Using Voice Over Braille Screen Input to Open Apps

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 open an app using the Braille Screen Input located in the Voice Over’s Rotor screen. You will have to be on the Home Screen to complete this action and have enabled Braille Screen Input from the Voice Over Rotor’s setting. Review this podcast to enable Braille Screen Input from the Voice Over Rotor settings screen. This task requires one to preform the following actions:

  • While on your home screen with Voice Over activated, preform the Rotor gesture to bring up Braille Screen Input.
  • Start typing the first letter)s) of the app you wish to open.
  • A one finger swipe up or down moves you up and down the list, while a two finger swipe right opens the app.

We hope you enjoy this tutorial on searching for and opening apps on your iPhone and iPad with the Braille Screen Input located in the Voice Over Rotor while on your home screen.
