By the end of this session you will have an understanding of what BookLink is and what it offers, and will be able to do the following on an iPad Mini:

  • Turn on/off the iPad.
  • Lock/unlock the iPad.
  • Turn on/off VoiceOver.
  • Use three basic VoiceOver gestures to:
  • navigate to the iPad Home screen (the place where you access the different applications (apps) on your iPad, including BookLink;
  • open an app.
  • Charge the iPad.
