  1. With obvious interest in switch accessibility, you should know about the impending launch of a new product from Pretorian Technologies.

    The APPlicator, a switch interface for iPad ( and iPhones ) switch accessible apps, has been available in the US via Inclusive TLC for about one month and is proving to be very useful for those needing a simple device for these switch apps.

    However another device Switch2Scan ( launch before the end of May) giving switch (from 1 to 4 switches) accessibility for all the iPad functions ( including PageTurning for iBook and other book reader apps). So it is not dependant on apps being switch accessible.

    I hope that you will be able to share this with a few of your colleagues so that we have some professional views and comments about the device

    The basic detail is below…

    Scanning switch access for the i-Pad.
