In this demo I show you how you can get the Mac's system clock to speak every hour, every quarter hour or just on the hour.

In this demo, I show you how to print to a PDF file rather than having to print to a printer.  Useful for saving receipts or other inforamtion as I do in Safari.

This demo outlines the steps to take in enabling VoiceOver at the Login screen in OS X (System Preferences, Users & Groups, Login options) to allow Voiceover to speak and not necessarily be on in Finder which can be toggled on or off via Command+F5.

In this demo, I show you how you can password protect a folder in OS X by Using the Disk Utility and turning your folder in to a password protected volume that you can mont and dismount when ever you need to.

In this demo I show you where you locate family purchased items in Os X (iTunes, iBooks and Mac App Store), iOS (iTunes, iBooks, and App Store), and the Apple TV (Movies and TV Shows).  Demo is not on setting up family sharing which is accessed in iOS with Settings/iCloud or OS X System Preferences/iCloud.

With the latest release of Yosemite update out at the end of January 2015, VoiceOver users can now playback voice messages in Messages in Yosemite.  Before this, you could only send voice messages, not play them back on the Mac: of course, you could always play them back on iOS.

In this demo I show you how easy it is to use QuickTime Player in Yosemite to record the screen/audio of the iPhone running iOS 8.  Really it is just a matter of plugging in your iPhone to the Mac via the lightening cable, running QuickTime Player, choose iPhone camera and Microphone from the capture device popup, choose audio level, and press record.

In this demo I show you how to access the Extras menu once Voiceover brings the Main Menu in to focus with the two finger double tap at the top of the Trackpad, which then allows you to drag your finger across to the Extras menu items and then take your finger up to access a specific Extras menu item.
