Hi Matt,

 

If the keyboard is an issue for you with IOS, you may want to have a look at an 
app named Fleksey which simulates a keyboard for a touch typest.  You don’t 
need to see the screen in order to use this, you just need to be a touch 
typest; you type anywhere on the screen, and it analyzes the movements of your 
fingers to determine what pattern you would have been typing on a standard 
keyboard.

 

Below is a link to one review of Fleksey, I’m sure if you Google it you’ll find 
many more from a blind users point of view:

Well, don’t know what the suite of app cost but if they make a W8 phone with a 
keyboard I might just jump all over this! It not a full solution but it is a 
start!

Thought some of you might be interested, sounds like limited access though.

Terrassa, Spain, Microsoft enlists the help of Code Factory for mobile

Code Factory, developers of software solutions for the blind and the visually

designed to make Windows Phone easier to see, hear, and use, is now available 
for Windows Phone 8 to address the needs of our blind and visually impaired
