First, check to see if the version you want to downgrade to is still being signed. Google should do the trick or else idownloadblog.com always posts when an ios version has stopped being signed. Second, go to ipsw.me and download the version you want to downgrade to and download it. Idownloadblog.com also has a downloads page where you can find ios versions. Third, go to your downloads folder and open the file you just downloaded. It should open in itunes. If not, use open in. Fourth, use…

As I don't know how to create podcasts yet here is a basic guide on how to use and enjoy Traveler's Quest.

First it may be a good idea to contact the developer of this app thanking them for such an accessible app so hopefully it stays that way.

Once you have downloaded and opened the app and followed all the intro messages it is probably a good idea to find settings on the main app screen and flick right on that screen untill you find the map settings. I turned 3d map off and…

*** I hope others will add comments here.
The goal: to take videos of some partly inaccessible software to send to its developer. The videos would need to be quick clips that only show the problem; not long-winded amateur off-the-cuff recordings that would bore the developer.
The problem: blind with just light perception and no experience of being sighted before. No idea how to do this.
The solution: First, practice with the software, making audio recordings for your own…

I totally admit that this started out to be a selfish venture. just got my first Mac, and I was totally confused by how the items on the site were organized. That and I'm a total PC user, so I got out my trusty text editor and organized a list of what I thought I should listen to in the Podcasts area, organized the way I hoped I should listen. When I was done, I felt guilty, and thought I should share the list here. This is my totally uneducated stab, so please feel free to comment, and…

Starting in iOS 10, a new way exists through the actions rotor to move apps around your various home screens. While the old method is still available, the new way of accomplishing this task seems to be preferred by many. In iOS 11, it then became possible to drag multiple apps at the same time. The below process was written for iOS version 12.1, and if the instructions do not work as outlined below, chances…

Hello again,
I'm back with another a blind legend guide. So lets begin.
The goal of scene 15 is to deflect the archer's poisoned arrows with your blade and fight two monsters.
So lets begin.
Follow Louise till you reach the section where the game plays on auto. Louise will get shot in the leg and then Blake automatically will draw his sword.
In order to block the arrows you will need to swipe in the direction the arrow is coming from. Using your shield will not…

Hey AppleVis community, Haven't done guides in a while, but back with one based on A Blind Legend. Scene 15 is sometimes a little hard to understand. The goal in scene 15 is to reach the door to the place where they will attempt to help Louise. When it is your turn to play, orient yourself so you are lined up with the chimes. Walk forward at any pace desired, and you will stumble across some monsters. They are a little tricky, so be careful. Then, keep walking, still headed straight for…

I needed to have Windows 7 with JAWS on MacBook Airs. However, Windows 7 is nor supported on newer Macs via Bootcamp. When running VMware Fusion, the Caps Lock key was not passing through as the assigned JAWS key and there were issues with VMware Fusion's built in key mapping feature. Here is a workaround that I developed. Note that this should also work in El Capitan and with NVDA.
  1. Download and install the latest version of Karabiner-Elements.
  2. Start JAWS
  3. Open the…

If you open a webpage that doesn't have access to the Safari Reader and is difficult to navigate you could try saving it as a PDF. Admittedly you won't be able to interact with it and open links and drop down menus etc, but if you just want to be able to read general information more easily it may be useful. Just select the share button and choose Save PDF to iBooks. Once in iBooks you would need to tap on the document and set the rotor to something like lines and flick down to read the…

First, let me thank everyone who kindly answered my questions in the forums here about how to do this efficiently. Now that I've mastered the skill, I felt I should summarize it in this guide.

Sharing the information you get in a text message is easy, but not always ovvious. And to do it rapidly takes practice.

Let's say your spouse is driving and needs a friend's address. You text the friend and they send you an address, the combination for their front door, a link to a…

With the release of iOS 10, Apple introduced new visual effects that you can attatch to iMessages, to enhance the experience. Some of you may be asking "why would I want to send visual effects"? The short answer is because it's fun, and the great news is that Apple has made the process fully accessible, and when someone sends you a message with a full-screen effect, VoiceOver reads a full description of what's happening on the screen right as it happens. I won't go into all the effects…

Note: This guide is an updated version of my article “An Overview of Five Text Editors”, submitted to the AppleVis community in February, 2014.

Introduction

iPhone and iPad users have a bewildering abundance of plain text editors from which to choose. For projects not requiring complex formatting, there's really no need to bother with a word processor. Devotees of minimalism will revel in…

If any one here uses quicktime on the mac to record the output of an ios device, or just to record something, you might have noticed, that there is an option to stop the recording, but not an option to pause it. As a matter of fact, the recording can be paused. Here's how.

So, when you are recording something, and you want to pause the recording, hold down the option key. If The vo cursor is over the stop recording button, after you hold down the option key, this button will…
