This guide assumes that you have already received an invitation to AO3, and created your account. These steps will most likely be most easily followed using an ipad and bluetooth keyboard, but should also be doable on any mobile device with voiceover.

Getting Started

There are many ways to access the post new story (or work as the site refers to it) page, but I will show you the most direct way. Double tap the post link after the link labeled hi, followed by your chosen…

Intro

If you’re coming to the Mac from Windows, you’re probably used to either downloading apps from the Microsoft Store, or downloading an app package from a website and running its included installer. On macOS, there are several ways apps can be installed and uninstalled, which I will give an overview of in this guide.

The good news is that whatever methods the developer has employed, the installation and uninstallation processes should seem very straightforward to you,…

Warning

3D printing is an emerging technology. It uses hot materials, moving mechanisms and the quality of components cannot be assured. Please bear this in mind and take appropriate proportions in the pursuit of 3D printing glory... Now you have been warned...

Introduction

I need to begin this by managing expectations. 3D printing is an art, it requires patients, it requires failure and understanding why that failure occurred, it requires knowledge and it often…

Author's note: Unfortunately, I can't include the interactive table of contents found in the EPUB version. To get that, go to: https://michaelfeir.blogspot.com/2020/04/personal-power-ios-edition.html?m=1

You'll need to navigate by headings. There are three levels of headings. I hope people find this a useful and worthy addition to the AppleVis website.

Intro

If you use a Mac, at some point or another, you will need to drag an item from one place to another. You could be, among other things, trying to move a file, reorder a list, or attach photos and other files to a document.

While there is no, “Magic solution,” to drag and drop with VoiceOver, there are several methods you can employ that just might work to accomplish the task at hand. These tips come predominantly from my own personal use, as literature on how to do…

Ever since I changed to using Windows 10 in my VMware Fusion virtual machine, I've struggled with a fair bit of latency and audio problems when using the standard HDAudio device. Changing the buffer time didn't make a huge difference, but now I've found a way to install the VMaudio driver and revert to the old es1371 audio device so I can lower the latency. This makes my Windows 10 run like my Windows 7 VM latency-wise, and I figured everyone else could use this info, so here goes (note:…

Intro

A few weeks ago, I found myself looking for keyboard tips for VoiceOver users online, hoping I'd find something that was perhaps different. I was getting tired with the amount of stress BSI (Braille Screen Input) was giving me, and my most vulnerable weak spot was the onscreen keyboard. I was too slow on it, couldn't type quick enough to match my laptop-typing standards, and was just over the fact that I must've been relying too much on my BrailleSense to have a backup in…

Hi everyone...

I know battery is often an issue for everyone, but especially those of us who rely heavily on our phones for every day tasks, and I often find myself using the low power mode function introduced in IOS9 to extend my battery life. Considering it doesn't seem to have an effect on performance, for me at least, I thought, why not keep it on all the time.

Of course, those of you who have tried it know that it is automatically disabled when your device has been…

Why?

I've been looking for a way to have quick access to certain sites for my Dungeons & Dragons game for a while now. In Mac OS it is possible to drag the address of a site to the desktop but for us VoiceOver users it's hit and miss at best. In this short and ineptly composed guide I'm going to explain how to write a quick and easy file as an alternative.

Steps

  1. open a text file in your editor of choice, we will use text editor for illustrative purposes…

Intro

If you’re new to the Mac, learning and mastering the VoiceOver screenreader can seem daunting at first. In an attempt to streamline the search for essential getting started information across the AppleVis website, I will provide a series of tips, along with links to more comprehensive guides and podcasts, organized by heading and subheading.

From personal experience, I have found that one of the most effective ways to learn a new screenreader is to read documentation…

Intro

iOS 13 adds the ability to customize punctuation even further than before. Perhaps you're tired of VoiceOver saying elepsis all the time, or you just hate when it reads punctuation you don't want it to read, but the default system groups don't help; Well, that all ends now!

What is a Punctuation Group

A punctuation group (or a list) is simply a group of punctuation, with each punctuation having different options. The group stores this punctuation and tells…

Introduction

As part of their continuing efforts to make iPad a device which customers can use for real work, Apple has this year created iPad OS, a distinct, though still closely related, operating system cousin of iOS.

iPad OS does everything iOS does on the iPhone and iPod Touch, and more. One of the key distinguishing features, which Apple has made further improvements too, is multitasking.

There are two main flavours to multitasking on iPad, floating windows…

Disclaimer
The strategies I list here may not work for some people. They could work for you depending on how fast your swipes are or the game speed. Either way, I hope this guide helps you.
Easy mode
This mode is easy. And when I say easy, I mean laughably easy. Build a good attack force, build a decent size defense, and you should be good.
Here’s a good thing to do that is guaranteed to get you past the easy mode. build a big attack force, as mentioned above, and…

Improving Battery

We love our technology when it works. But when it dies, it's very frustrating. You'll think things such as, "I literally just charged this an hour ago," or, "Why is my battery draining so fast?"

Usually, this is the result of battery aging. Your battery can only take so much before it starts getting old, and it needs to be replaced.

Other times, it can be software-related. This guide should hopefully help you get at least a bit more juice out of…

Taking a United States road trip with a sighted driver using your iPHONE, you can become a full partner in the experience.

My husband and I are again driving from California to Indiana on our seventh cross-country road trip, which gives me the necessary experience to share some tips.

First, as you drive the interstate highways, you will have varying levels of service from fast LTE to pokey Edge to no service at all. You might wish to keep a log of where you do not have service…

Public libraries are providing more and more of their content in a digital format. For libraries, it saves on space and staff time, and providers are stepping up to deliver video, music, eBooks and audiobooks electronically. Why it works libraries purchase collections from a provider. This gives their patrons the ability to "borrow" content using a computer or mobile device. When the loan period is over, the content is automatically "returned". For example, if you check out an eBook, it…
