I am trying to help someone with disabilities to turn pages in e.g. iBooks on the iPad. All I need for this is a single button, possibly one that iOS can interpret as an accessibility switch.
I have looked at bluetooth switches that are made for this purpose, but it always seems like I have to purchase at least two devices (that amount to the equivalent of about USD 200) even in this simple use case. We're not aiming to control the whole OS, just to turn pages.
Is there no way to just use $10 earphone controls as a switch instead? Jailbreak or not.
Or can pages be turned in iBooks with a paired Bluetooth keyboard? That would be great.
