MY adventure with my Mac has been tedious. but the mere fact of doing projects has caused me to continue to learn more about mY MacBook. I have finally discovered how to listen to my PDF files on my Computer. It is done through iTunes but it is a bit frustrating because I can only copy one page at a time, so a 15+ page article gets a little cumbersome. http://quietube6.com/v.php/http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZAKKddfjoA
I have discovered how to use quietube for blog posts and my website for school just go to go to quiet tube. I put it in my favorites bar then when you find a youtube video you want to use, push your quietube button and waaa lah, there are no adds around the video. I really like that for my school stuff.
This is a great guide on how to use pdf files on my macbook so I decided to keep it here. If this works by using the preview option, It will make listening to my pdf files much easier. I should have looked this up before I did my research for my technology piece. One last discovery I found when I open a PDF file is if I open it in the preview option, I can go to my edit options on the tool bar at the top of my screen and there is a “speak” option. I will no longer use the iTunes option. I am thankful I found this one out. Little by little I am continuing to learn “tricks” of getting around. All of these options helps take away the stress of technology and helps me concentrate more on the content I am trying to focus on.
Here is a funny “tutorial” I made on Jing to show my new knowledge of shutting down files or programs.
Because I have been use to using a pc, I am not familiar with the different options on the Mac. In reality, I have not been very confident with technology in general, so for many, this actually might seem like a joke but for me this is ground breaking! So until my last post, it is just me and my Apple strolling down the avenue. Until next time.
