You can turn off VoiceOver, the iPhone accessibility option that reads details on your screen aloud. All you need to do is triple tap the home button, go to settings, or ask Siri to turn it off for you.

Steps

Method 1 of 3: Use the home button

Turn Off VoiceOver on Your iPhone Step 1

Step 1. Press the home button three times

If you've set up tripleclick on the home button, you can turn VoiceOver off by quickly pressing it three times.

  • You can do this even if the screen is locked.
  • When you hear “VoiceOver is turned off,” you'll know that VoiceOver has been turned off.
  • To activate VoiceOver again, press the Home button three times and you will hear “VoiceOver is on”.
  • If you have multiple options assigned to the tripleclic (eg Voice Over, Assistive Touch, etc.), you will need to select the one you want to disable. Simply pressing the home button three times will not automatically turn off Voice Over.
