QwertyCase Patch iPhone User Manual

User’s instructions for QwertyCase Patch

(for iPhones)

 

1. What is QwertyCase?

QwertyCase is a wireless keyboard that can be used by attaching it to a smartphone. Its key features include entry and editing of text, dialing, and controlling the smartphone using voice-over command shortcut keys.

 

2. Model Specifications for QwertyCase Patch

QwertyCase is a wireless keyboard that helps people with visual impairment to type and dial easily when using smartphones. Just like a smartphone, it has a thin, quadrilateral design. On the back of the case, there are 30 input keys; on the front of the case, there is a rubber plate with a built-in magnet. There are six keys with different functions, including a spacebar and a shift key, and a power slide switch as well as a conversion slide switch for 3 different modes on the top of the case. Lastly, there is a USB-C port for charging at the bottom of the case.

 

3. Advantages of QwertyCase

① Can be easily learned due to its close resemblance to a computer keyboard.

② Enables faster input speed with fewer typos

③ Typing becomes convenient on a mobile phone.

④ Great portability

 

4. Attaching it to an iPhone

QwertyCase has a built-in magnet, allowing you to attach the case to smartphones. Use the case along with the enclosed steel plate.

  • Attach the black plate to the phone case or the iPhone itself for magnetic attachment.
  • Attach QwertyCase to the black plate that you just attached.

* This product works wirelessly, which allows for it to be used even when it is detached from the iPhone.

5. Keyboard Arrangement

We modified the computer keyboard and arranged it on the QwertyCase products. Try picturing a computer keyboard in your head. After separating areas of the keyboard commonly used by the right and left hand, we re-arranged it onto QwertyCase products by rotating both areas 90 degrees to make them face each other. Just like computer keyboards, “F” and “J” are the reference keys with protruded surface, making them easy to identify.

 

6. How to hold the QwertyCase

Holding QwertyCase correctly is very important. Unlike when using a computer keyboard, hold and use QwertyCase as if it is an accordion.

If you do not understand how to use QwertyCase, please seek help from people who do not have disabilities.

* Please refer to pages 2 and 4 of the enclosed user’s instructions to activate big letter function.

  • Attach QwertyCase to the iPhone and lay the phone horizontally with the screen facing the user. The function keys face upwards in this position.
  • Grip QwertyCase gently using both hands. Place both thumbs on the function keys, which are on the top of the case. Place the remaining fingers on the keyboard on the back of the case.
  • Just like the ones on a computer keyboard, the reference keys “F” and “J” have bumps. Place your left index finger on “F” and your right index finger on “J”.
  • Position the remaining fingers side by side next to your index fingers.
  • Your fingers are now arranged to use the keys on QwertyCase just like the ones on a computer keyboard.

* You can use the keyboard on QwertyCase the same way you use a computer keyboard in this state.

 

7. Installing the QwertyCase APP

Search for “QwertyCase” in the app store and install the official application before using the product. You can check the instruction manual conveniently using the application.

 

8. Turning the product on

Turn on the power using the slide switch located on the top. The QwertyCase will vibrate as soon as the power is turned on. If it fails to vibrate, try moving the mode conversion switch. If it still does not vibrate, you will have to charge it.

 

9. Setting up the product for your smartphone

QwertyCase is released for iPhones. Therefore, iPhone users do not need to set it up.

*Please refer to the instructions for iPhone on page 6 or attachment 1 for key arrangement pertaining to large (print) characters.

Press the “Voice over” key, “Command” key, and the letter “I” simultaneously for 5 seconds. When the setup is complete, two short vibrations will occur.

② Changing the setup for Android phones

Press the “Voice over” key, “Command” key, and the letter “A” simultaneously for 5 seconds. Once the setup is complete, a long vibration will occur.

 

10. Bluetooth Connection (Pairing)

  • Bluetooth is fully reset once QwertyCase vibrates.

 

12. Typing letters/characters

  • The six function keys on the top of QwertyCase from the right are Shift, Space, Command, Voice over, Space, and Delete. Use your left and right thumbs to press the keys.
  • The text entry keys on the back of QwertyCase are pressed using the remaining eight fingers.
  • Symbol change key, language change key, and edit mode key are available. They are next to “K” and “L” on the outer side. Corresponding vibrations indicate the product’s current state.
  • Use the language change key to type in other languages such as English.

 

13. Dialing phone

Please move the mode conversion slide switch to change to calling mode. A long vibration will occur. The key arrangement is the same as landline phones, and therefore convenient to use.

The top row is 1,2,3 and the next row is 4,5,6.
