Description

Your time is valuable. Siri spends it wisely.

Hi,

These few minutes opened my eyes . . .

I was driving and was crazy busy. I had just got my iPhone and thought I'd try Siri out. I told Siri to find the Patagonia store in Chicago, since I needed to return a jacket.

She found it.

Then I asked her to call the store. She called it. In minutes my return problem was solved.

Then I had her schedule appointments and reminders for me.

Then she gave me directions home.

In those few minutes I started to understand all Siri could do for me. So I researched EVERYWHERE- books, videos, articles on all the things Siri can do. I was amazed.

I showed it to others.

They were amazed and had no idea Siri could do all that.

So, I created the ultimate course all about Siri.

It's guaranteed that you'll learn something you'll use.

Discover how Siri can greatly boost your productivity, organized your busy life and make life a heck of a lot easier.

Enjoy,

Elaine~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's how Siri will read a Kindle book to you.

Tip: If you turn on voice over and you're not in Kindle, Siri may start saying everything on the screen. (Without having Siri turn on voice over, and turning on manually, this happened all the time.) If Siri is "stuck" in saying what you're pressing, simply hold down the home button and say, "Siri, turn off voice over." Then start all over in the Kindle app.

Remember to turn off voice over when you're done. If you forget, just hold down the home button and say, "Siri, turn off voice over."I hope you enjoy having Siri read to you as much as I do. :-)
