Skype subtitles

Skype subtitles: Did you know that if you are calling someone with a hearing impairment you can enable subtitles? We found this advice “Subtitles can be enabled on a per-call basis, or for all calls. To enable subtitles for a specific Skype call, initiate the call or accept an incoming call. When the call connects, click the plus button at the bottom right and select ‘Turn subtitles on’ from the menu. This will enable subtitles for that call only.”

Apple Phone app helps you focus on work

If you would like to spend more time working and less time with your Apple Phone you might want to investigate this app.  It costs £1.99 from the Apple Store and the idea is to help you focus on your work and not break off to look at your phone. If you use the App enough it results in real trees being planted.

 

Entertaining grandchildren at a distance

These would mostly work with video chats:

  • Take turns in having an expression (happy, sad, surprised, bored etc,) on your face and ask the other to guess what the expression is.
  • Ask the children to tell what food/toy/book/joke/teacher they like/hate/find funny etc.
  • What sounds different objects/animals/birds make.
  • Virtual stickers and gifts as prizes for best expression/joke/answer etc may be given.

We have also been sent instructions (attached) of how to make and play Evie’s game. What fun!
