> iOS technology is a game changer. School districts across the country are purchasing and deploying iPads to students across grade levels - even integrating them into the classroom curriculum. But how many teachers and parents are ready to ensure that their blind students have equal access to all the iPad has to offer?
>  
> iOS Success, written by a blind user and iPad instructor, gives step-by-step instructions for every pertinent accessibility feature the iPad has to offer - including getting acquainted with VoiceOver and Zoom, setting accessibility options, pairing external devices such as keyboards and refreshable braille displays, setting up Apple accounts to buy apps like iBooks, using the Cloud and Dropbox, and much, much more. The last chapter includes tips from blind students who use their iPads daily and one very committed parent who is mastering iOS technology alongside his blind sons.
>  
> The book assumes the reader has never used an iPad, and it's written in plain English. Although it is geared to parents and teachers, there is plenty of useful advice for blind users as well. What are you waiting for? Join the iOS revolution!  
> 
> Order the book - and read the table of contents.
