iPadOS

In this guide, I'll be explaining the king's strategies and how to defeat him accordingly. This guide has been updated, since the last modification was February of 2017, and since then, a Blind Legend has done some things.

Below is a listing of iOS and iPadOS finger gestures arranged by gesture type. All text, single document. Verified in iOS and iPadOS 13, using VoiceOver Practice; (Settings>Accessibility>VoiceOver>VoiceOver Practice).

Additional tips given at bottom.

Note: Much of the information gathered below is a rearrangement of Apple's original materials. Some editing has been performed to better fit the layout. Some editor's additions have been included, from experience and use.

Introduction

iMessage apps are a great way to express your emotions, play games, or even send videos or pictures. Some even allow you to send GIF's, Memes and other assortments of stickers.

What are iMessage Apps

iMessage apps are apps that are primarily for iMessage. iMessage apps can come in two forms.

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.

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!

Intro

Sometimes, the dock is just so small, but you have so many apps that are essential, and you'd rather not go sifting through your pages looking for that app when you need it. With this cool trick, you can fit more than 4 apps in your dock, just by using folders. Here's how.

Quick Notes

I previously wrote this guide to demonstrate this process, but since then it has been very out of date. Therefore, I've updated the guide accordingly and I've split it into two separate sections.

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.

Introduction

The Amazon Echo Dot is a smart bluetooth Alexa-enabled speaker which allows you to listen to music, play fun games, set important reminders and alarms, and complete smart home tasks.

The speaker has its companion app, Amazon Alexa, for enabling skills and interacting with all your Alexa-enabled devices. The Echo Dot is a suitable choice for you or your family if you want something small on the outside, but big on the inside, and for a cheap price between $50-100USD.

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 your battery, and hopefully keep it charged for a pretty long time.

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 place when I was without it.
