Wow Claire, thanks.  I didn't know about that one.  I'll investigate.

All the best

Hi Clive, I find myself using a skill called My workouts quite a lot, purely
because it is fully audio based and it means that I can have custom made
workouts in the comfort of my home and still keep fit, it asks for some
details about your fitness level, then based on the details you give it
creates a 20 minute workout, then at the end of each workouts she asks
whether you found the workout too hard, too easy, or just right. If you need
a description of an exercise you say help and she gives a very detailed
description of how you do the exercise.   Would you be interested in that at
all?

Thanks, Claire Sent from my Braillenote touch Android tablet On 9 Mar 2018
