SAFARI TIPS AND TRICKS
SERVICES IN SAFARI
Under the Safari menu, there are a variety of services that can help you and
TO USE ANY OF THE SERVICES IN SAFARI, YOU MUST FIRST
HIGHLIGHT A PASSAGE OF TEXT ON A WEBPAGE.
In order to transfer information from websites to your Hogbay Notebook,
simply highlight the text you’d like to keep and go to:
These notes are searchable so you can easily find all the sources having to do
with a particular topic by using the search feature on HogBay.
Safari can speak text on a webpage aloud. What a wonderful thing for your oral
learners. You will want to have them use earphones, though! Highlight a passage
of text on a webpage and go to:
SAFARI>SPEECH>START SPEAKING TEXT.
Safari will start reading the text aloud. You can even change the voice! To stop
the text from being read aloud, select STOP SPEAKING TEXT.
Safari also has a feature that allows you to take a large portion of text and
summarize it. Go to:
SAFARI>SERVICES>SUMMARIZE. The text will appear in a summary
box. To make the summary shorter, drag the slider to the left.
