Chip, I have a hand out I did for a seminar at one of the FCB conventions.
It mainly focuses on the gestures for Voice Over.  I have print and braille
copies, I should also be able to find the txt file if you are interested.

Thanks ...

I would appreciate any recommendations for books designed to teach someone
who is blind how to use the IPhone.  I believe the APH has some for sale,
but wanted to hear from people who bought some or read reviews, as to what
was great, and what should be skipped

Thanks.

Chip

I never have bought a smart phone yet, but I am pretty sure I'm going to go
get an IPhone 6+, and probably the KNFB reader will be one of the first aps
I get.

I've been reading several reviews from people over the past few days and
everyone's loving it so far.
Unfortunately for me it cannot run on the 4s.

Well, I got it and it is the best 100 bucks I have ever spent and the most I
have ever spent on app ! I have did a podcast on it and it is a real life
podcast that has not been edited so it is what it is.  I did not want to
edit it as I wanted people to know exactly what the app could do! So see
link below and pass it along if you wish to . Enjoy!
It is on my drop box site.

VoiceOver Gestures

When VoiceOver is turned on, it changes the gestures you use to control your
device, so that you can hear descriptions without activating buttons. These
VoiceOver gestures let you move around the screen and control the individual
elements that you select. Some
VoiceOver gestures use two, three, or four fingers to tap or flick. For best
results when
using more than one finger, relax and let your fingers touch the screen with
some space between them.

There are many ways to enter VoiceOver gestures. For example, you can
two-finger tap by using either two fingers on one hand, or one finger on
each hand. You can also use
your thumbs. Try different techniques to discover what works best for you.

If your gestures don't work, try quicker movements, especially for
double-tapping and
flicking gestures. To flick, try quickly brushing the screen with your
finger or fingers.

Practice gestures: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > VoiceOver >
Practice
Gestures, then tap the Practice VoiceOver Gestures button. Practice the
gestures
described in "VoiceOver Settings," below. When you finish practicing, tap
Done.

Make single-finger flicking gestures quickly, to distinguish them from
dragging gestures.

Navigate and Read

single-finger tap: Speak item.

single-finger flick right or left: Select the next or previous item.

single-finger flick up or down: The effect varies depending on the Rotor
Control setting.

two-finger tap: Stop speaking the current item.

two-finger flick up: Read all, from the top of the screen.

two-finger flick down: Read all, from the current position.

three-finger flick up or down: Scroll one page at a time.

three-finger flick right or left: Go to the next or previous page (for
example, on the Home screen or in Safari).

three-finger tap: Speak the scroll status (which page or rows are visible).

four-finger flick up or down: Go to the first or last element on a page.

four-finger flick right or left: Go to the next or previous section (for
example, on a web page).

Select and Activate

single-finger double-tap Activate selected item or
touch an item with one finger, tap the screen with another finger.

single-finger double tap and hold (1 second)  Use a standard gesture.
The double-tap and hold gesture tells the device to interpret the subsequent
gesture as standard. For example, you can double-tap and hold, and then
without lifting your finger, drag your finger to slide a switch. You can use
standard gestures when VoiceOver is turned on, by double-tapping and holding
your finger on the screen. A series of tones indicates that normal gestures
are in force. They remain in effect until you lift your finger, then
VoiceOver gestures resume.

two-finger double tap: Play or pause in iPod, YouTube, or Photos. Start or
stop the stopwatch.

three-finger double tap: Mute or unmute VoiceOver.

three-finger triple tap: Turn the display on or off.

Rotor Control

The rotor is a virtual control that acts like a physical dial when VoiceOver
is turned
on. Use the rotor to change VoiceOver settings and to access additional
commands and features.

Operate the rotor: Rotate two fingers on the  screen to "turn" the dial and
choose items on the rotor. Flick up and down to use the selected item.

The effect of the rotor depends on what you're doing. For example, if you're
reading text in an email, you can use the rotor to switch between hearing
text spoken word-by-word, character-by-character, or line-by-line when you
flick up or down. When you browse a webpage, use the rotor to choose whether
you hear text word-by-word or character-by-character, hear just the headers,
hear just the links (all of them, visited links, or links not yet visited),
hear form elements, or hear descriptions of images.
You can use the rotor setting to hear all of the text, or to jump from one
element of
a certain type (such as headers or links.

Reading text

Select and hear text by:
Character, word or line.

Adjust a slider: With one finger, flick up to increase the setting or down
to decrease the setting. VoiceOver speaks the setting as you adjust it.

Scroll a list or area of the screen: Flick up or down with three fingers.
Flick down to page down, or flick up to page up. When paging through a list,
VoiceOver speaks the range of items displayed (for example, "showing rows 5
through 10").

Scroll continuously through a list: Double-tap and hold. When you hear a
series of tones, you can move your finger up or down to scroll the list.
Continuous scrolling stops when you lift your finger.


Use an index: Some lists have an alphabetical index along the right side.
The index can't be selected by flicking between elements; you must tap the
index to select it. With the index selected, flick up or down to move along
the index. You can also double-tap, then slide your finger up or down.

Rearrange the Home screen: On the Home screen, select the icon you want to
move. Double-tap and hold, then drag the icon. VoiceOver speaks the row and
column position as you drag the icon. Release the icon when it's in the
location you want. You can drag additional icons. Drag an item to the left
or right edge of the screen to move it to a different page of the Home
screen. When you finish rearranging the icons, press
the Home button.

Mute VoiceOver
Double-tap with three fingers. Double-tap with three fingers again to turn
speaking back on.

Stop speaking an item
Tap once with two fingers. Tap again with two fingers to resume speaking.
Speaking automatically resumes when you
select another item.

Turn off the display while you use VoiceOver Triple-tap with three fingers.
Repeat to turn the display
on again.

Speak the entire screen from
the top Flick up with two fingers.

Speak from the current item to the bottom of screen Flick down with two
fingers.

You can hear status information by tapping the status bar at the top of the
screen.
This includes the time, battery life, Wi-Fi signal strength, and more.

Entering and Editing Text

When you select a text field with VoiceOver, you can use the onscreen
keyboard to enter text. You can use the editing features to cut, copy, or
paste in the text field.

The editing features work only
in editable text fields.

Enter text:

1 Use VoiceOver to select an editable text field, then double-tap to
display the insertion point and bring up the onscreen keyboard. If the field
already contains text, the insertion point is placed at the beginning or at
the end of the text. Double-tap again
to place the insertion point at the opposite end. VoiceOver tells you the
position of the insertion point.

The insertion point and onscreen keyboard may appear automatically when you
select a text field. VoiceOver announces when you're in editing mode based
on the rotor setting.

2 To type, do one of the following:
"Touch-type" by dragging your finger to select a key, then lifting your
finger to
enter the character.
"Standard-type" by flicking left or right to select a key on the keyboard,
then
double-tapping to enter the character.
Enter a character by dragging your finger around the keyboard to select a
key, and while holding the key with one finger, tapping the screen with
another finger.
VoiceOver speaks the key when it's selected, and again when it's entered.

Enter an accented character: Double-tap and hold, until you hear a sound
indicating
that the alternate characters have appeared, then drag left or right to
select and hear
the choices. Release your finger to enter the current selection.

Move the insertion point: Flick up or down to move the insertion point
forward or
backward in the text. VoiceOver makes a sound when the insertion point
moves, and speaks the character that the insertion point moved across. Use
the rotor to choose whether you want to move the insertion point by
characters, words, or lines.

Select text: Use the rotor to choose edit. Flick up or down to choose
between the Select and Select All functions, then double-tap. If you chose
Select, the word closest
to the insertion point is selected when you double-tap. If you chose Select
All, all the text is selected.
Pinch to increase or decrease the selection.

Cut, copy, or paste: Make sure the rotor is set to edit. With text selected,
flick up or
down to choose Cut, Copy, or Paste, then double-tap.

Undo: Shake the unit or flick left or right to choose the action to undo,
then double-tap.

Change the pitch: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > VoiceOver,
then tap the
Use Pitch Change button. Then, when you delete a letter, it's spoken with a
lower pitch.

Speak keys phonetically: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility >
VoiceOver,
then tap the Use Phonetics button. Then, when you pause on a key, VoiceOver
speaks
the letter of that key phonetically (for example, alpha for a, bravo for b,
charlie for c, and so on).
