Douglas: Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today, we are gonna check out how to use some of our beginning TalkBack gestures. Now, for those of you that might not know, TalkBack is our Android screen reading software and a screen reader gives a person with a visual impairment the ability to totally use their device and it does this by speaking the items, or the information that's here on our screen. And I tell you, that really is pretty fantastic.
Now, by learning some basic TalkBack gestures, we will soon be moving through our device with ease. Okay, it will be easiest to learn our gestures as we explore the orientation of our screen. Now, our interface, of course, is a piece of glass and we call this piece of glass our home screen.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you. Your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you, and don't worry. Everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus, it connects you to the Hadley community and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge, and last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
