LookTell are a company who make various extremely useful Aps for Blind and visually impared people, such as a money recognizer or an ap for identifying common household products. Their Voiceover tutorial is something equally helpful, a step by step introduction to Voiceover, the in built screen reader of devices running Ios.
The Ap will take people through all the common Voiceover gestures, double taps, split taps, three finger swipes, The Rotor etc, in a comprehensive and entertaining way. Part of the entertainment fctor is also provided by a number of engaging games employing the Vo gestures, from using flicks up and down to dribble a basket ball, to using taps and three finger to traverse an old and dusty library in search of an ancient book of magic. Each tutorial also comes with a practice screen so you can practice the gestures you've learnt.
The Aplication is entirely free, which makes it a great way to get used to the rather different process of using a touch screen operated screen reading program.
To download the lookTel Voiceover tutorial, flick through the home screen until you find the Ap store, double tap on that. Then, at the bottom right corner, tap search. Tap the top left to bring up the search text field and start typing in the name of the Ap letter by letter. When you have enough, flick right from the top and find the "lookTel voiceover tutorial" then hit the "free" button and enter your Apple id and password to download.
The tutorial will then take over, speaking all appropriate text directly with Vo.
As with many Iphone Aps, the LookTel tutorial has a page on the Applevis site which can be and also a podcast by applevis user AnonyMouse which can be Hear here
If your just starting out with Voiceover, or indeed if you just want a brushup on some of the less obvious functions, this is a great way to learn.
