Physical description and demo of the Incase iPhone nano 7th generation and iPhone 6s Arm Sport Bands from Apple

As I use both of these Incase Arm Sport Bands, in this demo, I take you through a physical description of both of the iPod nano 7th generation and iPhone 6s  Arm Sport Bands available from Apple Stores or online.

I just find these cases handy to use by getting your iPod nano or iPhone out of the way when exercising, gardening etc, and with the use of Bluetooth ear phones, you don't have any wires to worry about.

Demo of an iOS app that I use 2 to 3 hours a day: the Audible app from Audible

Odd that after 384 demos I've finally gotten around to doing a podcast on one of my most used apps on a daily basis: the Audible app.

In this demo I go through purchasing a book from http://www.audible.com via Safari on the Mac, quickly demo how I listen to an Audible book on the Mac, and then go through a fairly extensive demo of the Audible app on my iPhone 6s including: accessing the book I just purchased, discuss in-depth the book title playing screen and its options, the book shelf, and the other Tabs (including the More tab where you will find Settings).
Hope you enjoy listening to the demo as much as I like actually using the app and demoing it.

Demo of Apple’s iOS Podcast app now available on the Apple TV 4th generation

In this demo, I demonstrate Apple's Podcasts app that became available with the 9.1.1 Apple TV OS update.

I first start with a demo of the app on the iPone, and then move over to the Apple TV 4th generation.
In the demo I cover the layout of the app, accessing unread podcasts, listing "My Podcasts", searching/subscribing/playng podcasts, and demo how the play position between iOS and TV os is synchronised.
During the demo of searching for podcasts to subscribe, I use the Remote app on my iPhone rather than the Apple tv 4th generation keyboard and point out if you are using the Remote app on your iOS device, you can use the on-screen keyboard, voice dictation or a Bluetooth keyboard if you have one connected.

Demo of he iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard, and Apple Pencil using VoiceOver

In this demo, I take you through a physical description and use of the iPad pro, smart keyboard, and the Apple pencil.

The Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil are sold separately to the iPad Pro.
I note with the Smart Keyboard that to perform the Quick Nav VoiceOver command for Perform Action, that it is Left/Up/Right, not Up/Down as on a standard BT keyboard due to the moulding of the Up and Down keys in to one key.  In addition, as the Smart Keyboard has no Escape key, Control+Option+Accent performs the Escape VoiceOver function (this can be used on BT keyboards as well).
With both the touch screen and the keyboard, I demo how to use Split View which you can activate using VoiceOver from the Status Line by a three finger flick to the left.
In the demo, I use the Apple Pencil for the hand writing mode for VoiceOver which can be turned on and accessed by the VO Rotor: Settings, General, Accessibility, VoiceOver, Rotor: Hand Writing.
Note - to pair the Apple Pencil to the iPad pro, just plug it in to the lightning port, this is also where you charge the Pencil as well.
Use Notifications Today Screen Battery Widget to give you the battery status of the iPad Pro as we'll as the Apple Pencil.
Demo quickly the multi-tasking gestures which can be used on an iPad, if you turn the gestures on in Settings, General, MMulti-Tasking.
Complete the demo by showing you how to use the Smart Keyboard as a cover for the iPad pro.

Similarly with Belkin: I first demo the official WeMo app, and then the QuickSwitch app on my iPhone, and then demo the QuickSwitch app on the Apple watch.  Unfortunately the QuickSwitch app has no complication for use on the Apple watch, I have to just use the app.
Conclude in commenting that these two apps just make the Apple watch that more useful.

Demo of the updated Twitter client for Mac OS X using VoiceOver: now accessible.

On the 31st of December 2015 Aussie time, the official Twitter client for Mac OS X was updated.  Amongst the improvements was giving access to VoiceOver users to the interface.

In this demo, I take you through a brief exploration of the Twitter client, navigating the home time line, examining a tweets details, activating a link within a tweet, replying to a tweet, switching between the views for Home timeline, Notifications (mentions), Messages, Profile, Lists, and Search, demo of the Tweet sub-menu from the main menu to allow for retweeting of tweets etc, and posting a new tweet.
As this is a short demo, I did not go in to Messages, Lists or Searching.
Demo was mainly to show you that the updated Twitter app for Mac OS X is indeed accessible.
A few rough edges, but nothing that stops basic solid functioning of the app.

Demo of pairing two Beats Pill 2.0 portable speakers together

As a follow-up to my December 7 2015 demo of a Beats Pill 2.0 portable speaker, as I stated then, I would do a demo of pairing two Beats Pill 2.0 speakers when I purchased two.  Now I have and this demo shows you how to firstly pair them together so that they play the same sound and with the 2nd pairing for each speaker playing left right channel.  Pairing the two speakers together is done via NFC which you will find the NFC tag at the back left hand side of the speakers (slightly raised logo).

Process for pairing two speakers is:
1. Turn on both speakers (mine both paired themselves to my iPhone with only the 2nd one being actually paired),
2. The first speaker, hold Play/Pause in to put it back in pairing mode,
3. First speaker touch NFC tag (back left hand side) with 2nd speaker,
4. First time you touch NFC Tags together: single beep play both speakers together, and second touch two beeps for left right channel play, and finally,
5. Can keep touching the NFC tags together if you wish to go between these modes if you wish.
You can turn one speaker off and keep using a single speaker if you want.
I have been using the first pairing mode for listening to cricket with each Beats Pill being in different parts of the house, and the left right speaker mode for listening to music in the same room with the speakers positioned for left and right channel/speaker listening.

Demo of the Time Buzz app for Apple watch to get the time using Haptic feedback.

The TimeBuzz app makes it possible to feel the current time through vibrations of the Taptic Engine on the Apple Watch. The app is designed especially for visually impaired people. With this app you can discretely get to know the current time without the need for the time to be pronounced. The app itself is completely VoiceOver accessible.


If you open the app on the Apple Watch you will see a large button with the text 'Tap to buzz the time'. When you tap this button the app will start buzzing the current time. It will translate the time into a pattern of long and short vibrations whereby it will first buzz the hours and then the minutes. In between every sequence of vibrations there will be a short pause to be able to separate the hours and minutes from each other. You will feel a distinctive vibrating buzz when opening the app and when you start the buzzing of the current time so that you know when you opened the TimeBuzz app or tapped the button on the screen.


The Big Ben buzz pattern

With this pattern a short vibration (that feels like a short tick) indicates a 1 and a double vibration indicates a o.

The hours are always in the range from 0 to 12, even in the morning or afternoon/evening. So three o'clock in the afternoon is indicated by 3 short vibrations and not 15.

The minutes are separated into tens and single digits. 24 minutes is indicated by 2 short vibrations, a short pause and then followed by 4 short vibrations.


Dom Tower buzz pattern

This pattern is similar to the Big Ben pattern but it shortens 5 single vibration into 1 longer vibration. This allows for the hours and minutes to be buzzed quicker. For example an 8 is shorted to 1 longer vibration and 3 shorter vibrations.


Notre-Dame buzz pattern

With this pattern the tens and single digits of the minutes are not buzzed separately but as one number. As with the Dom Tower pattern, a value of 5 is shortened to a longer vibration.


Time Square buzz pattern

With this pattern both the hours and minutes are separated in tens and the remainder are buzzed separately. A value of five or a multiple of that are shortened to one longer buzz. For example 16 is buzzed as 1 short vibration, a pause, followed by 1 longer vibration and 1 short vibration.


All of these patterns can either be changed via the Apple watch or on the iPhone.




In this demo, I take you through getting the app, brief run through of the iOs app, installing the app on to the Apple watch, more in-depth look at both apps, a run through of the buzz patterns, using the Time Buzz as a complication on the clock face, developer tips for using the app discreetly without VoiceOver, and where to get more contact information.

Overall tip for Apple watch usage: turn mute on, set wake on wrist raise to resume, and toggle VoiceOver off.
Go to http://www.timebuzz.nl for more information, and the developer tips on using the app on the Apple watch.

Blindfold Air Hockey demo from Kid Friendly Software

Blindfold Air Hockey is an fully accessible audio game that's similar to the arcade game Air Hockey.

In Blindfold Air Hockey, you have a mallet or paddle, and there's a puck on the playing table. To start the game, hit the puck swiping your finger. The puck heads towards your opponent's goal, where he knocks it back to you, bouncing off of the walls as it gets closer to your goal. You block his shot, and fire the puck back at his goal. You need 4 goals to win the game.

Using head phones or ear buds, you hear the puck heading towards you, and you control your mallet by moving your finger left and right. When the puck is close enough, you'll hear a ding sound, and you can swipe the puck aim at your opponent's goal.

Blindfold Air Hockey comes with a tutorial level, and 16 different opponents - varying from beginner to expert.  

Blindfold Air Hockey was suggested by several blind gamers who enjoyed Blindfold Breakout and Blindfold Bowling.

The game comes with coins; you need one coin to play. To get more coins, you can listen to advertising videos, or purchase coins as an in-app upgrade.

In this demo I show how to pair a Bluetooth speaker to the Apple tv 4th generation.  I then demonstrate switching between BT speaker, AirPlay, and Apple tv/tv connected audio.  I point out during the demo that using BT speakers with the Apple tv is not the greatest experience due to both music and VoiceOver coming out of the same speaker, but unlike the Apple tv/tv audio, VoiceOver is very choppy and the sound of the external BT speaker I demo isn't very loud even though the max volume was being used: I also found this poor maximum volume when using my Beats Wireless speakers.  Overall I much prefer to use AirPlay since VoiceOver speaks through the tv connect audio and other audio goes out to the AirPlay speaker.

In this demo I take you through a number of things you can do with Siri on the Apple tv.  Siri doesn't speak as it does on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, but displays text as it does on the Apple watch.  However, VoiceOver will read the text that Siri generates.  To use Siri: hold down Siri button (middle button of 3 on Siri remote), speak command and release button.  The items I take you through include getting the time, date, and weather, turning VoiceOver on or off, activating controls on the viewable screen, returning to the screen, dismissing the Siri interface, opening apps, searching and playing movies/music, navigating the App store, and getting Siri to tell you what types of commands you can use.  Also tried to get Siri to tell me a joke but she wouldn't, instead she at least answered why the chicken crossed the road.

In this demo I demonstrate how you can navigate the Apple tv 4th generation using the Nimbus game controller with VoiceOver.  once paired, the cursor takes you up, down, left and right, left stick moves as cursor (although found this harder), right stick appears to do nothing as far as VO is concerned, DPad of buttons y button at 12 on clock face, x at 9, a at 6, and b at 3 - A acts as click and B acts as back menu button.  Front triggers and shoulder buttons move left and right across a row.  Front middle of Nimbus is the lightening connector for charge, slide on/off switch to the left of the lightening connector and pair to the right.  All up, easy to use with VoiceOver and to navigate.  Of course, no Siri button on the controller.  Figured, if my boys can have fun playing games with it, I can have fun navigating with it.  Final note: no need to turn it off via the slide switch as Nimbus will go to sleep after 15 minutes.  Remember that at time of recording, only two controllers can be paired along with the Siri remote or one BT head set and game controller plus the Siri remote.
