Podcast With A Blindness Perspective.

Aug 8, 2019

Blind Abilities offers another episode in our iPhone 101 series, covering the much-requested process of selecting, copying, cutting, deleting and pasting text on your i-Device. Pete walks us through not only the multi-step process of using your iOS Rotor for such actions, but also reviews the streamlined process for using the 3-finger Quadruple-tap to capture the last spoken phrase by Voiceover.

Learn how to use the Rotor for each individual step of the process, and when to use a work-around to cover an apparent bug in the Text Selection Rotor. Also, see when using the streamlined 3-finger Quad gesture will allow for a quick grab of text to the Clipboard for easy copying into a Note, an email or a text message, or pasting it into a search field in Safari or other ready destination.    

Sit back and enjoy this short demonstration of a process which we can use regularly, but which can sometimes be elusive in grasping exactly how it works!
