Brian wants to know if there's an easy way to search for things on his Mac. Leo says that CMD + spacebar will bring up spotlight search. He can just start typing and he'll find what he needs right away.
Emilio is blind and uses Evernote to save his notebook and data. But recent changes have made it nearly impossible to use with his screen reading program. Leo says that Evernote's changes are very concerning and they've been ignoring accessibility since the very beginning.
Bob would like to create a master drive that he can put in a safe deposit box that has all his private information on it. Leo says that's a good idea, but he doesn't really have to go to that extreme. One option is Google Docs, which would be sharable to his attorney.
Kerry has a bunch of notes and documents filed and he wants to be able to scan them. What's the best option to create an online library so he can share what he has? Leo says he should get a good scanner that can do Optical Character Recognition (OCR). He can then put them up on a website, or through dropbox and share them.
Emilio is looking for a good file management utility that has good accessibility features, chiefly via speech. He wants to be able to sort and make documents that are easily searchable. Evernote doesn't do it. Leo says they should.
Paul would like to scan documents, organize them, and save them online. Leo says he can pick up a scanner and scan his documents. To organize them, Leo recommends using Evernote. He can scan directly to it, and then Evernote will categorize them automatically. Another option is Neat Receipts, a software utility that will work with his scanner to scan and organize receipts.
Colin wants to know about Evernote. Leo says that Evernote is an amazing app and it's free. He can buy a premium version, but it's not really necessary. It will allow him to sync all of his devices in the cloud. He can insert images, video, sound, and more. It's a great app. Lifehacker has some great tips on how to best use it.
Gary wants to know the difference between Evernote and DropBox. Leo says that DropBox is a great cloud-based file storage solution, and is great for photo backup as well. It's like a suitcase in the cloud that users can toss stuff into. Evernote syncs notes which could include photos and videos. Evernote has more structure, contains notes, to do lists, etc, and it's all searchable. They're complimentary, to be sure, but they are different.
