Are there any tutorials for keyboard use on iOS devices for Window Eyes users?

iOS and iPadOS
I am seriously considering getting full sized keyboards for use with both my iPhone and my iPad. My fingers don't seem to be dexterous enough to deal with a compact keyboard, so I will need a big one, but I also am going to need some help getting past nearly two decades of habitual Window Eyes keystrokes and mouse navigation methods. Are there any tutorials out there that might help me make the transition? I know that VoiceOver is built on a completely different philosophy of layout and navigation, reflecting the actual visual layout of the screen just as with the touch commands and I am used to tabbing around through things, using the numpad keys to access the mouse cursor and buttons and many more differences that I can forsee requiring a total shift in thinking. Any tools that exist that might help me would be very good to have and I would be very grateful to anybody that can point me to such material. I took to the touch gestures without a hitch, but without even the most basic grounding in how keyboard access in iOS works, I am kind of at a loss.
Thanks for any help,
