What Is Night Owl?

Night Owl is the only accessible Twitter client for the Mac, or at least the most popular among VoiceOver users. With it, you can retweets, manage lists, send direct messages, save searches, and much more. While most of the app is relatively simple, some parts can be a bit confusing, and there are some undocumented shortcuts and features. This guide will walk you through…

Realize that this is not an official guide, just one built from my quick and short experience.
There may be other features I don't know about yet.
For instance, I know that certain non-Apple apps can also use AirDrop, but not all of them, and there may be other file types that can use it that I did not try.

Based on what I found with experimentation, here is a step-by-step guide on using AirDrop:

AirDrop Instructions
AirDrop works only on iPhones, and allows…

I was wondering how I could get some kind of a sidebar back to make iTunes look like versions 10 and 11. There is a real easy way. On any of the screens where you see the radio button for Playlists you may click on that. No it isn’t going to look like iTunes from previous versions. But once you figure it all out you can do find the table that lists all the devices, movies, music and tv shows. In order to keep this table you must always either be have the playlist…

Before writing this guide, I have searched the Applevis site about this topic. According to the treads I have read, some people are having difficulties to make this feature work.

This guide will not make your raise to record feature to work consistently because to tell you guys honestly, that feature is a hit and miss, more often the lattar. So without further ado, here are the steps.

Note: This tip only works on the message app, so if you are trying to do this on the quick…

The following describes the layout and functions of the Jawbone Jambox bluetooth speakers, popularly used with iOs devices, in short summary form.

Jawbone Jambox Mini:

I have a Mini and so far, I find the buttons on the top:- a Plus which is vol up, a Dash which is vol down; and a round one that does status, and can answer and hangup calls if you're in conference or speaker mode through it.

On the end along one side of the JB-Mini:- from the top, a slider which slides…

That's right, I'v been playing my favorite audio game, Swamp for a week now, and I've…

I just purchased a big Jambox and for the most part, I love it. The speaker phone is awesome and almost makes the $269 price from Amazon worth it, but one thing was just driving me crazy.

When I plugged the JamBox into my Mac running Windows under BootCamp, the computer took priority over the Bluetooth connection between the speaker and the iPhone, and VoiceOver on the iPhone stopped talking through JamBox.
In fact, the iPhone stopped talking at all, since the PC-JamBox…

Before We Begin

Starting in iOS8, you can write braille on your iOS device, similar to apps like MBraille or Braille Touch. The difference is that this is global, available anywhere you have a keyboard. No switching apps and pasting text, you simply use braille instead of the on-screen keyboard. If you prefer to listen, you can hear an audio demonstration of braille input in iOS8 here. Note that…

What Are They?

In iOs eight, Apple introduced a feature called Interactive Notifications. This feature allows users to interact with notifications without leaving the app they are currently using. For example, you could respond to a text message without leaving Mail, Safari, or whatever app you're using at the moment you receive the text, or trash an email without ever opening the Mail app.

How Do I Use Them?

The officially documented way of doing this is through…

Not everyone knows that all Macs come with a full-featured chess game. Even fewer know that this game is completely accessible, and can even pull some nice tricks to make the experience better for the visually impaired. Below, I will explain the different ways to move around the board, make moves, get help, and set up the game to speak hints and moves. Please note that you do not need to know how to play chess to read this article. In fact, once you know how to use the app,…

For a while now, VoiceOver portable preferences has bugged me, because it's so outdated. Today I decided to tackle the problem once and for all.

Aims:
What I wanted was a way to take my preferences with me wherever I go. I have 2 macs, one at my house, and one at the place I volunteer, which sort of doubles as a demo machine. So I wanted to be able to make awesome things happen at home, then have the changes reflected when I went to another mac, without the really serious risk…

Intro

The default Mail app on the Mac is easy enough to use once you set up your mail accounts. You up and down arrow through your messages, press delete to trash some, and… Wait, how do you read messages? Enter? VO-j? Use the preview? When writing a message, how do you choose contacts, or add multiple contacts to a field? Why is it so hard to view attachments? How do you add mailboxes to your favorites bar, so you can access them with hotkeys? Okay, so Mail isn't as simple as it…

Intro

When you first get a Mac, and are learning VoiceOver, it can be hard to remember the myriad commands available. Some are pretty easy, like control-option-w to read the current word. Some are quite complex or seldom used, such as control-option-command-f5 to move the mouse pointer to where VoiceOver is focused. Then there are the core concepts, like interacting, moving around dialogs, getting to menus, and plenty more. So, I wanted to offer a guide that does not explain most…

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…
