Type onscreen braille using VoiceOver on iPod touch
If you turn on Braille Screen Input, you can use your fingers to enter six-dot braille or contracted braille directly on the iPod touch screen.
Enter braille on the screen
Enter braille with iPod touch lying flat in front of you (tabletop mode), or hold iPod touch with the screen facing away so your fingers curl back to tap the screen (screen away mode).
Set the rotor to Braille Screen Input.
If you don’t see Braille Screen Input in the rotor, go to Settings > Accessibility > VoiceOver > Rotor, then select it from the list.
Enter braille characters by tapping the screen with one or several fingers at the same time.
You can also do any of the following:
Enter a space: Swipe right with one finger. (In screen away mode, swipe to your right.)
Delete the previous character: Swipe left with one finger.
Move to a new line: Swipe right with two fingers.
Cycle through spelling suggestions: Swipe up or down with one finger.
Enter a carriage return, or send a message (in Messages): Swipe up with three fingers.
Switch between six-dot braille and contracted braille: Swipe to the right with three fingers.
Turn braille contractions on or off: Swipe to the right with three fingers.
Translate immediately (when contractions are enabled): Swipe down with two fingers.
Switch to the next keyboard: Swipe up with two fingers.
To exit Braille Screen Input, do a two-finger scrub, or adjust the rotor to another setting.
Tip: To have iPod touch read dots aloud, tap and hold the dots, then when you hear the timer tones and announcement, release the dots.
Adjust entry dot positions
To move the entry dots to match your natural finger positions, tap and lift your right three fingers all at once to position dots 4, 5, and 6, followed immediately by your left three fingers for dots 1, 2, and 3.
Change Braille Screen Input settings
Go to Settings > Accessibility > VoiceOver > Braille > Braille Screen Input.
Do any of the following:
Set six-dot or contracted Braille as the default.
Reverse dot positions for six-dot and eight-dot Braille.
