Partitioning a Drive
When you partition a drive, you essentially make your computer see two different drives where there used to be one. This is useful for a variety of reasons and is something you may find yourself needing to do, but the process on a Mac is a bit complicated. It may be easy to do visually, but using Voiceover, there are some tricks you should know. So, let's get started.
This guide assumes that you have previously created a fanfiction.net account and have waited the amount of time before you are allowed to create a new story. i recommend you use a hardware keyboard of some sort, otherwise this will be quite difficult, maybe even impossible.
This guide assumes that you have already received an invitation to AO3, and created your account. These steps will most likely be most easily followed using an ipad and bluetooth keyboard, but should also be doable on any mobile device with voiceover.
Apple’s iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Watch) come with accessibility features built-in. The purpose of this document is to give the blind or low vision user a concise introduction to the accessibility features offered on iOS devices.
VoiceOver, a feature Apple has built into all iOS devices to enable Braille and speech access for users who are unable to see the screen, has revolutionized the lives of countless thousands of blind people around the world. It works best when apps are deliberately developed in ways that ensure compatibility with VoiceOver, blind people are considered during development and included in all facets of the testing process.
This is an updated and refined version of this guide, now that I've learned a little more, and stopped being so confused.
So we all know about the keyboard commander, and how you can make it read the time when you press option + t, but I personally find that method really really slow. In addition, for me at least, the date doesn't even read some times. So I set to making my own solution.
So, if you've got VoiceOver controllable by Applescript (in the General tab), you can make it say stuff etc.
Hello, everyone. Two years and literally thousands of changes later, the second edition of Personal Power is now available. It's an ebook which I wrote and am giving away freely. Basically, the book takes people from setting up their iPhones to thriving in the iOS environment. It teaches how to use VoiceOver, the various parts of iOS, and a whole lot of apps.

If you find that you come across (or yourself write) short chunks of text that you need to translate on the fly, like Facebook comments or an email, here is one solution.
You can copy the text to the clipboard, and then you can use a shortcut to translate the contents of the clipboard using Microsoft’s translation engine. You can activate the shortcut in several different ways. We’ll take each of these steps in turn:
Copying text to the clipboard
There are three main ways you will achieve this:
Thanks to Kevin Chao, I now have an easy way to convert Bookshare books to the EPub format that iBooks will accept. This assumes that you are on Windows (though I am sure the process is quite similar on a Mac), that you have a current Bookshare membership, and that the book you want to convert is in DAISY format, downloaded from Bookshare.
You will need:

Though I’m not always the best writer, I do enjoy writing down my thoughts from time to time. There’s just one problem with that. It’s not secure.
Sure, there are all kinds of apps for the mac and your I device that allow you to journal. However, most of the apps I have seen are only somewhat usable, or just way too fancy for what I want to do. I played with the MacJournal app for the mac a few months ago, but I was not impressed. It would always crash on me while I was writing, and I finally just tossed it out the window, so to speak. So, now, what to do?
First, let me thank everyone who kindly answered my questions in the forums here about how to do this efficiently. Now that I've mastered the skill, I felt I should summarize it in this guide.
Sharing the information you get in a text message is easy, but not always ovvious. And to do it rapidly takes practice.
If you have Microsoft Outlook, it can use several methods for syncing your contacts with your iPHONE; this guide doesn't cover that.
If you use iTUNES whether or not you also use Outlook, it too, has many ways to work with your contacts.
But for me, both iTUNES and Microsoft Exchange have tended to mess up my contacts as much as automate the sync process, so I have found another, and what I believe is a safer way for Windows users to keep contacts in order.
