Blind Abilities gets back to its iPhone 101 series with a comprehensive review of a multitude of tasks aimed at helping us better understand what Apples much-maligned personal assistant, none other than Siri, can do for us, and what he or she cannot do for us. Pete Lane takes us through dozens of task and commands, ranging from simple to complex, and demonstrates how many are truly convenient and easy to perform.
Be aware that the phrase, Hey Siri, is used through out this episode; headphones recommended.
Join Pete as he meticulously demonstrates each step of every command, beginning with Siri Settings, each press of a button or verbal command, each response and each adjustment needed to settings or apps to ensure Siri’s actions are on target. When the dust settles, there are only a few tasks which cannot be completed by the Apple Personal Assistant.
Sit back and listen closely as Pete moves quickly through actions like asking the time all over the world, setting alarms and reminders, performing math computations and measurement conversions, searching for text messages, composing What’s App messages, emails and audio messages, and much much more.
Of course, a Blind Abilities podcast would not be complete without a full dose of music. Listen as Pete orders Siri to identify a song, play a song from a streaming service or his music library, play a radio station, and more!
Pete’s recommendation is that, like using any kind of technology, we need to get used to using it. We may just find it is something we will find beneficial, and save us valuable tine in our daily routine.
