This page is posted by Glenda Such, please feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the Links listed below, often you will find several from different sources which cover the same topic. I am doing this in order to give you as many ways to learn how to fully use the iPhone or iPad.
First, I want to make sure people know what is meant vie Voice Over on the iPhone or iPad, let me give a brief overview. Voice Over is an accessibility program called a screen reader which is made by Apple and installed on all iPhones and iPads. When engaged, the screen reader is programmed to read the information on the screen of a device in a way that is useable. By that I mean not just read each word from start to end of the screen, but read things in a way that someone who can see would read the words. For example, when an email program is up on the screen, the screen reader program would read only the information that was on the screen about the one email which has been highlighted or selected by the user. It would also be able to allow the user to hear a word or name spelled out letter by letter if requested. It allows the user to control the amount of information they would get from the screen, at a speed of their choice, and a volume of choice.
That is the extent of what I will explain in this part of this page. If you would like additional information about screen readers, see the link in the list below which will be titled “An Overview of Screen Readers.”
Here are the links for users of Voice Over.
