Hi. I've just joined, though have been on this list before a couple of years ago. Anyone who was on Tech A Break might remember me saying I had ordered the newest Ipod Touch. Well, now I have it. I've found it a difficult experience. I couldn't set it up myself, 'cos I didn't understand or know what gestures to do to select things and then find the "next" button or whatever was there to take me to the next screen. I tried looking on Google but couldn't find any tutorials anywhere on actually setting up the Ipod with voiceover, so apple care and RNIB helped. I feel like I take 1 step forward and at least 1 back each time I use the Ipod, but I'm determined to carry on. Anyway, I have 2 issues I'd like advice on please if possible. The first, I've got podcasts onto the Ipod, but I'd like to delete some off it. How do you do that please with voiceover? I've looked up something on Apple Vis but when I've tried what it says, it didn't work for me. It suggested to find the podcast, double tap and hold, then swipe my finger left to right. when I double tapped and held, I definitely heard a different sound to that you hear when an item is opened or selected, but swiping either did nothing if I kept my finger on the screen between gestures, and if I lifted, it just moved to the podcast next to the 1 I wanted to delete. I've also got some ebooks on here, and have forgotten how to get the book to read. they're text, not audio books. I can open it, find the contents page and others, but can't get to read the text, not even hear the word "image." If someone can remind me please how to read through an Ebook, I'd be very grateful. Incidentally, I've got the latest edition of IOS 6 on the Ipod. Thanks for reading. Jill.
