Typing with iOS Braille Screen Input

A suspension bridge spans the logo with the acronym BVT in the middle. Beneath the bridge the words Blind Vet Tech appears. The bottom of the logo contains morse code reading Technology Association for Veterans with Visual Impairments.
In this Blind Vet Tech Quick Guides and Tutorials podcast, we demonstrate how to type using the Braille Screen Input, a Voice Over Rotor option. In earlier podcasts, we reviewed activating the Braille Screen Input and using Braille Screen Input on the Home Screen. This task requires one to preform the following actions:

  • In any text field, activate the Braille Screen Input with the Voice Over Rotor gesture
  • 3 Finger swipe left or right to enable contracted or uncontracted Braille
  • 3 Finger swipe up or down to lock orientation
  • Quick 3 finger tap of right hand and 3 finger tap of left hand to calibrate placement of your fingers while typing
  • 1 finger swipe right to add a space
  • 1 finger swipe up or down to see Siri word suggestions and 1 finger swipe right to add space
  • 2 finger swipe right to add new line
  • 2 finger swipe left to delete last word
  • Use the Voice Over Rotor gesture to exit the Braille Screen Input and navigate normally
  • We hope you enjoy this tutorial on typing with the Braille Screen Input. This really is a nice way to type on your iPhone or iPad.
