I just purchased a big Jambox and for the most part, I love it. The speaker phone is awesome and almost makes the $269 price from Amazon worth it, but one thing was just driving me crazy.

A variety of Bluetooth keyboards are now available for paired use with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Many of these are mini-keyboards with only a subset of the keys of the Apple Wireless Keyboard, or requiring the press of modifier keys like an "Fn" key to activate alternate functions. You can have VoiceOver announce these key functions by entering keyboard help mode or by visiting the practice gestures area of the Setting menu as an alternative to pressing the Control-Option-K keys on your keyboard.

There are many models of Bluetooth keyboards supported on iOS. The Amazon Basics Bluetooth Keyboard for Apple Devices, the Logitech line of keyboards, Apple's own set of keyboards, and many others.

I believe that I have figured out how to get an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to autocorrect with a bluetooth keyboard connected.

First, make sure that you have QuickNav turned off.

If you are not sure how to do this, just press the right and left arrows together on your keyboard.

Then, try this:

When VoiceOver tells you a word is misspelled, hit the Backspace key once.

Now a suggestions list pops up, but I doubt VoiceOver will tell you that it has.

This tip is intended for those who either have, or are considering buying a Mac Mini since it does not take up much space and don't wish to use a screen because you're a Voiceover user who don't need a screen. I have created this tip because Apple's support article does not (yet) explain a solution that works. However, I know that they are going to investigate this issue.

Hello, everyone. Two years and literally thousands of changes later, the second edition of Personal Power is now available. It's an ebook which I wrote and am giving away freely. Basically, the book takes people from setting up their iPhones to thriving in the iOS environment. It teaches how to use VoiceOver, the various parts of iOS, and a whole lot of apps.

If you're using a Multi-Touch trackpad, you can use VoiceOver gestures. VoiceOver provides a set of standard gestures for navigating and interacting with items on the screen. You can't modify this set of gestures. NOTE: Gestures that don't mention a specific number of fingers are single-finger gestures.


Enable the Trackpad Commander and VoiceOver gestures: VO-Two-finger rotate clockwise

Disable the Trackpad Commander and VoiceOver gestures: VO-Two-finger rotate counterclockwise

Turn the screen curtain on or off: Three-finger triple-tap
