Talking Typer (for iOS devices) is an accessible typing and computer keyboard tutorial app with a keyboard game designed for use by students who are blind, deafblind, or have low vision. Users learn to type or improve typing skills with drills, practice lessons, and keyboard explorer. It is designed for blind and visually impaired students, but can be used by sighted students too. Talking Typer for iOS devices comes with 35 built-in lessons at levels 1-10. Teachers and parents can create new lessons, edit lessons, and assign lessons to individual students or groups. Speed, accuracy, and typing level can also be set for individual students or groups. The app saves the results of each drill allowing students, teachers, and parents to monitor improvement. The app also includes the game Hurry Scurry, where students earn points by typing letters before the ball drops. The app is both self-voicing and accessible with Apple’s VoiceOver. The onboard keyboard of your device can be used with Talking Typer, but an external keyboard is recommended. Talking Typer (for iOS devices) can also be used with a refreshable braille display, like APH’s Refreshabraille 18TM Bluetooth®-enabled device, making it accessible for students who are deafblind as well.
