A Text-to-Speech Tool for Apple Users of All Ages
What is VoiceOver?
To get started with VoiceOver, a Mac user simply needs to press Command + F5. This will activate the VoiceOver features. You can easily enter a tutorial on this accessibility tool by pressing the space bar, of you can type "V" to begin using VoiceOver without any instructions.
VoiceOver is also available on the iPad and iPhone so users can seamlessly switch to different devices. While some features may be different on the iPad because there is a lack of a keyboard, it is still simple to translate the trackpad gestures to the iPad.
