THANK you soo much, skimonkey and gabriel1! I am buying an iPad for my mother, who at 72 has just been diagnosed with macular degeneration after suddenly losing the vision in her right eye. She has always been very active and independent and now is having a very difficult time, both logistically and emotionally, with EVERYTHING, and I am sure that the iPad's voice capacities will aid her immensely. And your posts will aid ME immensely in setting up her iPad so that she can use it!! Thank you, once again. This forum is truly a godsend!!
You are so very welcome, Karina!
We are here for you anytime should you need help! Please let us know how your mom is as well. :)
