There are some features with this new iPhone OS that are really
exciting. It now supports wirless keyboards and braille displays.
This gives it more functionallity as a notetaking device. The
hardware also offers some really nice upgrades. The front side camera
could be potentially used to make VP calls through VRS or to other
VP's. A completely mobile solution for VP and Text services would be
awesome for deaf users. The backside camera is also a 5 megapixel
camera with a LED flash. with this quality an option for the iPhone
could possibly be developed that is bomparable to the KNFB phone
There are also some really nice features being added to the VoiceOver
app. One of them improves typing. There will be an option for
dragging to select then lifting your finger to type the character off
of the onscreen keyboard. This should really speed up typing.
The one thing that is missing that I would like to see is support for
switch activation or strick keyboard access. With VoiceOvers feature
that lets you flick your finger to switch between objects on the
screen and the added wireless keyboard options this is probably soon
to come.
It's a good day to be a geek.
