LookTel VoiceOver Tutorial
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This app provides a basic introduction to VoiceOver and the gestures used throughout iOS. Persons new to VoiceOver and IOS are guided through the tutorial with a pleasant mix of facts and entertainment. Once the app is started with VoiceOver running, the text and elementary games provide a practice of the basic gestures used with VoiceOver and IOS. As each new gesture is introduced, it is accompanied by an interactive practice screen. The core basics are covered:
- tap, double-tap, and split-tap gestures
- flick right and flick left
- the rotor gesture
- the up and down flick.
- two-finger single tap
- two-finger flick up and down
- double-tap and hold
- three finger flick up, down, left and right
A VoiceOver Basketball, and a VoiceOver Safe game provide opportunities to practice these core gestures. An explanation of the use each gesture has in IOS is provided, along with a summary of all the gestures introduced in this tutorial.
This app may be used independently by anyone new to VoiceOver and IOS, or within a class, seminar, or introductory instructional setting.
What's New in Version 4.0
New Chapters 3&4 added - tutorials about the use of the phone.
This app provides a fun and easy way to learn VO gestures. Lesson 1 games are entertaining and encourage further exploration. The adventure in Lesson 2 however, stops responding to gestures after the first couple of actions. This leaves users feeling frustrated and questioning whether they are performing the gestures correctly. Please fix!!! This could be a 5 star app!
Good start but needs an update
Useful tool, however at the time of this review it appears the "games" don't work with at least iOS 9.3.1
