Three ways to enable VoiceOver on an iPhone or iPad

Have you just got a new iPhone or iPad? Or are you trying to turn on VoiceOver on a device you don’t normally use.
Here are three methods to turn on VoiceOver.

Method 1: Tripple-click the Home or Side button

If you have the accessibility shortcut set up, just tripple-click the home or side button to turn VoiceOver on or off. This may also work on a new device you are trying to set up.
If you have a device with a home button, tripple-click the home button and if there is no home button tripple-click the side button.

Method 2: Ask Siri

It is possible to ask Siri to turn VoiceOver on or off. To do this, just open Siri and ask it to turn on VoiceOver.
This might be helpful on a device with no home button shortcut set up.

Method 3: Use Settings

You can turn on VoiceOver from Settings > Accessibility > VoiceOver.
You will need to get a sighted person to do this and this is why we have left it until last, but if nothing else works you may need to ask a sighted person to go to Settings and turn on VoiceOver.
