Ballyland Magic App

An educational iPad game that helps children with vision impairment to learn and practice a number of VoiceOver gestures.

The Ballyland Magic app is specifically designed for young children with vision impairment to learn and practice their first navigational touch gestures for VoiceOver, Apple’s built-in screen reader. While engaging with the Ballyland Magic app, children with no or low vision will learn fundamental skills to use a mobile touch screen device. You don’t need to be a VoiceOver expert to assist the child – but by the end of the Magic Show, you may be well on your way to becoming one!!

  • No previous iPad experience required by the child or parent/teacher
  • Built-in speech
  • Original ‘Tap-tap’ practice song
  • Popular Ballyland characters
  • Use at home and at school
  • Designed with extensive feedback from young children with vision impairment, their parents and educators
