I’m an iOS/Mac software developer and have developed a vision problem that may prevent me from effectively using a computer monitor. (I get dizzy after using the monitor for longer than an hour or two. The problem remains unresolved after multiple doctors, meds and vision therapy.) I’m exploring the possibility of relying on VoiceOver and possibly voice-to-text for input and I understand there is a small community of developers who do just that. I was wondering if you had any advice on the subject or resources you could recommend.
Specifically, I’m wondering how to get started. How does one learn to navigate in general using a screen reader/voiceover? Is there a methodology of some sort? Are there programs or tutorials of some kind? Just diving in and floundering around doesn’t seem like the best way to do it. Also scary. I already know how to use Xcode, etc and how to be a developer, I need to learn how to use it (and the mac in general) primarily via voiceover. Any ideas or resources you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
