Using VoiceOver with iBooks

Amber and I created this video tutorial to quickly demonstrate the basics of using VoiceOver in iBooks. VoiceOver is the built-in screen reading software that comes with every recent iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Mac. Though it was chiefly designed for users with vision impairments, it obviously carries a wide range of educational uses too. And it is notably free and well-designed in a market where small fortunes are routinely spent on software. All this being said, I heartily recommend the Aussie voice over the grating American default.
