This page is specifically for learning how to use Voice Over on the iPhone and iPad. It will cover the basics on using the voice over program, and also will teach ways to use various apps while using voice over.


First, to make sure people know what is meant vy Voice Over on the iPhone or iPad, let me give a brief overview. Voice Over is an accessibility program calling a screen reader which is made by Apple and installed on all iPhone and iPad. 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. Then the screen reader would read the body of the message and not all the header information unless the user asked for it to be read. It would also be able to allow the user to hear a word or name spelled out letter by letter if requested. It would allow the user to control the amount of information they would get from the screen, at a speed of their choice, and at a volume of choice. In most robust screen readers such as Voice Over, the user has a choice of various synthetic voices to choose from as some are easier to hear for each individual. I myself, use a female sounding voice on my laptop computer but yet use a male voice on the iPhone. I do that because, at present, the Siri Male voice on the iPhone has more inflection than any other of the voice options.


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.”
