Free and Low Cost Assistive Technology of the Week 03/17
IssieBoard - iOS

IssieBoard is a customizable keyboard app for the iOS platform and allows for customization of the keyboard.

Once the app has been downloaded, the keyboard needs to be turned on in the iPad settings.
(settings - General - Keyboards - Add New Keyboard - IssieBoard) 

After turning the keyboard on it can be used on the iPad in any app where typing is used, simply by switching between keyboards. 

The keyboard is appropriate for individuals with learning disabilities, visual impairments, motor impairments, and cognitive impairments. It can also be used to assist individuals learning to type. 
Customization features of the keyboard can be found in the app settings and include:

1. Customization of color of keys, letters, and keyboard background.
2. Customization of color of keys, letters, and background color by row, or sections of the keyboard (right, middle, left).
3. Customization of color of specified keys.
4. Customization of letters that will appear on the keyboard (all other letters will be blocked out) in order to practice typing of specific words.

There is a wide range of color choices available such that customization can be optimized for the individual user.
