Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today, we are going to be using Siri to help set up our Reminders. Now, I like to think of Reminders as like my sticky notes. Instead of having sticky notes posted everywhere, I have my Reminders app to help remind me of all the little tasks that I need to remember throughout the day.
Now, Apple likes to call Siri our personal assistant. And with Siri, we're able to do things like set calendar events, get walking directions. We're able to perform a web search, place a phone call, or even send a text message. And today, of course, is all about setting a reminder. Now, Siri is super easy to use. All we have to do to start Siri is just to say "Hey Siri," and then we'll just speak our reminder.
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?
