STEP 3: CONFIGURE YOUR SWITCH Once your switch is connected to your iOS device, you will need to configure it with Switch Control. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Go to Settings App > General > Accessibility > Switch Control > Switches Select Add New Switch Select External Activate your switch a. You may see the message “Switch Conflict – The switch you activated is already being used. Please choose another switch.” If you see this message and are using Blue2, activate the Mode button on Blue2 and try using Mode 2 or 3. If you see this message and are using the Hook+, try using Switch Jack 3 or 4. If you are still having issues, go to Settings App > General > Accessibility > Switch Control > Switches and delete the already configured switches. You will be asked to name your switch. We recommend you name your switch in a way that it makes it easy to identify at a later time (e.g. B2 Mode 1 White Top, Hook S 1, etc). Once you have named, select Save. Choose Select Item Your switch is now configured. If you want, you can add a second action to this switch by selecting Long Press. If you add a Long Press action, the user will hold activate the switch for a predetermined amount of seconds to access the second action. STEP 4: CONFIGURE SWITCH CONTROL SETTINGS Within Switch Control, there are a variety of settings that will help you customize the user experience. 1. Go to Settings App > General > Accessibility > Switch Control 2. Scanning Style: Select Auto Scanning 3. Timing > Auto Scanning Time: This is how fast the scan will move on the screen of the iOS device. Set the number of seconds appropriate for the user. The following Switch Control settings are optional for single switch auto scanning, but can be used to further refine the user experience with Switch Control. RECIPES A recipe is a recorded gesture or series of gestures (e.g. a macro) that can be repeatedly activated from a switch. The user can start a recipe from the black pop-up menu that appears when scanning or a recipe can be manually started from this settings menu. Recipes are great for repetitive tasks like turning the page in an ebook or a control for a game. A recipe can be set to automatically turn off after a predetermined amount of time or turn off when a second switch is activated. PAUSE ON FIRST ITEM When Pause on First Item is turned on, the scan will pause on the first item for the number of seconds you specify. This pause takes place when the scan first begins, and again after an item has been selected and the scan starts over. This gives the user a chance to quickly look at the screen to determine where the next item they want to select is before the scan starts. LOOPS When Auto Scanning is on, the scan will go through all of the items on the screen and start over. The number of loops is how many times the scan will go through all of the items and start over. After the number of loops has been completed, the scan will stop. Activating the switch will start the scan again. LONG PRESS If you added a second Long Press action to your switch, this is how you set the number of seconds a switch must be activated to trigger the Long Press action. There is also a setting to pause scanning when a long press is activated. 4 AbleNet ablenetinc.com/resources/consumer-technology-as-at/

****** Page 5 ****** TAP BEHAVIOR Tap Behavior determines what happens when the user selects an item when scanning. Default: When a user selects an item while scanning a black pop-up menu will appear. Within this pop-up menu, the user will be presented with choices on how they can interact with the item they have selected. Auto Tap: When a user selects an item while scanning, the tap function will be used. To bring up the black pop-up menu, the user will need to activate their switch two times within a specified amount of time. Always Tap: When a user selects an item while scanning, the tap function will always be used. The user will scan to the end of their screen to bring up the black pop-up menu. SCAN SAME KEY AFTER TAP When scanning and typing, this setting enables the user to scan and select the same letter again. ALWAYS TAP KEYBOARD KEYS When scanning and typing, instead of bringing up the black pop-up menu when a keyboard key is selected, the key will automatically be selected. EXTENDED PREDICTIONS This setting provides the user with a larger list of predictive text. HOLD DURATION When Hold Duration is turned on, you can specify the number of seconds a switch must be held down before it is recognized. Turning Hold Duration on can help users with spasticity from accidentally activating the switch at the wrong time during a scan. This setting can also help users who hold down a switch for a long time from activating multiple choices in a row. It should be noted that the Hold Duration time must be less than the Auto Tap setting so that a double click of the switch is recognized. IGNORE REPEAT When Ignore Repeat is turned on, you can specify the number of seconds that a switch can be repeatedly activated before it makes a second selection. Turning Ignore Repeat on can help users with spasticity from accidentally activating the switch multiple times during a scan. It should be noted that the Ignore Repeat time must be less than the Auto Tap setting so that a double click of the switch is recognized. POINT SCANNING > SELECTION MODE At certain times when using Switch Control, it may not recognize any hotspots on the screen and begin a Point Mode scan. A Point Mode scan brings up a moving cursor on the screen. The cursor first moves left to right, then moves top to bottom. During a Point Mode scan, the user is able to choose a specific location on the screen. There are three different selection modes available to the user. Single allows the user to make one vertical and one horizontal selection. Refined allows the user to make a vertical and horizontal selection and then make a second selection to further refine where they want to select. Precise is the same as refined, but the second selection is at a slower speed. GLIDING CURSOR SPEED At certain times when using Switch Control, it may not recognize any hotspots on the screen and begin a Point Mode scan. A Point Mode scan brings up a moving cursor on the screen. The cursor first moves left to right, then moves top to bottom. During a Point Mode scan, the user is able to choose a specific location on the screen. The Gliding Cursor Speed is how fast this scan will move across the screen. The higher the number, the faster the scan will move across the screen. SOUND EFFECTS If Sound Effects is turned on, as the scan moves between items on the screen a clicking sound will be activated. This can be helpful for users who need auditory cues. SPEECH If Speech is turned on, when the scan highlights an item it will read back what that item is to the user. This can be helpful for users who need auditory cues or are visually impaired. It should be noted that some items may not be readable. MENU ITEMS You can restrict what items show up in the black pop-up menu while scanning. AbleNet ablenetinc.com/resources/consumer-technology-as-at/ 5

****** Page 6 ****** GROUP ITEMS To help users scan quicker group items is turned on by default. When Group Items are on, the scan will put items on the screen into groups. The user will then be able to move from group to group, select a group, and then select an item within that group. This is similar to traditional row/column scanning that is used in other programs. When group items is turned off, the scan will scan every item on the screen individually. LARGE CURSOR Turning Large Cursor on will increase the size of the border that the scan uses. This makes it more obvious and easier to follow the scan across the screen. CURSOR COLOR You can change the color of the scan border to make it more visible on the screen as it moves. SAVED GESTURES You can create and save custom gestures like a swipe across the screen and access them from the black pop-up menu during the scan. STEP 5: TURN SWITCH CONTROL ON 1.
