[access-uk] Re: iPod Touch

Hi Larry.
Oh, I see. So VoiceOver speaks what you're about to type in the password, but doesn't speak what is actually entered. Nice one. Thanks for the help. So I should be ok then really.
Take care.

When you entering your password  you will need to slide your finger across
the qwerty keyboard and then stop on the relevant character, so you will
hear the character you are about to type and there should be no problems
entering your password!

Remember you have Voice Over turned on and the aim of it is to tell you what
key you are about to type amongst other things.

Hi Jackie.
Actually I was thinking this could be interesting. How on earth can new
users enter a password and get it right. I mean I would be able to do it
once I am confident enough in typing but yes I do agree about someone
helping me with that, since all I will hear are clicks, which is fair
enough. Is there perhaps a way of learning to type on the touch? I like the
touch typing method but I would still need to practice it. I am also
thinking of getting an Apple wireless keyboard. How much am I expected to
pay for one of these? I jut think it will speed up my typing that is all.
Many thanks.
Take care.

My first recommendation would be to get your broadband working with
the iPod Touch so you can access the App Store etc.  You need to go
into the settings menu.  Perhaps a sighted person could help you if
you are not confident in typing in the security key yourself.  But
once you have WiFi enabled, you really will benefit from its features.

Subject: [access-uk] iPod Touch

Hello all.
Please welcome me to the world of the iPod community. I shall be
receiving an iPod Touch 32 GB 4th generation within the next few days
to a week. How it started is thanks to a few demonstrations over Skype
through a friend, I appear to fully understand how the touch screen
works, as well as the basic gestures. I am also impressed by what
VoiceOver can offer.
So yes, very much looking forward to it despite the learning curve.
So all tips and tricks are very welcome indeed!
Take care.
