VoiceOver users. For more information about the accessibility features of iPod touch, go to www.apple.com/accessibility. Each accessibility feature can be turned on or off in the Accessibility settings on iPod touch. You can also turn accessibility features on or off in iTunes when iPod touch is connected to your computer.
Select the accessibility features that you want to use and click OK. VoiceOver VoiceOver describes aloud what appears onscreen, so that you can use iPod touch without seeing it. VoiceOver speaks in the language specified in International settings, which may be influenced by the Region Locale setting. Note: VoiceOver isn’t available in all languages.
Turn spoken hints on or off: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > VoiceOver, and tap the Speak Hints On/Off switch. Spoken hints are turned on by default. Set the VoiceOver speaking rate: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > VoiceOver, and adjust the Speaking Rate slider.
Here’s a summary of key VoiceOver gestures: Navigate and Read Tap: Speak item. • Flick right or left: Select the next or previous item. • Flick up or down: Depends on the Rotor Control setting. See “Rotor Control” on • page 142.
The effect of the rotor depends on what you’re doing. For example, if you’re reading text in an email you received, you can use the rotor to switch between hearing text spoken word-by-word or character-by-character when you flick up or down. If you’re browsing 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.
Using VoiceOver Select items on the screen: Drag your finger over the screen. VoiceOver identifies each element as you touch it. You can also move systematically from one element to the next by flicking left or right with a single finger. Elements are selected from left- to-right, top-to-bottom.
Mute VoiceOver Stop speaking an item Turn off the display while you use VoiceOver Speak entire screen from the top Speak from current item to bottom of screen Status information about iPod touch can be heard by touching the top of the screen. This can include the time, battery life, Wi-Fi signal strength, and more.
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 character or by word.
Note: You cannot use VoiceOver and Zoom at the same time. Zoom in or out: Double-tap the screen with three fingers. By default, the screen is magnified by 200 percent. If you manually change the magnification (by using the tap-and-drag gesture, described below), iPod touch automatically returns to that magnification when you zoom in by double-tapping with three fingers.
