Mountain Lion Dictation

In this post, I'll talk a bit about the dictation feature in the newly released OS mountain lion 10.8.

While  this feature is not perfect it can definitely help those who have issues in  typing large amounts of text.  This feature can be launched by going into the edit menu found under the Apple menu bar.  Once this feature has been set up in system preferences, an individual only needs to  press the FN key  twice to activate the feature and press the key twice again to deactivate the feature.

An Introduction to Mac OS 10.8, MOUNTAIN LION

The long awaited release of Apple's Mac OS 10.8, Mountain Lion, finally arrived in the Mac App store on July 25, 2012.

I went through the steps to download the 4 gigabyte file. I don't know if it was because millions of customers were downloading on their server at the same time, but the download took about half an hour to complete on my system, which I found a little long considering I'm using an extremely high speed server from my carrier.

Talk to the President July Edition

Dear fellow AEBC members:

Ah yes and alas!  July is now in the books and I hope that everyone had an enjoyable one.  It has been a somewhat mixed bag for your board for this past month and I would again like to thank those of you who took the time to provide us with your feedback.  Please keep it coming to us at info@blindcanadians.ca.
I'll have a question for you at the end of my update but in the meantime, here is a quote for you.
 
"None of us is defined by our circumstances, nor are we defined by how other people perceive us. It is up to each one of us to define ourselves, and that is a life's work. Each of us has the ability to lead a dynamic life by pursuing our unique goals and dreams. There are no limits to what you can do."
