Smartphone / Tablet Buttons

Jed Elmaleh, MPT, CAPS, MSCS's picture Suggested by Jed Elmaleh, MPT, CAPS, MSCS

Many of the on / off, volume and function buttons on many of the smartphones and tablets are flush with the units and difficult to access for people with manual dexterity issues. Perhaps a clip on or other adaptation that allows people to more easily access these buttons would be a useful tool.

I forgot to add Jane Farrall's blog about switch access to the iPad where she mentions control of the volume, videos and music etc.

Having done the rounds of the app stands here in ATIA - most people have stickers and bubcaps to stop the home button being selected by users inadvertently. There are many types of switch access but that does not help you and when I thought about the bump-ons used to mark Microwave oven buttons I realised they were too big for the side of the devices. Mixed colour bumpons

I am sitting in a conference in USA which is awash with iPads and other tablets and I will ask around to see if anyone has thought of this idea!
