Dictate

In my last post, I ended it with a sentence about Dragon NaturallySpeaking. In essence, the post was about my transition from a PC to an iPad. On my PC I used Dragon NaturallySpeaking as my dictation software. I’ve been using that for years so I know how to get it to do what I [...]

Resizing Images

I thought it strange that I had to download and purchase apps to do something simple like resizing an image and viewing the image metadata on my iPad. The two apps I downloaded were Image Resize and Crop Size. As a PC user, finding the metadata and resizing images is easy. I’ve got a very [...]

Camera Stands

As a part-time geek and full-time Low-Tech Grandma, I have to make sure my mobile devices work for me. Not just working from a “does it turn on and function” point of view, but from a “how do you prop it when you’re not at your home desk” point of view. Yes, I’m talking about [...]

Mobile Hotspot

Instead of purchasing a mobile hotspot device, I turned my old iPhone into a personal hotspot. Don’t be misled into thinking that my old iPhone is relegated to hotspot status only. I still use the old iPhone as my primary phone. Yes, it’s an old iPhone 6S Plus. Ancient by today’s standards, but it’s not [...]

Journal

Not too long ago, I wrote about my recent iPad purchase. This, after years of operating in a Windows environment. My brain is doing all types of somersaults transitioning from Windows to iOS. I knew the transition was going to be tough, but I’ll power through. The biggest concern I had, however, was what was [...]

Chromebook

Warning: This is an article I started writing almost a year ago and, for some reason, it never made it to the blog. With the new year, I’m trying to complete unfinished articles and delete those that are not worth finishing. I’ve got a lot of completing and deleting to do. The following article, although [...]

Grandma Buys an iPad

Grandma Buys an iPad

Yep, I went and did it. I bought an iPad. I bought the iPad Air (Amazon affiliate link) 10.9-inch screen, fourth generation. For many years I’ve been debating whether or not to transition from Microsoft over to Apple. I knew Apple had great products and my lack of transition had nothing to do with whether or [...]

iPhone Notes

I recently discovered that I can scan documents using the Notes app on my iPhone. In the past I used CamScanner. It’s a neat little document scanner app from which you can send the scanned documents either as an email, text upload to Google Cloud, or a host of other ways to share documents. I [...]

Voice Record Pro

I can’t believe I didn’t write about this app before. Several years ago I came across a free app called Voice Record Pro. I started using it in conjunction with NaturallySpeaking. It allowed me to record dictation for later transcription. I previously used Dragon’s free Remote Anywhere dictation app, but they discontinued it only to [...]

Fish Don't Climb Trees

Oh, Happy Day!  Queue the Edwin Hawkins Singers! I am thrilled to pieces that I was finally able to install my old FrameMaker version 6 software on my new mini PC! If you’ve read my recent blog post, you’d know that I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time searching for a new journaling software [...]
