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.

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

Introduction

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

iPadOS 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 over…

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.

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…

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…

Intro

If you own a computer or mobile device, there’s one thing you’ve probably heard time and time again, back up your data.

When your critical information is stored in only one medium, it is inherently vulnerable. The device’s internal storage, either a hard drive or solid state drive, could fail, complications could occur during an update or other system event, the device could get lost or stolen, or a flood or fire could break out at the device’s location.

For…

Intro

If you’re a Mac Voiceover user, there’s one word you absolutely hate hearing, the B word.

Often times, repeated experiences like this mean you probably have some performance issues to address. In this guide, I will give an overview of some of the most common problems and solutions.…

Intro

When iPhone X was released, it introduced a few swipe gestures to replace the Home Button. In iOS 12, Apple brought similar gestures to iPad, even the models that still have a home button. It seems like this new way of doing things is here to stay, so I wanted to try to demystify it. The below applies to all iOS and iPadOS devices I know of, running version 12 or newer.

The Concept

The basic idea is this: you take one finger, place it on the very top or…

Sometimes, a buzz buzz is better than a ding ding during say a meeting or at a conference. If you've ever forgotten to put your phone on silent during an important event, vibrations can help a lot.
