Hi John,

She has access to various iOS devices, but until now she hasn't been able to 
afford any of them, so now it's time to get serious about making a choice!

Mike, is it possible to get your friend to your local or state center for 
people who are blind and visually impaired?  Such a facility could evaluate 
your friend with hands on evaluations for the various options.

This person has never had a computer of any nature because of her hand 
problems, & I'm trying to talk her into getting an iPhone over the iPad, but 
for some reason she wants an iPad.  Maybe now when I read her these messages 
she'll change her mind.  She uses a Revere cell phone that she would for 
phone calls, but like all of you, I feel the iPhone would be her best 
option!  Phoning, texting, dictation, she would have it all, but I can't 
speak for her, & I don't know just how limited her hand useage is.  Thanks 
again for all your input.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Correct, you can’t send regular SMS messages with an iPad unless you also 
have an iPhone on the same WiFi network or you are using some sort of app. I 
believe in the US google Voice would allow you to use your iPad much like a 
phone.

Yes, if you have an iPhone and an iPad, there is a setting that will allow 
you to receive calls on the iPad if the iPhone is in range.

You can also double tap on a contact phone number on the iPad and make a 
call, again if the iPhone is in range.

But, without an iPhone, you would use FaceTime or Skype.

As for text messages, you can text using your email address to other Apple 
device owners with an iPad, but I do not think you can text to a non-Apple 
device. That one I'm not sure of, so take that with a grain of salt.

  I say that because when I get a phone call my iPad will sometimes ring. 
But yes, if you just have an iPad you will have to use Facetime to call.

  Hi Maria,



  Thank you very much for your input.  I'm going to assume that if she can 
email with this iPad, she'll be able to send text messages with it as well. 
Am I correct with this assumption?  Thanks again.

  Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

  Hi, the iPad does have dictation and email. I recommend she gets the iPad 
Mini 4. I have the mini 2, but it doesn't have all the somewhat recent 
hardware. I think she will need her phone with her to make phone calls.

  Hi All,



  I have absolutely no knowledge about iPads, so here goes.  A friend is 
blind with hand dexterity problems, & was told by others not to get the 
large iPad, but to get the midsize or small iPad.  From doing a little 
research you can get these iPads with WiFi or with WiFi & cellular.  If we 
get her one with WiFi & celular will she be able to make phone calls with 
the iPad?  Do the mini iPads have dictation for texting & emailing like the 
iPhones?  When we buy her this iPad does it matter who we buy it from, i.e, 
should we buy it from her cell carrier, Apple or other wise...?  All input 
will be gratefully accepted & greatly appreciated.  Thank y'all very much.

  Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!
