Here are some recommendations for apps that might help new iPhone users learn the iPhone gestures.
These are four apps I think are helpful in learning the VoiceOver gestures of the iPhone. They are all free, I think.
The Blindfold Bop one is free, however limited in how many times you can use it, so I purchased it for about $6 which allows me unlimited use of the app.
Below I have provided a link to the entire list of iFocus MP3 files in my Dropbox folder. It is a Zipped file that you can download to your computer.
- VO Starter, is an app that is text based and explains the VO gestures well in a well organized fashion. It’s a great manual for learning what’s possible.
- Blindfold Bop, is a game based tutorial that gets you to practice gestures with ever increasing speeds and complexity.
- VO Tutorial, is an app that works the user through several games requiring that gestures be performed in order to work through the game. It’s great for beginners.
- VO Lab, I found this one less helpful as it gets the user to turn off VO and use a self-voicing voice. It might be too confusing for beginners. I don’t like it, and it’s possible that others will learn from it so I included it.
Of course, VO Calendar is a great way to use the Calendar with an accessible and usable overlay on the native on board Calendar app.
