Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today will be sending a text message using Siri. Now, Apple likes to call Siri our iPhone's personal assistant, and with Siri we're able to do things like set calendar events, and reminders, get walking directions. We're able to perform a web search, or even place a phone call. And today, of course, we will be using Siri to send a text message.
Now, Siri is a super easy to use. All we have to do to start a text with Siri is to just say, "Hey Siri, text," and of course then we either speak the phone number that we want to text, or if the person we're texting has been added to our Contacts app, we can just speak that person's name.
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?
