Got an iPad? One Big Secret People Overlook!

Dr. Z swears by his iPad for video communication and uses his iPad and his iPhone for a lot of things during the day.

It is called Spotlight. It is not an app, but it is part of your iPad!

What is Spotlight? It is a built-in search engine for your iPad, like Google search for your iPad.

How do you get it? Simple–click the home button (the button on the bottom of your iPad)–click it slowly, twice (or maybe 3 times), until you see the image below:


Enter anything you want to look for–your friend’s name, a hotel you want to stay in, an email you want to find.

You will get a list of the results of your search. If it is an email, the email will show up in your list. If it is a hotel and it is not on your device, click “Search Web”, it will then do a Google or Yahoo search and you will see the results on your iPad!

Try it, you will love it!

Also, do not forget to download the NEW Z5 Mobile app for video communication (you can’t use paper for this) (link.) You can make video calls with Z5 on your 4G/4G LTE connection!

Dr. Z is proud to be part of the team that understands and listens to the needs of the deaf and hard of hearing community!

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.

Try Z5 Mobile, you will LOVE it, just like Dr. Z!

Disclosure: Dr. Z (Philip W. Bravin) is associated with CSDVRS, currently its Vice-President of Business Development
