Hi Edward,

Try pressing the home button three times in quick presses and see if voice over 
comes back on. If that fails, there’s a switch on the side of the phone between 
the volume buttons, this presses from front to back of phone, try moving the 
switch to the front of phone position and see if that works. if that doesn’t 
work then I'm stumped.

Subject: [access-uk] Voiceover stopped speaking on iPhone



This morning Voiceover has stopped speaking on my iPhone 3GS and I don’t hear 
any clicks when I move my finger around the screen.  Also, there is no speech 
when I press the home or power buttons.


However, when I call my mobile number from a landline, Voiceover does speak out 
the number and the clicks have returned if I navigate the screen while the 
phone is ringing.


I thought there might be a problem with the volume and have tried adjusting it 
immediately after pressing the home button, but to no avail.


I’ve also rebooted the phone without success.


Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might try?
