Setting up an Amazon Echo Dot 3rd gen as a blind user

It is not a secret for anyone how popular and useful is an Amazon Echo device today.
Just talking with this intelligent device you can find out more about lots of things, you can do shopping, organise your calendar and much much more.
I will show today in the podcast episode how to set up an Echo Dot 3rd gen as a blind user without any sighted help.
I have used for this my iPhone X where the Alexa app was installed before, and the process was simple.
When the device was added to my devices list I have had to organise it in terms of where it is placed. In my case, the new device is seating in my bedroom.
Also, I have renamed this new device and I have activated the sound for start and end requests.
This little beep help blind people to know if Alexa heard your request and also when the answer is following.
Enjoy the audio demonstration and do not hesitate to contact us for any help if you encounter problems during set up as a blind user.
Do you have a particular task what Alexa helps you with? Which one? Do you recommend any skill?

How tu update your Apple Watch OS as a blind person

In this podcast episode I will show how to update your Apple Watch OS as a blind person.
I am my self a blind user of Apple Watch and iPhone, and the whole process was recorded just to show you how to perform this task.
In order to update your Apple Watch you need the following:
• Your Apple Watch must sit on its charger
• Your Watch’s battery level must be at list 50%.
• Your Apple Watch and your iPhone must be in range and connected to same wireless network.
The update process must be started from Watch app on your iPhone.
Ask Siri to open Watch app and swipe right until all watch faces are past, then continue until general. Double tap on general and go to the right until software update. If a new version of Watch OS is available Voiceover will mention that.
If yes, proceed to update.
Will be 3 rounds of waiting time required: one for download, second for preparation and third for installing.
The whole process will take about 15 minutes, depending by your internet connection speed.
Two things are very important:
1. Do not remove your Apple Watch from its charger until the update is complete.
2. . Do not take your iPhone out of range of your watch and wi-fi network.
A short time, during the installation, your Watch will not speak.

Hope the audio demonstration below will help you to understand how simple is to update your Watch OS when a new version is available.
