How I Record My iOS & Android Screens Despite Having Low Vision


Avatar-Medium.pngHere’s the second of this week’s videos.  It’s my first video response to a viewer’s question!  Are YOU that viewer?  🙂

In this video, I talk about the programs I use to record my screens for my Low Vision Assistive Tech videos. I use exactly the same types of software a sighted person would, apart from the addition of Apple’s built-in screen magnification accessibility feature  once I get to editing on my Mac. 🙂  Of course, it takes me longer to edit than it would a fully sighted person, but I get there eventually!  I do all my filming, screen capturing & video editing myself.  No sighted people were harmed in the production of this blog or video!  😉

To date, this video is the most ambitious project I’ve undertaken thus far, as it includes multiple video sources overtop of primarily one audio source, plus a few extra bits of audio thrown in as a last minute addition.  I have a whole new respect for people who edit complex video for a living, because this stuff takes a LONG time, even for sighted folks, so you can imagine how long it takes if you’re using screen magnification & only seeing part of the screen at a time!

  1. Love your videos! Can you make a step-by-step video on how you use Screen Flow? I’m looking for video tutorials to post on Paths to Technology website for teachers and students with visual impairments. I’m interested in talking with you directly. Thanks!

    1. Hi Diane! Thanks so much for your kind words! It makes my day to hear people are enjoying my videos, as they are a lot of work behind the scenes! 🙂 I have a few other video request I’ll be working on over the coming weeks, but definitely, I can put something together. It may be several weeks, though. Just a heads up, if you’re going to have students use ScreenFlow, make sure it’s on a newer Mac, as it will run optimally on newer machines. Believe me, i’m talking from personal experience! 🙂 To contact me directly, you can send a direct message to me through, Twitter @B1indMice or you can email me at
