Safe driving and emailing
You need to get a phone holder. These are quite cheap and you can get them anywhere. This is definitely recommended.
Actually there is another option, which is wait for the “listening” pause and then say your command. This way you don’t have to touch the screen at all, as it will pause for voice commands several times a minute. The maximum it will go for without pausing is 30 seconds. I would still recommend a phone holder as it’s nice to have the option to tap when you want. If you don’t have this listening trigger switched on, you can set up under preferences > voice commands. Switch on all the trigger pause options.
❝I work with an individual who is blind and suffering from carpel tunnel type issues as a result of excessive keyboarding and swiping – reading with your hands takes its toll – and the hands-free features are a great boon to someone with this dual challenge who really needs the opportunity to allow their hands/wrists to rest yet still be able to maintain a high level of productivity (and have some juice left to play the piano when work is done), so thank you.❞
