      the cheat sheets for operating VoiceOver.


How braille displays work

How Braille Displays Work:

  • VoiceOver and Braille work together:

    • VoiceOver must be on for the braille display to work!

    • If an app won’t work with VoiceOver, the braille display won’t work either

    • Braille chord commands are equivalent to hand gestures used with VoiceOver

    • Can mute VoiceOver and use only braille for navigation/reading

      To pair a braille display, go to the Settingsicon, then select General, Accessibility, VoiceOver, and Braille. When you see your braille display under Choose a Braille Device, select your device. Enter the code 1234 on your iOS Device* (not the refreshable braille display) to complete the pairing process. This only needs to be done the first time you use the braille display.

      To view all refreshable braille displays that work with iOS devices go to: http://www.apple.com/accessibility/iphone/braille-display.html

      *Most displays use the code 1234


How bluetooth keyboards work

How Bluetooth Keyboards Work:

  • Use ctrl and alt together to activate VoiceOver commands:

    • VoiceOver key commands are equivalent to hand gestures used with VoiceOver

    • Special functions keys act as “hot keys” to volume, music controls, home, search, etc.

      To pair a Bluetooth keyboard, go to the Settingsicon, then select General, and Bluetooth. Enter the PIN numberon your iOS Device (see keyboard instructions for PIN number) to complete the pairing process. This only needs to be done the first time you use the keyboard.
