Author: AssistiveWare : Contact: assistiveware.com
Synopsis and Key Points:
Keeble, by AssistiveWare, is an iOS 8 keyboard that can be used in any iPad app as an alternative to the standard iOS keyboard.
Through its accessibility features Keeble allows individuals with fine motor-challenges or vision impairments to type in any iPad app.
Keeble offers self-learning word prediction and automatic capitalization to reduce typing effort, Hold Duration to prevent accidental selections and Select on Release to compensate for motor-challenges.
In addition, Keeble's layout can be customized for beginning as well as advanced typers and Keeble provides colored, gray and customizable themes to accommodate users with vision impairments.
Keeble offers a number of options to better accommodate younger students, such as a lowercase letters, colored vowels and a large, school-friendly font. Keeble offers 100% privacy with zero data collection.
"Many users of our communication apps Proloquo2Go and Proloquo4Text also have fine-motor or vision challenges," says David Niemeijer, CEO of AssistiveWare,
"Now that Apple introduced support for keyboard extensions in iOS 8, it was only natural that we deliver a keyboard optimized for accessibility that can be used in our own apps as well as all other iPad apps."
After Keedogo and Keedogo Plus, both designed for the educational market, Keeble is the third custom keyboard that AssistiveWare has released for iPad.
Keeble is AssistiveWare's top-of-the-line keyboard, offering all features found in the other keyboards plus accessibility features and a high degree of customizability.
Keeble is currently only available in English.
Keeble is exclusively sold on the App Store at an introductory price of US$ 9.99.
