If this is your first time playing, you may be looking for a guide to get you started, on your way, and finish the game. Here are some things you need to know first:

Here is a procedure to play chess using Facebook Messenger application.
Note: this is text-only mode, it's as simple as a chat; for a blind user, it's recommended to have a real chess board in proximity to study the positions and perform moves, but it's also good for people who knows to play chess by heart.
It is simply a server which stays between you and your opponent.

In this tutorial, I will walk you through getting past Scene 8. For days and even months, I've been struggling to pass by Scene 8 and continue. But the thing I realized, was that you didn't have to keep swiping left multiple times or swiping right multiple times. This would cause me to crash into. obstacles. This guide helps you. "Guide me! Through the trees!" Edward Blake first says. You will get instructions saying to swipe in the direction pointed by…

Back in iOS 8, users couldn't text iPhones. They could only text another iPad. If they wanted to text an iPhone user that had a phone number to text, they would have to download a third-party texting app. Now that iOS 9-9.1 has rolled in, users can now do this. They no longer have to get an Apple ID from an iPhone user to text. They can now get an iPhone users phone number.
You can still text another iPhone by getting the iPhone user's Apple ID, but the question is how do you…

I’ve been waiting for the option to slow down the speed of double tapping when using VoiceOver for quite some time and now with iOS 9.1 it is here!
Several of my clients struggle with the speed at which they previously had to single finger double tap the screen to activate buttons, open apps, open links etc, not to mention two finger double tapping to answer or end calls coming in on their iPhones. I’m really pleased that Apple have made this option available as I think it will make…
In some iOS apps, with VoiceOver enabled, tapping the top of the screen with four fingers does not move to the top of lists. In these situations, it seems necessary to repeatedly flick to the left until the first item has been reached. Examples of this behavior can be found in Apple's new iOS 9 News app and the Voice Mail section of the built-in Phone app.
VoiceOver tells us the solution may be found in the status bar at the top of the screen. Follow these steps in an app that does…

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:
iPhone 6s introduces an entirely new way to interact with your phone. For the frst time,…
Xcode is the application development program made by Apple, available free in the App Store. It's used to make apps for iOS, OS X, Apple TV, and Apple Watch, in Swift or Objective-C, and can be used for C and C++ development as well. It is a powerful, intuitive piece of software… if you can see it. Voiceover users have a harder time of things in some ways. That's not to say that Xcode isn't usable--it…

It's the easiest way to capture audio from a microphone, your whole system, one application, or a combination of any of the above.

With the release of Apple Music Radio, I've found the need for quickly checking the title and artist of the currently playing song in iTunes, even when I'm not in the app. I wrote an AppleScript to do that.
It can be assigned to a key in keyboard commander if desired. Here's the code, simply paste it into the script editor and save it where you keep your other scripts:
tell application "iTunes"
