Setting Up Your iOS Device.

SECTION 1: Navigating the iOS Device's Initial Setup Screens .

The Hello Screen.

If you held in the Wake/Sleep button long enough, and if you triple pressed the home button correctly, within 30 to 60 seconds your iOS Device will begin saying "Hello" in many different languages.

It doesn't matter which language Voiceover last used. You need to move to the next screen. In order to do this slide three fingers across the display from right to left.

  • You will then hear Your device say the name of a language followed by a brief pause, and the word "Button."
  • Selecting Your Language.

    1. If the language spoken is the one you want, skip to step 3.
    2. Use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display to advance to the next item on the screen.
    3. Don't touch the screen first. You have to do it all in one quick motion, like you were flicking a crumb off the display. You should hear a click, and your iOS Device will speak a phrase.

    4. Keep repeating a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until you hear the language you want.
    5. Now Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. This will set your device's default language.

    Your iOS Device will make a "Chirp" sound, and you will be advanced to the next screen. Voiceover will say, "Back Button."

    Choosing Your Country.

    If you Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger now, you will be taken back to the Language Selection Screen. Instead repeat a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until you hear the country where you live. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger to make your selection.

    Your iOS Device will make another Chirp sound and advance to the WiFi Setup Screen. Voiceover will say, "Back Button."

    The WiFi Setup Screen.

    A WiFi or Wireless network is most commonly found in homes, public areas like college campuses and airports, and businesses like hotels and coffee shops. They are generally localized to a small area such as a building, home, or public common area. WiFi networks can be public access or secured. Secured networks require a password before they can be joined.

    If you Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger now, you will be taken back to the Country Selection Screen. Instead use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display. Voiceover will say, "Next Button," and wait for you to take an action.

    Now Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. We'll skip the WiFi setup screen and come back to it when you have a few more Voiceover skills under your belt.

    Your iOS Device will Chirp again, and you will be taken to the Location Services Screen.

    The Location Services Screen.

    Location services allows your iOS Device to report its location to various applications and services. For example, to get directions from your current location to a particular address, your iOS Device needs to tell the Maps application where you are. The Maps application gets this information through location services.

    Some people have privacy concerns about the location of their iOS Device being logged. You will have to decide whether you want to enable or disable these services. You can always change your mind later.

    1. Use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display and listen to what Voiceover has to say.
    2. Repeat this gesture until Voiceover says, "Enable Location Services, Button."
    3. If you want these services on, skip to the next step. Otherwise perform a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display. Voiceover will say, "Disable Location Services, Button."
    4. Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Your iOS Device will Chirp and go to the next screen.

    The Touch ID Screen.

    Using TouchID allows you to use your fingerprint to unlock your iPhone. We are going to skip this step for now, but you can set this up at any time after reading Section 4.2 of the lesson on Security.

    1. For now, repeatedly use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until Voiceover says, "Setup Touch Id Later."
    2. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Your iOS Device will chirp again and Voiceover will say, "Alert! Setup Touch ID later?"
    3. Repeatedly use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until Voiceover says, "Continue, Button."
    4. Now Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Your iOS Device will chirp and you will move on to the Password Screen. Voiceover will say, "Passcode, 0 of 6 values entered."

    The Passcode Screen.

    Your iOS Device is now waiting for you to set up a passcode. A passcode protects your device from being accessed if it is lost or stolen. By default your iOS Device allows you to set a six digit passcode. Please be careful not to use your birthday, anniversary, or other code that is easy for someone to guess.

    1. Repeat a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until Voiceover says the first number you want in your passcode.
    2. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger to add the number to the passcode.
    3. Now slide one finger around the screen. until you find the next number to add to the code.
    4. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger to add the number to the passcode.
    5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all 6 numbers have been added.

    If you make a mistake, there is a Delete key below and to the right of the zero. Double tap it with one finger to delete the last number entered.

    When the sixth digit is added, Voiceover will say, "Passcode, 0 of 6 values entered," and you must enter the passcode again to confirm the passcode you chose.

    Apps and Data.

    This screen gives you the option of transferring data from your previous iOS Device to the current one, or of setting your iOS Device as new. To continue with setting up a new device, do the following:

    1. Repeatedly use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until Voiceover says, "Setup as new, button."
    2. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger to select the option.

    You will then be prompted to set up your Apple ID, which we will do later. For now perform these steps.

    1. Repeatedly use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until Voiceover says "Don't have an Apple ID of forgot it, button."
    2. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Voiceover will say, "Back button."
    3. Repeatedly use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until Voiceover says "Setup later in settings, button."
    4. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Voiceover will say, "Alert! Are you sure you don't want to use an Apple ID?"
    5. Repeatedly use a single finger flick from left to right across the center of the display until Voiceover says "Don't use, button."
    6. Then Tap anywhere on the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Your iOS Device will chirp and Voiceover will say, "Back button."

    This section contains step by step instructions for making configuration changes to your iOS Device which VoiceoverEasy.net believes will simplify the learning process. The steps can be followed by the beginning student, but they do not contain explanations of each step.

    These directions assume that Voiceover is turned on.

    2.1: Set up WiFi.

    WiFi transfers data to the internet much faster than through cellular service. Data transmitted this way also does notcount against your data plan. Many homes have WiFi connectivity available through their cable company. If there is a WiFi network at home or someplace else where you frequently go, fololow these steps to connect to it.

    1. Go to the Home Screen.
    2. Explore the display with your finger until Voiceover says, "Settings."
    3. Tap the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Your iOS Device should chirp, and the Settings Screen should open.
    4. Slide your finger down the screen near the left edge until Voiceover says, "WiFi, Button." If Voiceover says something else between the words "WiFi," and "Button," then you are already connected to a wireless network.
    5. Slide your finger down the center of the screen until Voiceover says, "WiFi," followed by either "on," or "Off."
    6. If Voiceover said, "WiFi Off," thentap the screen twice rapidly with one finger. Voiceover should now say, "WiFi, On."

    There are three features which often cause difficulties for totally blind Voiceover users. They are Auto-Correct, Check Spelling, and Predictive Typing. These features often get in the way of new Voiceover users and can often be confusing. VoiceoverEasy.net recommends that you turn these features off until you are more comfortable with typing. To turn them off you must go to the Keyboard Options Screen in the Settings app and follow these steps.

    1. Go to the Home Screen.

    9. Slide your finger down the center of the screen until Voiceover says, "Check Spelling," followed by either "on," or "Off. If Voiceover doesn't say anything about Check Spelling, then don't worry. Simply skip the next step and move on to Predictive Typing."
