Usage of iPad: screen touch or keyboard

I am looking for information on the input usage preference of visually
impaired for iPad - do they use screen touch as input or they prefer
keyboard with voiceover? The reason why I ask this is: when I use touch
as input I can read all the content under my finger irrespective if it's
accessible or not but the same behavior doesn't exist when I use
voiceover with a keyboard. Thus wanted to know mostly what is preferred
by visually impaired users: touch or keyboard as input device?
