Join CBT this week as they talk about their favourite Cool Picks.
In this podcast, James Oates takes a look at the new accessibility settings in iOS 11 Beta. Join us as he uncovers some exciting new features for VoiceOver and braille users.
The CBT team have told you about some of the exciting new features coming to your iPhone or iPad in iOS 11, but there’s one “feature” that many users are going to be upset about: Some of your apps, possibly including apps you use every day, will stop working.
If you have a braille display with a Perkins style keyboard, you can control your iOS device by entering certain key combinations. I will include a list of these braille keyboard commands. While some of them will work with iOS 10 as well, iOS 11 will allow you to assign keyboard commands where none currently exist, and also change existing keyboard commands.
To assign a keyboard command where none exists, or change an existing keyboard command, go to Settings\General\Accessibility\VoiceOver\Braille.
From there, select more info next to the braille display that you have paired to your device, and then select Braille Commands. Now you will see a list of buttons like Braille, Device, Interaction, Keyboard, ETC. Each one has a list of braille commands that you can see when you click on one. I have included the complete list below; to make it easier to find the command you are looking for.
