This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.
And a quick tip about sending messages. You may well already know this but I did not and, when having lunch with my darling friend Penny, discovered that she did not either. So, what is it? Well, it’s a facility on a mobile that I only discovered by accidentally pressing the wrong key.
I know a lot of you can type a message as quick as a flash. Some of you even use two fingers (which I think looks very tekkie indeed). Unfortunately, I am like a snail when it comes to txt msgs. My way is clumsy one finger typing – and even that is not very efficient! My fingers just seem too big and I am always tapping the wrong keys and predictive text can do more harm than good! Basically typing a long message leaves me exhausted.
Well, what I discovered is that there is a microphone symbol on your mobile phone when you use Whats App or want to send a text message.
Click on new message.
Choose the name of the person you want to message.
Press the microphone symbol (at the bottom, next to the space bar).
Speak your message. Remember to say full stop or exclamation mark at the end of each sentence.
Your verbal message will be automatically typed for you! Check the message doesn’t have any mistakes (it’s good, but does make the odd mistake) and press Send.
Either method – absolutely brilliant!
