Left-Handed and Proud

Left Handers DayWe are so excited about this year's Left-Handers' Day on August 13! We've been gearing up for it this year with a brand new website (coming very soon), and we would love you to be involved, spreading the word online to everyone you know about how proud you are of being left handed. You'll probably discover lots of new left-handed friends you never knew you had!

Here are some of the ways you'll be able to get involved:

  • Change your profile picture on twitter or Facebook to one of our special ones for Left-Handers Day.
  • Share our fun left-handed quotes online.
  • Use the hashtag #lefthandersday on twitter and Facebook – let's see if we can get it trending!
  • Download and print out our posters to decorate your home or office.

Left Handers' Day on August 13th is an unmissable opportunity to raise the profile of left-handers all over the world, and remind everyone how proud we are of our differences.

Watch out for our next newsletter in early August for all the details of how you can join in and leave us a comment now with any ideas you have for sharing Left Handers Day

New format for our newsletter

More than 50% of the Club Members who receive our newsletter now view it using a mobile device – their smartphone or tablet.   Our previous format was designed to be viewed on a desktop computer and was very difficult to see on a phone screen so we have completely changed things and moved to a “responsive” design that should work really well on both large and small screens, with the layout adapting to give the best fit and make it all readable and clickable!

We would be very interested to know if it is not working well for, so if you have any problems reading this newsletter on your device pleaseuse the link below to leave a comment on the online version of this article.   Let us know the type of device you are using and what problem you had and we will see if we can fix it.

(We are currently working on a major redevelopment of our Anything Left Handed website to make both the shop and all of our information pages responsive as well and that should be ready in September so please bear with us).

Notability App with left-handed mode

Notability App has a Left-Handed Mode

We were very impressed to see that the Notability app from Ginger Labs includes a left-handed mode that changes the way the “palm rest” works. This feature allows you to drag up an area at the bottom of the screen where you can rest your palm while making a handwritten note to stop your hand making unwanted marks on the screen. In left-handed mode, you can drag the palm rest down from the top of the screen instead and the toolbars also move from top the to the bottom of the screen. This is useful if you write left-handed with a “hook style” and need to rest your palm above your writing line.

Has anyone else noticed any other new apps or technologies out there that take us lefties into consideration?

    I posted to Facebook your piece regarding Left-handers Day, prefaced with a few statements from moi. I always like to squeeze in enlightening information for the general public when the opportunity and venue present themselves.

    I look forward to your new format!
