iPad Training Session at the Kingston Apple Store

Six members from the Tuesday afternoon group in Kingston had a very informative and helpful iPad training session yesterday given by the business team in the Apple Store in Kingston – Ross, Darryl and Doug could not have been more helpful. They learnt about accessibility settings to make using their iPads easier, for example how to get their iPad to read out text in an email or on a website and how to get an easy-to-read view of an article on a website, as well as several other quick tips and shortcuts. They will be sharing these with the rest of the group as part of an iPad course their group are currently undertaking in their Dyscover sessions.
