Listening to a webcast and taking notes on DraftPad on the IPhone or iPad

DarftPad for mobile“I can listen to a webcast and take notes.  Previously, this required getting transportation to the presentation and lugging a Braille notetaker.  Now I use my netbook for the webcast and my phone with external keyboard and the DraftPad app to take notes.”

DraftPad is free and offers a very accessible interface that can be used with VoiceOver or once the text has been copied, then select ‘Speak’.  It  allows you to send or share your notes via email, SMS and social networking sites as well as open them in other apps that may be on your device such as DocsToGo for more formatting, Evernote for linking with other notes, DropBox for sharing or backing up file.  The app also links with text speaking apps such as SpeakText Free.

This strategy came thanks to Pat Pound on My Life Simplified via Accessible Web and Apps!
