This Tuesday at 7:30 PM: Braille on iOS, Part 1

Following our brief introduction to Braille on iOS last year, we’re delighted this year to be joined by Scott Davert, one of the most well-known authorities on the topic, to explore this winning combination in more detail. Scott is the Coordinator at the Technology, Research and Innovation Center, part of the Helen Keller National Center for DeafBlind Youths and Adults, and serves on the editorial team at AppleVis.

In a series of three Masterclasses, he will discuss and demonstrate how to make the most of using your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with a braille display, from basic exploration to text editing, web browsing and much more.

In the first Masterclass, coming up this Tuesday at 7:30 PM, we will cover:

  • Supported braille displays and how to connect them
  • Braille settings in Voiceover
  • Exploring the home screen
  • Some useful braille display commands

The second Masterclass will take place on Tuesday 15 February, and the final one on Tuesday 1 March.
