It's here: Our iPhone guide for iOS5!

The update you've been waiting for... 
                        Getting Started with the iPhone and iOS5 for Blind Users 
                        by Anna Dresner with Dean Martineau
                        In braille (3 volumes), eBraille, Word, ePUB, and DAISY formats, $22

                        The iPhone keeps getting better!

                        This second edition contains new information since the release of iOS5 in October 2011, including the remarkable voice assistant Siri. Getting Started with the iPhone walks you through exploring and learning to use your iPhone in detail. You will learn how to set up your phone, load and back up music, contacts, etc., use the built-in apps and buy more! It includes an extensive reference sheet and the appendices include all the gestures used to operate the phone, as well as troubleshooting tips and a list of resources to help you learn more.

                        Most of the book is also relevant for iPod Touch users. iPad screen layouts, on the other hand, are different enough that many of the details described will not apply, but information about configuring the iPhone and using the gestures will still be helpful. Look for our new book on the iPad this summer.
