Information About Upcoming TTJ Courses

First off I’d like to take a moment to give a great big welcome to all those who have recently joined this blog. We’ve had many new folks join within the last week, and I’m humbled and excited to have all of you. On this blog, we will occasionally post promotional info, but our main purpose for this blog is to help people by providing various written, audio, and video demonstrations, product reviews, and tutorials for your benefit. Go ahead and browse through our previous posts to see what we mean.

Additionally, we will use this blog to communicate information about our upcoming free courses. This post is one such communication. First, a reminder about what’s to come:

Learning Voiceover In and Out, a powerful course designed to teach the Voiceover screen reader from the ground up, will begin in less than one week, next Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at 3PM Eastern. This course will take place every Tuesday and Thursday at 3PM Eastern, through April 4. Following that, our iPad For All Computing course will begin. It starts on April 16, also 3-5PM Eastern, and runs every Tuesday and Thursday through Thursday May 23, 2019. Within the next few hours, several more posts will be made to this blog, including the link to join the live sessions, an audio demo of the Zoom and iTunes U app, and even our course outlines.

A Note Regarding iTunes U:

Our courses have both live sessions and other materials. The materials are distributed through the iTunes U platform. Space in iTunes U is extremely limited and is being handled on a first-come first-served basis. If you have made it in time to get a slot in the iTunes U course, you will be notified directly via email – not through this blog. If you do not receive an email notification, don’t worry. You can still join our live sessions, and you be able to access all course materials through the blog and in other ways to be announced soon. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

  1. Hi Matt,

    I am looking forward to the Voiceover class starting next week. I have downloaded the itunes u app and I already had the zoom app.

    I would like your feedback on the following. I have two iPhones. I would like to use one mostly for the class interaction and the other one for just practice or assignments as appropriate. Both phones have the exact same apps on them.

    I have: iPhone 8, updated with latest IOS 12 etc., I have a blue tooth head phone that I can use with it. This is my primary phone. It has both cell service and Wi Fi service.

    I have iPhone 5S, with latest IOS 12 etc. installed. I will likely have it plugged in since I am not sure the battery will hold for 2 hours. I think it will, but to avoid that issue I will keep it plugged in. I do not have headphones for this phone. This phone does not have cell service. It is connected only by Wi Fi.

    I may choose to take some notes which as of now I will take on my computer.

    Do you think it is better to use the iPhone 8 or 5S for the class or the individual work? My goal is to keep it both simple and effective.

    Thanks.

    Barbara

    1. Hi there, thanks for getting in touch. I definitely agree with using one phone to join the class meetings and using the other to try the various gestures. How is the performance of the iPhone 5s? I cannot imagine that it is as good as the iPhone 8, though I do know that with iOS 12 there have been drastic performance improvements, especially on older devices, so it may not be a problem. What I would say is whatever device you plan to use to do the most experimenting with, such as trying gestures and so on, just make sure that it has good performance. If you do decide to use the iPhone 8 to play with the gestures, do you perhaps have a basic set of EarPods or headphones, such as the one that comes with the iPhones originally? Because you could use that with your 5S if you decide to go that route, rather than having to pair your Bluetooth headset with the other device and so on.
