KNFB Reader Online School – Sharing Files from KNFB Reader

Welcome to the KNFB Reader online
school. I’m James Gashel. Grab a seat; grab your reader; let’s get started. In
this lesson, we’re going to learn how to share files from KNFB Reader. Now, you can
save files, and we have saved — an example of saving a file would have been a file
that in another lesson, we created a multi-page document and we saved that
document to KNFB Reader — so let’s learn how to share that file with somebody
else. So first we’ll launch KNFB Reader. In order to share a file, you need to go
to the file explorer, because anything that’s been saved will be found in the
file explorer. So again I’m going to double tap in the upper left-hand corner of the
screen. File explorer. Double tap. And here’s the directory. Let’s see. (KNFB Reader) Diabetic Book Article, contains three pages, created 09 18 2015 14:52 p.m. (James) Alright, that’s the file that we actually did
save in a previous lesson. And so now, in order to share that file, we have to
place file explorer in the edit mode. I’m going to find edit. Okay. Edit was one swipe
with a finger — one finger swipe — to the left above the file name list. So I’m
going to double tap on edit. Done, but I’m not done yet. I’m going to share this file with somebody.
So. I can’t do it yet. I have to select the file, but share is an option. It said
“dimmed,” meaning I haven’t selected any file below to do. So I need to find the
diabetic book. Let’s see. (KNFB Reader) Diabetic Book Article, contains three pages created. (James) Alright, double tap. Now we’ve
selected the diabetic article, and now share doesn’t say “dimmed” anymore. It says I can actually share. So I’m going to double tap on share. Okay, so I’ve chosen
to share, and now I have a few options that the type of file I can share. KNFB file is really the full file. It’s the picture that is the underlying
picture of the document, so if somebody gets this file they’ll get the picture
of the document, and they’ll also get various forms of the text file, but you may not want to
share that whole file, so you have other options. [KNFB Reader scrolling through options] Plain text file, an RTF version of the
text file. Formatted text file, the HTML version. TXT. So really the options
are the TXT version, the RTF version, or the HTML version. You choose. Doesn’t matter to me, but, you know, you might want to share the TXT version, let’s
say, rather than sharing the whole picture and everything, which
doesn’t make a whole lot of sense here. Let’s decide to share the TXT version. I
double tap on the text version. Okay, so I could share it via Airdrop, meaning if somebody that I
am connected with on my iOS device were to be close by I could immediately have
it transferred to their device. I could mail it to a person. I could
share it to my notes file. I could tweet about it, actually put it out on a Twitter,
Twitter tweet I guess is what you call it. I could put it on Facebook. I could do
other things with it. I could open in, and let’s go to open in because that’ll show us
some interesting places. (KNFB Reader) Airdrop recipient. Airdrop. Notes button. Twitter button. Facebook. Copy to pages button. Copy to blind square button. Copy to VoxDox button. Copy to Access Note button. Copy to Prismo button. Copy to Nebulous button. Copy to Dropbox button. Copy to Drive button. More button. (James) So you can see, I can copy
this file to lots of different apps, and these are only apps that I happen to have
on this device. I could actually copy it to other things that I may not have on
this device, so I’d have to have installed those apps first. But Dropbox
is a good, pretty universal example of copying to something. So let me go to copy to Dropbox. Copy to Dropbox. I’m going to double tap on that. (KNFB Reader) Selected. Copy to. Choose a different folder. Save to Dropbox. Cancel button. (James) And I’m already set up to save to Dropbox. (KNFB Reader) Save to Dropbox. Save button. File heading. Diabetic Book Article text. Text field. Save location heading. Dropbox. Choose a different folder. (James) So it can just go to the root
directory of my Dropbox. I could choose another folder in my Dropbox, but let’s just have it go to my root directory. Double tap on save. And it’s gone. So the
article is now both on my KNFB Reader and in my Dropbox. It’s just that simple
with KNFB Reader. That’s it for now, but please come back and see, and hear, some of our other lessons about the KNFB Reader here at our online school. KNFB Reader is brought to you through the joint efforts of the National Federation
