VO Lab

A great app to learn the basics of VoiceOver and get you on your way to using your iOS Device. VO Lab is an educational iPad game designed for people who are blind or have low vision to learn touch gestures and concepts of VoiceOver, Apple’s built-in screen reader on iOS Devices. The app is both entertaining and educational, and provides beginning learners of VoiceOver with opportunities to gain the required foundation skills to use the iPad or iPhone independently.

In the different levels of VO Lab you follow the instructions of a strange professor in his chemistry laboratory, in preparation of an experiment with fictional chemicals (producing amazing sounds).

VO Lab for iPad is self-voicing, with clear, spoken instructions and audio feedback. Because VoiceOver is not used, you can safely explore and develop VoiceOver touch gesture skills interactively, without the risk of unexpected and unwanted outcomes. Risk-free, hands-on learning in a gamified learning environment with fun sound effects: that’s what makes VO Lab a unique VoiceOver tutorial!

For young children with visual impairment, the acclaimed Ballyland Magic app is more suitable to learn VoiceOver skills.

App does not work.

I paid for this app. And so far I cannot get it to work. I flip my phone to the side so that the home screen is to the left or the right. And it still don’t work. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app. I have also tried turning my phone off and turning it back on. Either way I cannot get the app to work. I am very very very frustrated and disappointed.
