How to Read Screen Text Out Loud on iOS - MakeUseOf

How to Read Screen Text Out Loud on iOS - MakeUseOf | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Getting your iOS device to read out text to you is an easy affair — it can be done using nothing more than native features. Third-party options exist but are rare, partly due to Apple’s restrictive approach to what kind of access third-party developers can have.

Coding on iOS Is More Feasible Than Ever Before

Coding on iOS Is More Feasible Than Ever Before | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
In a series of tweets yesterday, one of the developers behind Codea announced that a new version of the iPad coding app had been approved for release, and this update would enable code sharing for the first time.

Previously we covered the revised App Store guidelines that now permit downloading and executing code inside of apps, but we haven't seen those changes put into practice before now. With version 2.3.7 of Codea you can now import projects from both .zip files and .codea bundles, making it easy to share code with others.

How to manipulate iOS text using the keyboard | Cult of Mac

How to manipulate iOS text using the keyboard | Cult of Mac | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Because iOS is a variant of macOS, it has a lot in common with the Mac. One of the things that iOS shares with the Mac is the keyboard. Not the on-screen keyboard, but the real, physical, clackety-buttoned keyboard. Thanks to its OS X heritage, the iPad (and iPhone) can use all the same keyboard tricks to manipulate text that Mac users have been enjoying for years.

It even carries some, but not all, of the shortcuts over from the ancient text editor Emacs. What? Don’t worry, it’s not too dorky.
