Two great products in one. A SpeedDots Tactile Screen Protector and an Otterbox
Defender case compatible with the iPhone 5C. The protector will come already attached
to your case. This case is only compatible with the iPhone 5C.
By popular request, we now offer a phone layout for the tactile screen protectors
for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, or iPhone 5C. This layout is designed for those who
primarily use their iPhone to make phone calls. If you plan on also using the phone
for email, text messages, or other functions, we recommend the standard or advanced
We offer three different models of screen protectors for the iPhone 5, 5S, and
5C. Our standard overlay contains a dot on each letter and input control while our
advanced overlay contains similar markings on buttons and input controls, however
only the letters F and J on the virtual keyboard will contain raised dots. The Phone
layout features markings on the entire phone keypad including a double set of dots
on the number 5 for easy identification.
If you wish to order a different model, please return to the screen protectors
category. Please write us if you have any questions.
Why use a tactile screen protector?
While it is true that a blind or visually impaired person does not require tactile feedback to use a touchscreen with voiceover, We have discovered that placing single Braille dots in a few key locations on the screen can provide a noticeable increase in speed and productivity. If you are new to the touchscreen environment, or dislike the fact that there are no physical buttons on your phone, , then the tactile screen protector can offer both a practical, and affordable solution for you!
How And Why?
While apple has done a great job making its touch screens fully accessible to blind and visually impaired users, , simply placing raised dots on the surface of the screen in a few key locations can help individuals input text and information accurately and confidently! Apple, along with many third-party developers typically place buttons in the same locations, which we are subsequently able to mark with a small, raised Braille dot. These tiny dots can be easily felt, but in no way obstruct a sighted person's view of the screen as our screen protectors are clear. This makes it easy for you to share your phone with sighted friends, colleagues, family members, etc., without interfering with the phone's operation
While the iPhone can do so much, there is a large group of people out there who -
believe it or not - still prefer to use the iPhone for making phone calls only. Here are the marks included on this layout.
- Keypad Keys: 0-9, *, #
- Below Keypad: Save to contacts, call, delete
- Bottom Row: Favorites, recent, contacts, keypad, and voicemail
- To speed up dialing, we have put 2 dots on the number 5 as well as the call button.
