I would like to credit Zack Kline for all the help he gave me in learning the game and the games author David Dunham of a-sharp for making the game in the first place and taking the time to make it as accessible as is.Exploring
Exploring is a vital, if dangerous, part of the game. You will unlock events, find treasures and even clans or other people. You can explore the land around your own clan as well as your own land (tula in game terms). Note that, even though you might think so,…

Can I use a braille display with my iOS Device? If so, which models are compatible?
Yes, any iOS Device that runs VoiceOver can support a large variety of Bluetooth braille displays. Common ones include Humanware's Brailliant line, the Focus displays from Vispero, and many other braille devices from Alva, Baum, HIMS, and other companies. Please see Apple…
Can My iOS Device Be a GPS?
Probably. If you have an iPhone or a cellular-capable iPad, then you can start using GPS apps right away. Owners of wifi-only iPads or all iPod Touch models do not have this luxury.
However, external GPS receivers do exist. Some connect via bluetooth, while others can plug into the Lightning port on your device. We have no direct experience with any of these systems, so the best we can do is tell you that our research shows they are out there.…
What is iTunes? Do I need it?
iTunes is a program made by Apple for Mac and Windows. It is a program for managing your iDevice's content, backups, and upgrades. As of iOS 5, iTunes is no longer required, except for putting music on your device and performing full, encrypted backups. You can activate, upgrade, and back up your iDevice using iCloud as of iOS5. If you are on Windows and still want iTunes, you can download it from Apple.com.…
Answering or Ending Calls
For the most part, you can both answer and end a call with one gesture: the two-finger double tap, also known as the "magic tap". Tap two fingers on the screen, then tap them again quickly. When you are receiving a call, this gesture will answer; when you are in a call, this gesture will end it. When ending a call, though, please note that you must remove the phone from your ear. This tells the phone to exit the mode where the touch screen is basically…
What Is This Rotor Thing?
The VoiceOver rotor is perhaps the most difficult aspect of VoiceOver to get used to because it is not a concept used in other screen readers. It is basically a way to use the same two gestures--up and down swipe with one finger--to perform multiple tasks. That is, an up or down swipe will do the action set in the rotor, and the rotor can be set at any point. The rotor is commonly used for reviewing text by word or character, changing the typing mode, and…
What is an iDevice?
Throughout this document, the term 'iDevice' is used to refer to a portable Apple device with a touch screen. This includes the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad product lines. When a specific device is mentioned, it is intentional. For instance, all iDevices have wifi, but only the iPhone and cellular-enabled iPad can access cellular networks. This is not an official term, but rather one adopted by the author for the sake of clarity.
What is iOS?
Thanks to Kevin Chao, I now have an easy way to convert Bookshare books to the EPub format that iBooks will accept. This assumes that you are on Windows (though I am sure the process is quite similar on a Mac), that you have a current Bookshare membership, and that the book you want to convert is in DAISY format, downloaded from Bookshare.
You will need:
- A Bookshare account, from http://www.bookshare.org
- The Stanza program, from…
These quick troubleshooting notes are intended to help with situations where an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch has lost Internet connectivity for no apparent reason. This loss of Internet access can be especially disconcerting with Wi-Fi-only models of the iPad or the iPod Touch, where no alternative means of access like 3G or Edge are available. Please feel free to contact me with any feedback.
See If You're Connected
There is a very accessible mail app built into iOS. However, there are a few things that it took me a bit to figure out, so I figured I would share my findings for anyone who has the same questions. Please note that I have only set up a GMail account, so I cannot say exactly how other account types will work, but the steps should be similar. Also, this is on an iPod Touch 4th generation running iOS 4.2.1 (latest as of Dec 30, 2010).
When you have created your account, you will be in…
In this guide, I will explain how to take a snapshot of any screen on your iPhone.

- Press and hold the Home button, then, while holding, press and release the sleep/wake button. This will take a .jpeg immage of the current screen and place it in your camera role. From…
Follow these steps to connect your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to a wireless network.
- Press the Home button to make sure you are on the Home screen.
- Double tap Settings.
- Double tap Wi-Fi.

This short guide shows how to rearrange app icons on your iOS device:
- First you need to do a double-tap and hold on the icon that you wish to move (make sure not to lift your finger after the second tap).
- Hold your finger on the screen until VoiceOver announces "moving <AppName>"
- Move your finger across the screen (making sure to keep your finger pressed to the screen whilst doing so). As you move your finger around the screen you will hear a 'click' sound.…
