iPhones, iPods, & iPads forum


Physically disabled

I hope someone can help me I have a few questions about iPad.
I am physically disabled and have very limited use of my hands and I use a mouthstick and voice activated Dragon speech .
What I want to know is, 1. Do I have to use the ID fingerprint thing? I would really
rather not use it. 2. What type of stylus would I be able to use with the iPad tablet?
As of now I have a really long homemade mouthstick which is made out of wood and has a hard tip I'm hoping this is going to work.
My final question is, does it support the Dragon software
or have something like it I can use on the tablet?

Thank you,
Lynn B

I think I'd use Siri instead.
