First, let me thank everyone who kindly answered my questions in the forums here about how to do this efficiently. Now that I've mastered the skill, I felt I should summarize it in this guide.

Sharing the information you get in a text message is easy, but not always ovvious. And to do it rapidly takes practice.

Everyone knows that Siri is Apple's virtual assistant. From getting directions to finding pictures, Siri is the best. Before Siri, virtual assistants didn't sound human like. Instead, they were robotic and slow. But now we do have human virtual assistants, and one of them is Siri, and that is why I have created this guide to teach you some tips to using her.

I will also go in detail of the Siri Settings.

Tips to Using Siri

These tips include some jokes you can ask Siri that are yes, appropriate, as well as some useful commands.

If you have Microsoft Outlook, it can use several methods for syncing your contacts with your iPHONE; this guide doesn't cover that.

If you use iTUNES whether or not you also use Outlook, it too, has many ways to work with your contacts.

But for me, both iTUNES and Microsoft Exchange have tended to mess up my contacts as much as automate the sync process, so I have found another, and what I believe is a safer way for Windows users to keep contacts in order.

Since the release of iOS11, one problem a lot of us are having is that the new Siri voices can cause our phone to go silent. Usually, the only way to get speech bak when this happens is to hit that trusty little home button and the lock screen button simultaneously for about eight slow seconds before the phone will be forced to restart. Or, that's how it was until the iPhone 8.

What is 3D Touch, Anyway?

  3D Touch is arguably one of the biggest features of the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus models. Before we get in to specifics about how it works with VoiceOver, I thought it would be helpful to go directly to Apple's 3D Touch webpage to get an overview of exactly what 3D Touch is:

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.

Since 12th August 2015, Trivia Crack game has added a new feature, the cards. They are collectable items which can allow players to get extra-bonuses in coins, lives, or gems; coins are needed to use power-ups to help answering questions or obtain a second chance after a first mistake during a turn, lives (hearts) allow to play many games simultaneously, while gems are needed to get cards.

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.

Hi,
In this quick tutorial, I will teach you two different ways to double tap. Then, I'll switch to braille display style and teach you how to double tap from there, and then I will switch to bluetooth keyboard style where you will learn to double tap using your bluetooth keyboard.
Let's get started!
There are two ways to double tap on an item using VoiceOver:
1. Double tapping with one finger.
2. Holding one finger on the screen and tapping with the other.
These will both activate such things that need to be double tapped.

Creating a channel on Zello can be hard if it is your first time. But with a little help it will be so much easier.
To create a channel, tap the Navigation Menu button if VoiceOver is on.
Tap on the Channels button, then tap Add Channel. There are three options, Find a Channel, Trending Channels, and Create a Channel.
Choose the third option.
Name your channel, then add a description about it.
Choose the type of channel you want to create.
Anyone can talk: Anybody that adds your channel can talk.
