  • Introductions of who we are job and experience Sue/Jen
  • Sue Talk about what we will do in each area.
  • Sue
  • Sue simple explanation and how they fit together
  • Sue AT is not just devices but rather services and customizations that can be done to equipment. For example, learning to use an agumentative communication device is AT. Low tech or high tech and no tech (compensatory technique such as a paper and pencil schedule or a thicker pencil is considered AT as well as a high tech voice recognition computer).
  • Sue Majority of these funding sources assist with DME (durable medical equipment) such as wheelchairs and house hold adaptations and not vocational or academic needs. It is important to know which organization will cover what type of adaptations. This is a simple list of options and more can be found on the MN STAR website.

  • Definition of Assistive Technology
    • Assistive Technology or AT is defined as products, devices or equipment, whether acquired commercially, modified or customized, that are used to maintain, increase or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities..."
    • Assistive Technology Act of 2004
    • iPods can be considered adaptive equipment because they assist individuals to complete tasks in other ways
  • iPod General Info
  • Types of iPods
    • Currently, there are four main iPod product lines: the iPod shuffle, the iPod Nano, the iPod classic and the iPod Touch. These different types of Ipods were designed to meet the needs of different types of users.
    • The iPod shuffle is the smallest iPod in the market in terms of size and storage capacity. It is also the most affordable iPod and meets the needs of the casual music listener who just needs to listen to music on the way to work, when jogging and other activities.
    • The iPod shuffle still packs in a lot of music with its 512MB and 1 GB memories. The iPod shuffle is considered as the entry-level model. It does not come with a screen.
    • The iPod Nano is also small but it has some fantastic features including higher storage capacity- 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. It holds in a lot of songs and is perfect for the music lover because it is not as expensive as the iPod Touch. The Ipod Nano is the mid-range model.
    • The iPod Classic is the original iPod launched in 2001. There have been six generations of the iPod classic so far. The iPod classic has a capacity of 80GB to 160GB.
    • The iPod Touch, the latest iPod product line to come out from Apple is a portable media player that has WiFi capabilities. It is currently the top-of-the-line model with a graphical user interface.

  • What is an iPod
    • iPod touch lets you enjoy everything you love about an iPod, and then some. Watch your movies and TV shows on a brilliant 3.5-inch display. Use the revolutionary Multi-Touch interface to flick through your music in Cover Flow. And anytime you’re itching for more entertainment, just tap iTunes to browse and buy on the fly.

  • Accessibility Features
    • VoiceOver (English and 21 other languages)
    • Voice Control
    • Zoom
    • White on Black
    • Triple Click Home
    • Speak Auto Text
    • Giant Fonts for mail messages
  • VoiceOver Gestures
    • • Tap: Speak item.
    • • Flick right or left: Select the next or previous item.
    • • Flick up or down: Depends on the Rotor Control setting. See “Rotor Control”
    • • Two-finger tap: Stop speaking the current item.
    • • Two-finger flick up: Read all from top of screen.
    • • Two-finger flick down: Read all from current position.
    • • Three-finger flick up or down: Scroll one page at a time.
    • • Three-finger flick right or left: Go to the next or previous page (such as the Home screen, Stocks, or Safari).
    • • Three-finger tap: Speak the scroll status (which page or rows are visible).
  • VoiceOver Controls
    • • Double-tap: Activate selected item.
    • • Touch an item with one finger, tap the screen with another finger (“split-tapping”): Activate item.
    • • Two-finger double tap: Play or pause in iPod, YouTube, Voice Memos, or Photos. Start or pause recording in Voice Memos. Start or stop the stopwatch.
    • • Three-finger double tap: Mute or unmute VoiceOver.
    • • Three-finger triple tap: Turn the display on or off. This is called a Screen Curtain.
    • Do single-finger flicking gestures quickly, to distinguish them from dragging gestures.
  • VoiceOver Rotor
            • The rotor control is an invisible dial that you can use to change the results of up and down flick gestures when VoiceOver is turned on.
            • Operate the rotor: Rotate two fingers on the iPod touch screen to “turn” the dial to choose between options.
            • The effect of the rotor depends on what you’re doing. For example, if you’re reading text in an email you received, you can use the rotor to switch between hearing text spoken word-by-word or character-by-character when you flick up or down. If you’re browsing a webpage, use the rotor to choose whether you hear text word-by-word or character-by-character, hear just the headers, hear just the links (all of them, visited links, or links not yet visited), hear form elements, or hear descriptions of images.
  • Important Information VoiceOver
    • Mute VoiceOver
    • Double-tap with three fingers. Double-tap again with three fingers to turn speaking back on. To turn off only VoiceOver sounds, set the Ring/Silent switch to Silent.
    • Stop speaking an item
    • Tap once with two fingers. Tap again with two fingers to resume speaking. Speaking automatically resumes when you select another item.
    • Turn off the display while you use VoiceOver
    • Triple-tap with three fingers. Triple-tap again with three fingers to turn on the display again.
    • Speak entire screen from the top
    • Flick up with two fingers.
    • Speak from current item to bottom of screen
    • Flick down with two fingers.
  • Voice Control
    • Voice Control is not a universal control but only for music.
    • Voice Control isn’t available in all languages.
    • Use Voice Control: Press and hold the Home button until the Voice Control screen appears and you hear a beep. Then use the commands described below to play songs.
    • You can also press and hold the center button on the iPod touch headset (included with Fall 2009 models with 32 GB or more) or the equivalent button on your Bluetooth headset to bring up Voice Control.
    • Control music playback
    • Say “play” or “play music.” To pause, say “pause” or “pause music.” You can also say “next song” or “previous song.”
    • Play an album, artist, or playlist
    • Say “play,” then say “album,” “artist,” or “playlist” and the name.
    • Shuffle the current playlist
    • Say “shuffle.”
  • Zoom
    • Many iPod touch applications let you zoom in and out specific elements. For example, you can double-tap or use the pinch gesture to expand webpage columns in Safari. Zoom is a special accessibility feature that lets you magnify the entire screen of any application you’re using to help you see what’s on the display.
    • Turn Zoom on or off: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > Zoom and tap the Zoom On/Off switch.
    • Zoom in or out: Double-tap the screen with three fingers. By default, the screen is magnified by 200 percent. If you manually change the magnification (by using the tap-and-drag gesture, described below), iPod touch automatically returns to that magnification when you zoom in by double-tapping with three fingers.
    • Increase magnification: With three fingers, tap and drag toward the top of the screen (to increase magnification) or toward the bottom of the screen (to decrease magnification). The tap-and-drag gesture is similar to a double-tap, except you don’t lift your fingers on the second tap—instead, drag your fingers on the screen. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger.
    • Move around the screen: When zoomed in, drag or flick the screen with three fingers. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger so that you can see more of the screen. Hold a single finger near the edge of the display to pan to that side of the screen image. Move your finger closer to the edge to pan more quickly. When you open a new screen, Zoom always goes to the top-middle of the screen.
  • White on Black
    • Use White on Black to invert the colors on the iPod touch display, which may make it easier to read the screen. The screen looks like a photographic negative when White on Black is turned on.
    • Invert the screen’s colors: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility and tap the “White on Black” switch.
  • Triple Click Home
    • Triple-click Home provides an easy way to turn some of the Accessibility features on or off when you press the Home button quickly three times. You can set Triple-click Home to turn VoiceOver on or off, turn White on Black on or off, or present the options to:
    • Set the Triple-click Home function: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility > Triple-click Home and choose the function you want.
  • Speak Auto Text
    • Speak Auto-text speaks the text corrections and suggestions iPod touch makes when you’re typing.
    • Turn Speak Auto-text on or off: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility and tap the Speak Auto-text switch.
    • Speak Auto-text also works with VoiceOver or Zoom.
  • Giant Fonts for Mail Messages
    • To increase readability, set a minimum font size for Mail message text to Large, Extra Large, or Giant.
  • Closed Captioning
    • Turn closed captioning on or off: Choose Video and turn Closed Captioning on or off.
    • The video must be made with Closed Captioning features built in.
    • It will not show all videos with text if not programmed into the movie or whatever you are watching.
  • Wide Screen Keyboard
    • Several applications let you rotate iPod touch when you’re typing so that you can use a larger keyboard:
    • Mail•
    • Safari•
    • Notes•
    • Contacts
  • Physical Adaptations
  • Text Expander
    • The customizable typing shortcut utility that saves you time! A utility that helps you type more efficiently and accurately. TextExpander watches what you type and inserts predefined snippets on the fly whenever you enter their corresponding abbreviations. Insert standard greetings, text, and signatures — including formatted text and pictures - Save keystrokes by typing simple abbreviations to get long snippets - Correct typos automatically

  • Study Desktop
    • Your personal tutor: Using a clever approach it takes care of scheduling card repetitions for you. Other flashcard software may require you to grade your answer. But this will soon become rather tedious – after all, you should focus on the topic. Study Desktop on the other hand will adapt to your progress using a spaced repetition model based on psychological and pedagogical research. If you give a wrong answer, it will prioritize the card for future exercise (and you will also have to repeat the card the following day). Consequently, if you provide a correct answer, the card will get a lower priority. Study Desktop is designed so you can use it both together with Study Mobile on your iPhone and alone.
    • What’s New in this Version - Study now remembers column ordering and sorting options for stack list views as well as other stack view options. - The Card > Swap Sides command allows you to exchange the front and back content of the selected cards.
