How about leaving Voiceover on but muting speech with 3-finger double tap - 
would that work?

Wow I hadn't thought of that one, but if the side button rejects calls, then I 
don't have an answer.

All the best

Thanks, Steve, but how? This is my problem. When I press the wake/sleep button 
three times to switch on VoiceOver, the call is rejected in the process. Also, 
pressing and holding the wake/sleep button to turn on VoiceOver with voice 
command rejects the incoming call too. Mine is an iPhone 11 so it doesn’t have 
a Home button. Do you or anyone else have an idea on how to switch on VoiceOver 
without rejecting the incoming call in the process please? Alternatively, if 
someone comes up with a clever way of answering calls when VoiceOver is off 
that would be a good work around.

Best,

Amro

No, but why not just switch VoiceOver on, then answer the phone?  It's easy 
enough.

Subject: [access-uk] Answering calls with VoiceOver switched off?

Hi everyone,

Is there a way for us to answer incoming phone calls on the iPhone with 
VoiceOver switched off?

Naturally I would have VoiceOver switched off while using self-voiced apps, 
hence my question. To be honest, this is truly bugging me as all self-voiced 
iPhone apps are developed for the blind, but the developers do not seem to 
have considered this situation, and they have simply prioritised their apps 
over the primary function of the phone. Any thoughts?

Best,

Amro
