1 Accessibe use of your iPad in the Classroom Presentation By: Donna Brostek Lee, Ph.D. Clinical Assistant Professor, University of Kentucky

2 Universal Accessibility: Turn on the following features by tapping the Settings icon, then selecting General, and Accessibility (also can be accessed through iTunes) VoiceOver Screen Reader (with support for braille displays) Zoom Magnification Large Text Invert Colors Speak Selection Speak Auto-Text Hearing (Mono Audio) Guided Access Physical & Motor Siri (only on iPad 3 and 4)

3 VoiceOver Practice Get your iOS VoiceOver Hand Gestures Cheat Sheet Out! 1. Navigation 2. Rotor 3. Typing 4. Editing Save yourself a headache: Turn on Triple-click home in Accessibility! Be aware of accidently turning on: Mute/Unmute (three finger double tap) Screen Curtain On/Off (three finger triple tap)

4 Teaching Strategies for VoiceOver: Lets think about... What is the best way to hold each device? How do you teach the layout of the screen? What are the best strategies for mastering hand gestures? Hand-Under-Hand Demonstrating on the person’s hand

5 How Braille Displays Work: VoiceOver and Braille work together: VoiceOver must be on for the braille display to work! If an app won’t work with VoiceOver, the braille display won’t work either Braille chord commands are equivalent to hand gestures used with VoiceOver Can mute VoiceOver and use only braille for navigation/reading To pair a braille display, go to the Settings icon, then select General, Accessibility, VoiceOver, and Braille. When you see your braille display under Choose a Braille Device, select your device. Enter the code 1234 on your iOS Device* (not the refreshable braille display) to complete the pairing process. This only needs to be done the first time you use the braille display. To view all refreshable braille displays that work with iOS devices go to: *Most displays use the code 1234

6 How Bluetooth Keyboards Work: Use ctrl and alt together to activate VoiceOver commands: VoiceOver key commands are equivalent to hand gestures used with VoiceOver Special functions keys act as “hot keys” to volume, music controls, home, search, etc. To pair a Bluetooth keyboard, go to the Settings icon, then select General, and Bluetooth. Enter the PIN number on your iOS Device (see keyboard instructions for PIN number) to complete the pairing process. This only needs to be done the first time you use the keyboard. See commands.php for a list of commands.http://axslab.com/articles/ios-voiceover-gestures-and-keyboard- commands.php

7 Perspectives on Apps: Blind: Apps are limited to those that work with VoiceOver VoiceOver take practice to master However, using a refreshable braille display opens options for books available in braille and allows for braille writing practice iPhone and iPad Touch are usually the best choices Low Vision: Most apps work with Zoom or Pinch Zoom is built-in Zoom is easy to master iPad tends to be a good choice due to screen size
