VoiceOver is a screen reader built into macOS, iOS, tvOS, watchOS, and iPod operating systems from Apple.

Using VoiceOver, the user can access their Macintosh or iOS device based on spoken descriptions and in the case of Mac, the keyboard. This feature is designed to improve accessibility for blind and visually impaired users and for users with dyslexia.

  • To activate the voice over feature, first click on the settings tab of the iPhone devices.
  • You can find the general title among the options opened in the Settings tab. After clicking on this title, the accessibility tab will open.
  • Click the Accessibility tab and tap the Voiceover banner. After you turn on the key symbol next to the Voiceover title, you can start using the feature.
  • Voice over feature will be active until you disable its use. You can repeat the same steps you need to do to turn off the feature and turn the key symbol off.

With the voice over feature, after you touch anywhere on the screen, the touched icon is expressed audibly.

It will be enough to double-tap to open the item you touched and receive information from. On devices with Voiceover enabled, you need to use three fingers instead of one to scroll the screen. You can double-tap with two fingers to close an ongoing action.
