…teh wood for the trees

can't see teh wood for the trees

You are probably very familiar with the full saying, “You can’t see the wood for the trees”, where you are so busy looking for the solution everywhere else that you are blind to the fact that it is right under your nose… like looking for your sun glasses and all the while they are on top of your head, or in your top pocket.

Well, I was looking everywhere for a magnifier App that could be used to zoom in on a piece of paper and lock on the page… so I could write on the line without the camera focusing on your hand or the pen.  I have spent hours searching , downloading ,and  at times buying Apps only to find out that it has been in my hand all this time…. built in on  my iPhone. If the magnifier was alive it may have bitten me on the nose.I am so excited about the journey of discovery. I would love to meet the clever person or team at Apple who created this awesome technology and left it in a treasure box so some unsuspecting visually impaired person would come across it and think it is a miracle sent from heaven!

Being a teacher at heart I now need to increase my skill on this function and then lay it out simply so that it can be taught to others looking for specific help with magnifiers.

….forget the trees, I have found the wood!
