VO Lab is an iPad game that is designed for adolescents and older students to learn and practice basic navigational touch gestures for VoiceOver, Apple’s built-in screen reader on iOS devices.
In the four multi-level stages of the VO Lab app you follow the directions of the strange Professor in his unusual chemistry lab, where he undertakes a not quite scientific experiment, with fictional chemicals. You practice touch gestures while you move through the app. When you have mastered all of the required touch gestures, you will be put in charge of the final experiment!
The app offers a fun and supportive learning experience. Although it has been demonstrated that the app can be used independently, active guidance and support may be required to help the learner perform the touch gestures correctly and achieve the best learning outcomes. To assist with this process, dynamically updated score-data and clear, short instructions are provided throughout the app.
The Taptap song helps to develop the correct timing and speed for the double tap gesture on the touch screen.
