ipod Touch

Posted Jul 28 2010 6:14am

Okay so I am a little behind the iPod craze, I admit that.... So the other day I ordered a refurbished 8 GB from Uncle Vic .

It arrived a short time later but had a connection problem with the headphones (the music would cut in and out of one ear). They e-mailed me a shipping label for free return shipping and I quickly had a replacement, thanks uncle Vic !

Yesterday I set up the iPod touch with my music, e-mail, contacts and calendar which were easy to sync with my Outlook express. Since the house runs on WiFi it is easy to check my e-mail from my wheelchair anywhere in the house or watch hunting videos on YouTube for that matter.

I downloaded the free Dragon NaturallySpeaking application from the iTunes store and ordered a microphone from, when I get it set up next week I will let you know how Dragon NaturallySpeaking works on the iPod touch.

I'm also curious to see how Skype works using the iPod touch. Once I have the microphone set up I will let you know about that as well.

I think there are a lot of possibilities for using the iPod touch as an assistive technology device. My only complaint is the touch screen, I wish I could use my pencil as a stylus. Using my knuckle is not very precise. When will Apple realize that people with disabilities cannot always use their finger?
