I hope someone can help me I have a few questions about iPad.
I am physically disabled and have very limited use of my hands and I use a mouthstick and voice activated Dragon speech .
What I want to know is, 1. Do I have to use the ID fingerprint thing? I would really
rather not use it. 2. What type of stylus would I be able to use with the iPad tablet?
As of now I have a really long homemade mouthstick which is made out of wood and has a hard tip I'm hoping this is going to work.
My final question is, does it support the Dragon software
or have something like it I can use on the tablet?

Thank you,
Lynn B

I think I'd use Siri instead.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
