Apple Essentials: Easy to use Dictation - How to Conquer Siri - Fireside Room - Ken Spencer
The iPhone has enhanced our lives in many ways, but it is not the easiest thing to type on. So why type? Let Siri and Dictation do all the heavy lifting. You can use them for email and texting—both writing and reading. We will touch on using learning how Notes, Reminders, and Appointments are much easier with Siri, and discover how to use Siri for navigation. We will also venture into new ground by getting to know other voice helpers like Hound, Google Now, and Amazon Echo-Alexa. Siri and Dictation are remarkable and getting better all the time.
iPhone/iPad Basics - E-25 - Zulay Frost & Marganne Meyer
This class will cover the basics of how to use an iPad (most topics also apply to iPhones). Topics may include: WiFi versus cellular data, touch typing, copy/paste functions, password protection, using the cameras, FaceTime, messaging, voice mail, email, map options, basic hardware accessories, and standard apps. This is an open-format class and all topics may not be covered.
Photo Editing Basics - E-24 - Robert Gouine
Robert will present an overview of general photo editing tools and techniques for your Mac. These tools and techniques can be used in many photo editing applications such as Elements, Photos or iPhoto. This class is geared toward people that are new to photo editing on a Mac.
Getting Around On The Internet - E-23 - Pete Lozzi
Join Pete for a three-hour tour of accessing the Internet! On this tour, we will look at web browsers and receive Pete's strong recommendations — with tips for using Safari on your Mac and iPhone/iPad. Next we will explore Google, its pro’s and con’s, and how to use Google services effectively. In addition to browsing the web, we will discuss Internet security, viruses, Adware and Spyware as compared to Social Engineering schemes such as Phishing and Pharming, and how to navigate around them. We will discuss password conventions and how to stay safe while controlling what you can control... Additionally, we’ll discuss making purchases using the web and subscription based services.
Ask Richard! Ask Karen! - E-21 - Richard Applebaum & Karen Downs
This is an open-format class where attendees help determine the discussion. Do you know how to keep your iPhone and/or iPad up-to-date backed up and synchronized with your computer? Are you making backups of your computer? What is this "Cloud" thing? Are you uncertain how to be safe when making online purchases? Do you have questions about your home WiFi network. Maybe you want to understand how to get remote assistance with Team Viewer. Should you have virus protection? Do you need to tame your System Preferences or organize your files and folders? No topic is too basic, or too techie, for us to tackle. If we don't know the answers, we will try to find them.
