TD Pilot - Setting up AssitiveTouch in the iPad iOS

AssistiveTouch is designed for people who have difficulty touching the screen. The AssistiveTouch menu allows you to do "touch" functions, such as tap and scroll, using eye gaze. It also provides gaze-accessible shortcuts to things like the Home screen and App Switcher, typically accessed through gestures. AssistiveTouch is used for access via eye gaze in all iOS apps, except TD communication apps, including TD Talk and TD Snap.
 
NOTE: AssistiveTouch is not intended to be used for TD Talk and TD Snap. The TD Talk and TD Snap apps allow for eye gaze input without AssistiveTouch enabled.
