I am an senior woman who is blind. I came kicking and screaming into the computer world and ended up teaching using screen reading software. But I never got the chance to dictate documents because the software programs were incompatible -until Siri combined with VoiceOver by Apple.
Not only can I ask Siri to write notes, appointment and reminders. I can ask Siri the commands needed to open these apps. I’ve also have fun having Siri search for nearby restaurants or search on the web. Next up: email!
My name is Cathy McAdam. I work with MATP and will be posting on this blog occasionally. As my adventures in technology-enhanced living continue, I wonder, how do you use Siri? Please post your comments and answers. I look forward to meeting you!Tweet
