iPads are popular "reader devices" for individuals who use TypeWell services to receive communication access. Premium linking methods like Web Linking, Internal Linking, and StreamText can all be used to display the live transcript in the iPad's web browser.
Transcriber Christine Fiechter submitted these how-to instructions, for readers who find it too cumbersome to use two separate devices (e.g., an iPad for reading TypeWell and a separate electronic device to do independent work or research).
Declutter that crowded desk, with the release of iOS10! Users can read the TypeWell transcript on one half of the iPad screen while using the internet or other apps on the other half of the screen.
NOTE: Following is the list of iPads that will be able to upgrade to iOS 10
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch
- iPad Pro 9.7-inch
- The iPad Air 2
- iPad Air
- iPad 4th generation
- The iPad Mini 4
- The iPad Mini 3
- The iPad Mini 2
Use Split View with Safari
With the TypeWell Web Reader (Web Linking or Internal Linking) page open in Safari, in landscape mode, just touch and hold the Tab button ( ), then tap Open Split View.
Tap the newly opened search bar and search or enter a website name. If you already have a tab open, you can drag the tab left or right in the Split View.
To leave Split View, touch and hold the Tab button ( ) at the bottom, and select Merge All Tabs. You can also tap the Xs to close tabs individually and leave Split View.
You can use Split View with other apps too, like Notes, Photos, Calendar, and more; however, Split View isn't available with all apps.
Use Split View with Apps
You can use Split View and use two apps at the same time like Notes, Photos, Calendar, and Maps; however, Split View isn't available with all apps.
To open an app, swipe from the right side of the iPad screen to left side of screen. Scroll to the app you want and tap it.
Tap or drag the app divider to start using both apps.
Now both apps are a good, viewable size.
To leave the app split view, swipe the app divider from left to right.
