I have an iPhone but as part of my work as an adaptive technology specialist
at Pacific training centre for the blind, I work with clients who do have
iPads and iPhones. The iPad and iPhone accomplish the same goal. That is,
the same gestures with Voiceover works, sending emails works, etc. Where
its different is in the size of the iPad, and also the iPad does not have a
phone in it.

One advantage to the iPad is that you can attach a near-full-size keyboard to it.

Hi,
Here are my questions.
1. How difficult is it to use the touch screen keyboard. Should I get a manual keyboard?
2. How do you access the VoiceOver app when you get the iPad? Would this be something a sighted person would have to help with?
3. Lastly, how much do you need to know about VoiceOver to use the iPad?
Thanks
Chris

How is this an advanatge over the iPhone? You can use a Bluetooth keyboard
with any iPad or iPhone device.

Also, is this an answer to the original poster's question "Could someone that
owns an apple iPad contact me please?"

We don't yet know what his questions are.


Regards,

Antony.

If you are on facebook here is a page that may help some though it says apps there are lots of questions about iphone and ipad!
https://m.facebook.com/groups/670108013021030?refid=46&sld=eyJzZWFyY2hfc2lkIjoiZjg0ZGUwNjZlZWE0ZjRhYWU2OTEzZjAxZjEzNTlhMzEiLCJxdWVyeSI6ImlQaG9uZSBhbmQgaVBhZCBBcHBzIGZvciB0aGUgQmxpbmQiLCJzZWFyY2hfdHlwZSI6IlNlYXJjaCIsInNlcXVlbmNlX2lkIjoxMTA3MDUzMDE4LCJwYWdlX251bWJlciI6MSwiZmlsdGVyX3R5cGUiOiJTZWFyY2giLCJlbnRfaWQiOjY3MDEwODAxMzAyMTAzMCwicG9zaXRpb24iOjAsInJlc3VsdF90eXBlIjo2OX0%3D
I have an Iphone bought in june and will answer these from my perspective!
1. How difficult is it to use the touch screen keyboard. Should I get a manual keyboard?
I don't find it very difficult to use the keyboard on my Iphone! seperate keyboard isn't necessary in my opinion!
2. How do you access the VoiceOver app when you get the iPad? Would this be something a sighted person would have to help with?
You will need help turning it on I believe though double check on that I thought I had read somewhere that it was possible without sight?
3. Lastly, how much do you need to know about VoiceOver to use the iPad?
Vouce over has a learning option so you can go in and play around with it though I will say I have not used it even once! it is reasonably easy to use!
Here is a site to check out as well!

Well I wouldn't unless you can see the screens are rather large is all.

Blind people are better with small screen devices.

Criss.

Firstly I think you can access the touch keyboard ok but you would probably want a full one for speed.

At least for now the home button hitting 3 times will toggle voice over you can also do that from itunes.

3.  I'd go to mosen.org and buy the actual books and use those.

The guy is blind and he writes this stuff.

I had one of his free books not a tutorial and his writing style is good so.

Chuckle I fear the ios 11 with its bugs for every user has not made people happy in the last few days. I'm really not sure why these big companies do not debug properly before the release things to an unsuspecting public.
It not as if they were short of cash, is it?
The old OS worked fine.

You’re right there Brian, hopefully with the just released update 11.0.1 within just a few days of the major 11 release should go some way of appeasing some 😃

 

Hopefully they should have debugged this one a little 😃
