I am forwarding this to the list because I believe it is an important resource for those of you who might at some time consider getting an iPhone.
Also I am including a link to a Visually Impaired iPhone users group which has over 1,300 subscribers and which I have never seen a post from any of the presenters on the subject of the Iphone which is to take place next weekend at the NFBMO state convention. It doesn't mean they aren't members, just that they have never posted to the group. Hard to believe that if they were that they wouldn't have at some time had one question about using the iPhone or some of the apps unless, of course they were all-knowing. Anyway, here's the link to the subscribe page.
Besides the below book which is just coming out there is another entitled getting Started with the iPhone which is in it's second edition, available from the National Braille Press, http://www.nbp.org
Check on their site for availability in several different formats.

The book is a 12-step guide to using your iPhone. It is written from the standpoint of one of our team members, Brie rumory, who was scared to death of the iPhone her husband got her for Christmas over a year ago, to finally deciding it was time to learn to use it. The book goes through all of the settings as well as the default apps that come on the phone, as well as accessibility, text input and management, Siri, the itunes and App stores, and whatever else you'll need to know to be up and running with your iPhone. It is a great resource also even if you've been using your phone for awhile, as a reference for those things you may have done but have forgotten how to do.
It is written with some humor while providing so much information. It is comprehensive yet not boring at any moment. I believe it is a must have in the library of anyone who has, is considering getting, or works with anyone who has an iPhone.
