Many veterans have participated in the WBRC's iProgram training for the iPad 4 and iPhone 4. With the recent available updates, these veterans should note the information below:
Attention iPhone and iPad Users:
Please do not download the iOS 7 software update for your iPhone or iPad if you haven’t already. Your iPad/iPhone will continue to work properly without installing the update. The iProgram team is in the process of completing a thorough evaluation of the Pros and Cons of this update and will inform you of the results when completed.
For those of you who have already downloaded the update:
Voice Over Users:
Many of the native Apps (ones that come with the device) have additional functionality, and have onscreen elements that have moved or may be relabeled (i.e. – “Utilities button” is now “Share Button”). The best approach is to continue to flick right or left to explore and find what you want.
Many of the native apps have a slightly different appearance and may be more difficult to see. To assist with that, using a solid black background could be helpful. Additionally, there are settings that can be changed and may help. In the Settings App, under General , consider changing the following Accessibility settings:
Larger Type - turn On, Increase Contrast – turn On, Reduce Motion – turn On. Bold Text – turn on (note when changing bold text to on the device needs to restart, just confirm OK to make the change.)
