Subject: IPad Accessability from Robert Miller

Hi All,

I am sending an attachment today.  But probably will not do it again.  I just 
thought this offering was significant enough to send it as the original 
complete document.  Attached is a free guide to IPad accessability produced by 
Robert Miller.  Below are two links, the first is to a version of the book with 
graphics.  The second one has no graphics.  However, both are in pdf.  So  I 
converted the book  to make it easier for all to access.  If you wish a 
complete copy pasted into an email message for you, please me privately with 
the words "complete copy/" in the subject line.  I will then send it to you.

I found out about this awsome offering from Top Dot Enterprises's weekly 
newsletter "Top Tech Tidbits", May 2nd, 2013.

The links are in the next few lines.


Robert Miller at the Oklahoma School for the Blind has created a free iPad 
accessibility booklet 

designed to help teachers or parents teach their students basic iPad skills to 
surf with Safari, read books 

with iBooks, and learn text entry with Notes. Students can also use the booklet 
independently. The 

booklet has 7 parts covering mainstream navigation, VoiceOver, Zoom, Large 
Text, Inverted Colors, 

and Guided Access and three refreshable Braille displays. This version includes 


And this one does not: 


"When the Counselor comes, the Spirit of truth"

Scripture: John 15:26-16:4 

26 But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even 
the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me; 
27 and you also are witnesses, because you have been with me from the 
beginning. (John 16) 1 I have said all this to you to keep you from falling 
away. 2 They will put you out of the synagogues; indeed, the hour is coming 
when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. 3 And they 
will do this because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But I have said 
these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told 
you of them. I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I 
was with you. 

Meditation: Where do you find help and support when you most need it? True 
friendship is strengthened in adversity. Jesus offers his disciples the best 
and truest of friends. Who is this promised friend? Jesus calls the Holy Spirit 
our Counselor and Advocate (also translated Paraclete or Helper). Counselor is 
a legal term for the one who will defend someone against an adversary and who 
guides that person during the ordeal of trial. The Holy Spirit is our Advocate 
and Helper who brings us safely through the challenges and adversities we must 
face in this life. As Jesus approaches the hour he was to be glorified - 
through his death on the cross and his resurrection - he revealed more fully to 
his disciples the person and role of the Holy Spirit. 

What does Jesus tell us about the Holy Spirit? First, the Holy Spirit is 
inseparably one with the Father and the Son. It is the Holy Spirit who gives 
life - the very life of God - and who kindles faith in hearts receptive to 
God's word. The Spirit makes it possible for us to know God personally. He 
gives us experiential knowledge of God as our Father. The Spirit witnesses to 
our spirit that the Father has indeed sent his Son into the world to redeem it 
and has raised his Son Jesus from the dead and has seated him at his right hand 
in glory and power. The Holy Spirit reveals to us the knowledge, wisdom and 
plan of God for the ages and the Spirit enables us to see with the "eyes of 
faith" what the Father and the Son are doing. Through the gift and working of 
the Holy Spirit we become witnesses to the great work of God in Christ Jesus. 
Jesus warned his disciples that they could expect persecution just as Jesus was 
opposed and treated with hostility. We have been given the Holy Spirit to help 
us live as disciples of Jesus Christ. The Spirit gives us courage and 
perseverance when we meet adversities and challenges. Do you pray for the Holy 
Spirit to strengthen you in faith, hope and love and to give you courage and 
perseverance with hope when you meet adversities and challenges? 

"O merciful God, fill our hearts, we pray, with the graces of your Holy Spirit; 
with love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, humility 
and self-control. Teach us to love those who hate us; to pray for those who 
despitefully use us; that we may be the children of your love, our Father, who 
makes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and 
on the unjust. In adversity grant us grace to be patient; in prosperity keep us 
humble; may we guard the door of our lips; may we lightly esteem the pleasures 
of this world, and thirst after heavenly things; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord."  (Prayer of Anselm, 1033-1109) 

Psalm 149:1-6a,9b 

1 Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of 
the faithful!
2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker, let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King!
3 Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with timbrel and 
4 For the LORD takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with victory.
5 Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches.
6a Let the high praises of God be in their throats. 

9b This is glory for all his faithful ones.  Praise the LORD!
