Hi,
Does anyone know of documentation that tells how to do switch accessibility testing on IOS and Android? So far I have found Apple documentation about how to set up switch access, but not how to use it. I have also heard, but not confirmed, that using a blue tooth keyboard on Android works as a substitute for using switch.

Thanks.

Jim

Hi Jim,
I got a PDF a while back from Chris Hills, because I run Linux and don't
have iTunes where it's otherwise available. I have it on my website, you
could see if it's useful?

Nothing about Android in there. For iOS the screen of the phone/tablet
itself can be a single switch. It sounds right that the bt keyboard can
do the same for Android.

cheers,
Mallory

Hi Jim,

Here's doc explaining how to set-up and use Switch Access on Android.
https://support.google.com/accessibility/android/answer/6122836?hl=en&ref_topica51780

You can use any keyboard, wired or wireless, with Android. I bough a cheap
bluetooth game controller for testing (8Bitdo ZERO) and it works perfectly.
