VoiceOver is the screen-reader that is built into all Apple devices. It can be complicated to learn by yourself, but with a good teacher and practice, it is a great tool. Using VoiceOver eases the frustration of using a smart phone for people with vision loss. And, it puts a whole toolbox of apps in your hand.
To use VoiceOver, you must learn a variety of gestures. These include taps, flicks (or swipes), finger drags, finger pinches, and finger rotations. You have to practice the gestures to get them right.
Let’s just look at one of these gestures to give you a taste.
This can be done with one, two, three or four fingers. Here are some of actions that are controlled by finger taps.
If you have an iPhone and want to try out VoiceOVer, you can easily turn it on and off. Just go to Settings>General>Accessibility>VoiceOver.
