Peyote Stitch Bead Reader
shown on the index page can be read out loud to you. If you're not sure, try a pattern. Most
browsers will support the pattern display and showing the next bead to use. But so far, I've
only found that Chrome will support actually speaking the bead color.
From the index page select a pattern. At bottom of page click on the Colors button to see what
colors are used. On most computers, when you select the Colors button the Colors page will open
in a new tab. For any color, you can change the name that is spoken, but not the actual displayed
color. You can, of course, use any color you choose when actually beading. If you change a color name
it will be remembered on your computer for 60 days.
Once you have all the names of the Colors the way you desire, go back to the pattern tab and hit the
Start button (you may also hit the space bar or return key.) If you have not previously used speech
on your computer it may take several seconds before
the first bead is actually spoken.

- If several beads in a row are the same color you will be told the number of beads followed by the
color. You can set the maximum that will be read
together in a row at the bottom of the page. Three is the default number chosen every time you load or
reload a pattern.
- You may find it helpful to know which direction a given bead corresponds to. If you left click on
a bead it will show you the pattern direction for that bead..
- I have not found a consistent way that people number rows in patterns with Peyote Beading. I picked one that
worked for me. The first row is at the bottom of the pattern. The first row has a total number of bead
that correspond to the pattern's total. Each subsequent row has half the numbers of beads that the first
row has. If this is not what you expect, try it anyhow. I think you'll learn to use it without much
- If an entire pattern does not fit on your screen you can always use your browser's Zoom
controls to give yourself a different view.
- If you come back to a pattern after leaving it the Next Bead will flash for a while when you first come back.
You may click on that bead or any other you wish to start with. If you click on Start you will be back at the beginning.
