Hi Gordon.

I hardly ever read documents on my IPhone, preferring to always use my laptop 
for tasks like that, but as far as I know, you cant use the IPhone like you 
would a computer for reading documents, hence the preference.  All I can offer 
re advice is to use two gestures, the two finger swipe up which will read from 
the top of the document to the current position, and the two finger swipe down, 
which will read from the current position to the bottom of the document.  You 
can I think start and stop the narration by double tapping with two fingers 
like you would answer or end a call, play or pause music in the IPod etc., but 
this is a patchy area for me as I haven’t really looked in to it in much 
detail.  Sorry I cant be of further help here.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi Ibrahim
Another question then.  I’ve asked it in one form or another on the list, but 
I’m looking for other’s experiences.
I really want to use my Freedom keyboard with text files on the Iphone. 
Although it works after a fashion I’m wanting it to read lines of text when 
using the up and down arrow keys. At present it only reads letters or words.
I’ve tried a number of packages, e.g. Open Office, Trunk etc. but like the 
Iphone Notes they do not seem to read lines.
1. Is this a Voice Over problem – can it be set to read lines?
2. Do you, or anyone else using a portable keyboard, know of any packages which 
will allow line reading when using the up and down arrows for navigation?
Thanks.
Gordon

Thanks Ibrahim
It worked. What I hadn’t grasped was that when I double tapped with one finger, 
that I should keep my finger on the icon after the second tap.
Thanks again.

Hi Gordon.

No, when you double tap the phone icon, hold your finger on the screen after 
the second tap.  You’ll hear the voice over pass-through sound, three blips in 
ascending pitch followed by “moving phone” if you’ve done it correctly.  Then 
slowly move your finger down the screen to the left hand corner before letting 
go.  Your finger must be on the screen at all times while moving an 
application, so just to reiterate, once you double tap, hold your finger on the 
screen on the second tap as releasing it will open the app.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi Ibrahim
Thanks for your info. I seem to be missing a couple of things.
1. When I double tap on the found phone icon it opens the folder and gives me 
the usual phone stuff, e.g. recents etc. I can’t just double tap it without it 
opening.
2. At the bottom of the Dragon page in which it’s situated there’s no dock 
area. There is on every other page but not here. I can’t see where I would move 
it to even if I could.
Obviously I think I’m missing something but not sure what.
Thanks again.
Gordon

Hi Gordan.

You need to move the phone icon back to the dock area, that is to say the area 
at the bottom of every page of the IPhone.  Firstly, find the phone link, the 
actual position isn’t important at the moment.  When you’ve found the phone 
app, double tap it until you hear “moving phone”.  With your finger on the 
screen, gently drag the phone app toward the bottom and left hand corner of the 
screen where you want it.  Voice Over should announce what item it is 
highlighted on, so listen carefully as the moment you let go of the screen, the 
phone app will be moved to the new position.  Do you actually have anything in 
the dock where the phone should be at the moment?

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi
I don’t know how I did it, but my ‘Phone’ icon (usually the left hand Icon on 
the bar at the bottom) has now arrived in my ‘Dragon’Folder.
The I-store and their technical help cannot find a way to get it back when in 
Voice over mode and being totally blind I can’t do it myself without voice over.
Does anyone know how to either move an icon from one folder to the main page 
and then to the bottom bar, or how to cut and paste it in edit mode to the 
correct place. I-phone technical help say there’s no way in voice over to do 
this, but I’m not sure that they fully know Voice over and also I put it into 
the Dragon folder myself (although I don’t know how) There must be a way out.
Any thoughts anyone?
