My AirPods Pro 2 Review

 

The Good

 

Better noise cancellation.

Better sound.

Adjust volume easily on the stems of each AirPod.

Speaker on case to alert when charging or Find My.

Overall external design not changed.

 

Not so good

 

Not paring to iPhone reliably.

Each AirPod not sync’d with the other: slight echo affect.

Sometimes only one AirPods will connect.

Randomly disconnecting.Ra

When first reconnected, VoiceOver speech stutters.

Custom or Concept Keyboards for Speech Users of iOS and Android

 

 

There are have been and still are a range of these custom keyboards on the market for VoiceOver (iOS) and Android users (Talkback) none of which quite hit the mark on doing everything: eg navigation and keyboard input.

I think it comes down to what you feel comfortable physically using and whether you do more navigation than keyboarding.

Current keyboards that I use include the Hable One, Orbit Writer, and the RIVO keyboards.

I still have my Tap wearable, O6, the T-Keyboard, and the Help2Text mini keyboard.

Most of these keyboards are still quite expensive, so be sure before buying.
