    Since changing to iOS7 like others I have been interested in the new features.
    One such feature is the 'Switches' by using Left or Right Head Movement to control your screen.
    However, of the videos I have watched that demonstrate the ability I have noted that my menu system is different to those that show the procedure.
    Further, as my selectable menus are different it does not allow me to select any of the Head Movements offered.

    Here is a screen shot of my Switch Control panel. Note the absence of being able to select the Head Movements...

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Gabriel. Unfortunately it does not help with this particular query.
    I can not find any reference to Head Movement control.

    I will have another search through YouTube to see if anyone else has demonstrated the use and see if I can see what is causing the differences in my screen to that showed in the video I saw earlier.
    Here is the link that demonstrates the menu that is different to the one I showed above. It is seen in the first video.

    If I find the answer I will come back.

    I could be wrong but it says here that you need an adaptive accessory.....

    Maybe that screen only looks like that if you have such an accessory?

    There is no accessory in the video demonstration Gabriel.
    All the presenter did was open Settings then went to the Switch Control..
    At that point her iPad screen settings is totally different from my selection.

    Even when she finished setting up her iPad for Left & Right Head Movement there were no other accessories used.
    All she did was turn her head left/right to make the iPad select items, then open/close screens etc.
