  13. 13
    Tap on it again it will turn back to gray, which turns it OFF
    .

  14. 14
    Tap on back arrow
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    I can tap on the Camera input
    .

    You also have the option to help Google improve Camera hint input, this allows Google to retain your images related to translation
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    If you have privacy concerns you may want to turn this OFF by tapping one time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    To be honest with you I leave all of these ON because I am not holding out signs and translating things that I really care if anyone sees, in fact, generally speaking, the only sign I might translate would be a road sign that I could not figure out myself and that has not happened yet
    .
    Let us press the back arrow. We will tap on Handwriting.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    In this section we are confirming that each of these settings is put together in a way that we are comfortable with and that we are not worried if it might be misused or kept by Google or anyone else
    .
    Handwriting is a little different because it does not actually keep the handwriting. When you are writing by hand as you can see in our other tutorial in these series of videos on how to use Google translate on your iPhone 6, you will see that each character you write will automatically jump back up to the top if the application thinks that you have entered a word, if you turn this OFF then you need to press the space bar, to confirm handwritten text, as a collective set of character. It is actually my preference to use it with the space bar provided you are not writing some crazy long manuscript or some Russian words with are 30 to 40 characters long.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    But if you writing in a language like Chinese you might find it much easier as some Chinese character mean one thing individually and they mean a completely different thing when they are together
    .
    So I like to turn this OFF.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Let us go back by tapping the Back arrow
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    We will tap on Speech input
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    This is an interesting thing here, you can block offensive words if this sort of things upsets you
    .
    You can choose different Dialect.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    There is a list of Dialect that you can choose, English input, Arabic input, Spanish input
    .
    For example, let us tap on Spanish input.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    You will find a long list of Spanish accents, which kind of Spanish
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Also, we can tap on English
    .
    There is the standard English Dialects, Indian English.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    You can choose the actual Dialects that you are working in
    .
    I am going to turn OFF Block offensive words.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    The reason I turned it OFF is not because I use offensive words or because I don't use offensive words, but rather I am interested in seeing how the program functions, how it works and at least in my native language I am not expecting to accidently say a bad word, and if I accidently say a bad word in a foreign language and I am then translating my text back into English before sending them on, or saying anything with them, I will see that bad word and I will say
    :
    wait a second I did not say that! So it is very important to learn that sometimes when a word in English might mean something rather pleasant it might mean something quite bad in another language. The word SURE in English means sure, yes, OK, i.e. 'I can do that sure', sometimes it can mean something bad, or not good too, i.e. 'like do you want to be punished?' and the teenager says: Sure in which case they will definitely get him punished. In Chinese however it is a bad word which most children refer to as number 2. So there are times where you will want to make sure that your translation does not have bad words in it if you turn OFF bad words you are never going to learn that stuff. Tap on the back arrow again.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    So this is how you set up the Security Settings on your phone, and it is important that you do this before you start doing a lot of translations, because the camera input option is going to retain your photos
    .
    We can now press the home button. This will take us back the home screen of our lovely iPhone 6.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    This concludes our tutorial on how to set up and use the Google Translate function specifically the Security Settings on your iPhone 6
    .
