"Stay Still, Squeaky!" - Ballyland Story App

Stay Still, Squeaky is a fun, interactive audio story. It is the perfect, playful, easy introduction to touch screen technology and basic touch gestures for children who are blind or have low vision. To enjoy this fun, interactive story, they only need to use two simple, ‘informal’ gestures: touch and swipe.

Squeaky, the bouncy ball from Ballyland, tries really hard to listen to his mother and stay clean for a visit to his grandmother. However, as the children are encouraged to interact with the story via the touch screen, Squeaky gets more and more dirty... Children can easily relate to the fun story, which is told through the high quality audio (narration, sound effects, soundscapes and song). This audio story is complemented with simple images and animations that are designed in bright colors and clear contrast.

A fun and supportive iPad app which young children can use independently, including those with a visual impairment.
