This article looks very interesting, but I don't appear to have a personal
hotspot button in my settings, despite having the latest version of ios.



Best regards,
 
David.

Dongles are sort of ok!
Vodafone is just workable with jaws & NVDA !
3 is better & cheaper! 
However I was wondering if you've thought about tethering instead as an
alternative to buying yet another piece of kit with questionable
accessibility ?
It is far more simple to use, more accessible & if you know how much data
you want from your dongle, you can just buy an add on from your existing
carrier & save the hassle of even more admin & legal paperwork from yet
another entity? 
Besides, tethering might even turn out cheaper in the long run if you get a
sensible data add on :) 

I've written out instructions for tethering using an iPhone & iPad  on my
blog

Please let me know if i could be of more assistance !
