SWITCH OFF VOICEOVER: WHEN YOUR IPHONE OR IPAD WON’T STOP TALKING

VoiceOver for iOS is a very helpful assistive technology for blind iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users. Unlike screen readers for many other situations, which cost hundreds of dollars, it’s built right into iOS. Unfortunately for sighted users, occasionally people turn in on without meaning to and the results can be confusing …
It’s probably VoiceOver if your iDevice won’t stop reading what’s on-screen in a computer-generated background voice, and you see a black line around what you touch like this:
My iPhone lock screen - note the black VoiceOver outline around the time display at the top.
My iPhone lock screen – note the black VoiceOver outline around the time display at the top.
The good news is that turning VoiceOver on and off isn’t too hard! There are a few different ways though, so read on until you find one that will work for your situation.

Shortcut: The Home Button

It may or may not be set up for your device, but the first thing to try is to triple-click your home button. This has to be done quite fast so you may need to try it several times before it’s recognised – I always have a bit of trouble with it.
If you hear “VoiceOver off” then you’ve done it!
If this does work, be aware that the triple-click works to turn VoiceOver on as well as off. To disable it, check Settings > General > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut and uncheck everything there – that will stop VoiceOver from being triple-clicked on next time.

Shortcut 2: Use Siri

Hold down your home button until Siri is triggered, then say “Turn off VoiceOver” or similar.
If Siri says “OK, I turned off VoiceOver” then you’re all set.

Turning Off VoiceOver With iTunes

If you have a computer running iTunes handy that’s definitely the easiest way to turn off VoiceOver – plug in your device and click on “Configure Accessibility…” at the bottom of the device pane in iTunes:
iTunes device pane showing accessibility button
iTunes device pane showing accessibility button
You should now see the accessibility configuration window – make sure that “Neither” is selected for seeing, as shown here:
iTunes device accessibility settings. The radio button shown needs to be set to "neither" to turn VoiceOver and Zoom off.
iTunes device accessibility settings. The radio button shown needs to be set to “neither” to turn VoiceOver and Zoom off.
Then click “OK” to close the accessibility pane and synchronise your device as normal.
Once the synchronisation has finished, your device will have VoiceOver switched off.

Turning Off VoiceOver From Your Device

If you don’t have a computer running iTunes handy, you’ll have to turn off VoiceOver by navigating through the device to find it. This isn’t nearly as hard as it sounds, luckily!
There are only a few things you need to know about VoiceOver, really:
  • You can ignore everything it VoiceOver says while doing this – no need to listen to the voice at all.
  • Your ‘Home’ button will still work normally, so use that to get back to somewhere you recognise if you get stuck or go into the wrong thing.
  • When you would normally tap or touch anything to open it, do just the same: you need to tap it once – you’ll see the black box surround the thing you want – and the double tap to activate it.
  • If you need to scroll, use three fingers side by side instead of just one. Your scrolling will go in very small increments but it will work.
You need to get to Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver and switch the toggle to “off” to turn off VoiceOver.
I’ll walk you through the exact sequence of movements you’ll need to do that starting right from your locked iPhone, following the rules above:
Turn the device on. Tap the ‘swipe to unlock’ bar and then double tap the same spot to unlock your phone:
iPhone lock screen and black VoiceOver outline around the unlock button. Tap then double-tap where the black unlock screen is.
iPhone lock screen and black VoiceOver outline around the unlock button. Tap then double-tap where the black unlock screen is.
If you have a passcode, single then double-tap each number or letter in turn. Your phone should now be unlocked.
If you aren’t already on your home screen, press your home button until you get back there.
If you need to go to a second page, for example if your Settings app isn’t on your first home screen page, use three fingers to swipe towards the left instead of just one like you would normally use. Find the right page now.
Swipe left with three fingers to move to the next screen of your home section using VoiceOver.
Swipe left with three fingers to move to the next screen of your home section using VoiceOver.
If your Settings app is in a folder, open the folder by tapping once on it, then double tapping.
Open the Settings app also by touching it once, then double tapping.
iPhone settings app opened, with black VoiceOver cursor highlighting the word "Settings" at the top.
iPhone settings app opened, with black VoiceOver cursor highlighting the word “Settings” at the top.
Scroll down using three fingers until you can see the “General” heading, then open that by touching and then double tapping it.
In the iPhone Settings up, swipe up with three fingers until the "General" heading is visible.
In the iPhone Settings up, swipe up with three fingers until the “General” heading is visible.
Open the “Accessibility” heading by again touching and then double tapping it.
Touch the VoiceOver heading and then double tap to open.
Your screen should now look like this:
VoiceOver settings are now open, you're nearly done!
VoiceOver settings are now open, you’re nearly done!
Tap the line near the top which says “VoiceOver” and has the toggle switch, then double-tap it to toggle the setting to the off position.
You’ve done it, VoiceOver should now be off. Give yourself a pat on the back and go have a coffee to celebrate!

The Motorola Moto G and Moto G 4G offer up the usual array of messaging capabilities, but thanks to the inclusion of Android Lollipop/Android 4.4.2 (and Android 4.3 before them) you get not one, but two text messaging clients.
http mos futurenet com techradar art mobile phones Motorola Moto 20G Screenshots KitKat Interface 02 210 100 jpg
There's the stock Messaging application which will be familiar to anyone who has used an Android phone in the past. It's a minimalist, intuitive interface with a list of all your message streams and options at the base of the display to create a new SMS, search your current messages and a basic menu.
Profile pictures are pulled through from contact cards which makes the app look a little better - although the lack of Facebook and Twitter integration means you'll still end up with a lot of blank tiles.
This is all very well and good, but Google is looking consolidate messaging apps by bringing together SMS and what was known as Google Talk into the Hangouts application.
In terms of text messages Hangouts works in a very similar way to the standard Messaging app, albeit with a slightly different look. But mixed up in your text messages are also instant messaging streams, allowing you to talk to more people from a single app.
Talking of things coming in twos, you're also treated to two email clients on the Moto G and Moto G 4G, with the Gmail app living alongside the standard Email offering.
http mos futurenet com techradar art mobile phones Motorola Moto 20G Screenshots KitKat Interface 02 210 100 jpg
If you only deal with Google's email setup then you can completely disregard the stock Email app and focus all your efforts on the intuitive Gmail client.
From here you can manage multiple Googlemail accounts, with an attractive and colorful interface making it a seamless and pleasing experience.
Those of you with other accounts outside of the search giant's remit will have to go to the stock Email app where you'll be able to sign in to all manner of addresses - you can even stick your Gmail accounts in here.
There's a unified inbox on offer, allowing you to see all your messages in one place, but you can also filter by account if things start to get a little confusing.
HTML emails load in a fully zoomed out view in both apps, allowing you to easily navigate to the area you want without a lot of frantic scrolling.
The Moto G and Moto G 4G look set up for the younger generation with a low price and interchangeable covers, so I was a little puzzled when I found Motorola hadn't pre-installed the likes of Facebook and Twitter.
http mos futurenet com techradar art mobile phones Motorola Moto 20G Screenshots KitKat Interface 02 210 100 jpg
It's not a huge issue, as a quick trip to Google Play quickly resolves this, but it is a little frustrating. Although with Google breathing down its neck, perhaps these pre-installs were out of the question for the Moto G and Moto G 4G.
In terms of an input method you get the stock Android keyboard, which is a serviceable offering with word prediction and auto-correct, although I'd still recommend downloading a third party option such as SwiftKey if you're planning on doing a lot of typing.
The responsive 4.5-inch touchscreen aids typing speed, and provides enough space to ensure the keys are not cramped. Rotating the Motorola Moto G 90 degrees will see the keyboard adjust to the landscape view, giving you larger keys.
