My­dis­abled daugh­ter likes to watch TV on­my­iPod Touch but, ob­vi­ously, when she touches the screen it turns off and she gets frus­trated. Is there a way to turn off the touch­screen while view­ing video?

There is an op­tion to re­strict this touch sen­si­tiv­ity as long as you’re us­ing the lat­est Ap­ple soft­ware. In iOS 6, Ap­ple added a fea­ture called Guided Ac­cess. You can turn this on by vis­it­ing Set­tings, Gen­eral, Ac­ces­si­bil­ity and se­lect­ing it. It can be turned on and off in any app by triple-click­ing on the Home but­ton and it lets users dis­able the touch­screen, mo­tion or the Home but­ton.
