Apple Essentials: TextEdit, and Apple Device Accessibility Features - Fireside Room - Ken Spencer
Join Ken Spencer to find out about TextEdit the simple word processing application in every Mac. TextEdit is the simplest and fastest way to type a note, write a regular old fashioned letter, or to start documenting your great memories. It is truly, no muss, no fuss.
After getting familiar with TextEdit, we will venture into the amazing accessibility features. Have you Mac type for you and even act as a proofreader reading back to you what you or it has typed. In addition, Ken will cover the wonderful accessibility features all the Apple Devices offer including: dictation, display size, and spoken text. We will also explore settings that make you screens much more readable. Our iOS devices have some wonderful accessibility features we can all use as we age.
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.
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 synced 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 TeamViewer. 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.
