I’m a huge fan of smart phones and tablets as the ideal gateway for home healthcare apps, but I always wondered how a blind person could use an iPhone since there are no tactile buttons.
I was delighted to find the Assistive Technologies Blog, a publication of the Virginia Department of Education’s Training and Technical Assistance Center (T/TAC) at VCU. It had a pointer to an interesting book, “Getting Started with the iPhone: An Introduction for Blind Users.” This book is available in paper, electronic Braille, text or DAISY for $18.00. Another Braille book of interest is “Social Networking and You: Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin for Blind Users.”
