Appendix A    
Double-tap:  Activate the selected item.
Triple-tap:  Double-tap an item.
Split-tap:  As an alternative to selecting an item and double-tapping to activate it, touch an 
item with one finger, and then tap the screen with another.
Double-tap and hold (1 second) + standard gesture:  Use a standard gesture. The double-tap 
and hold gesture tells iPhone to interpret the next gesture as standard. For example, you can 
double-tap and hold, and then without lifting your finger, drag your finger to slide a switch.
Two-finger double-tap:  Answer or end a call. Play or pause in Music, Videos, Voice Memos, or 
Photos. Take a photo in Camera. Start or pause recording in Camera or Voice Memos. Start or 
stop the stopwatch.
Two-finger double-tap and hold:  Change an item’s label to make it easier to find.
Two-finger triple-tap:  Open the Item Chooser.
Three-finger triple-tap:  Mute or unmute VoiceOver.
Three-finger quadruple-tap:  Turn the screen curtain on or off.
Use the VoiceOver rotor
Use the rotor to choose what happens when you swipe up or down with VoiceOver turned on.
Operate the rotor. Rotate two fingers on the screen around a point between them.
Choose your rotor options. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver > Rotor and 
select the options you want to be available in the rotor.
The available rotor positions and their effects depend on what you’re doing. For example, if 
you’re reading an email, you can use the rotor to switch between hearing text spoken word-by-
word or character-by-character when you swipe up or down. If you’re browsing a webpage, you 
can set the rotor to speak all text (word-by-word or character-by-character), or to jump to the 
next item of a certain type, such as a header or link.
When you use an Apple Wireless Keyboard to control VoiceOver, the rotor lets you adjust settings 
such as volume, speech rate, use of pitch or phonetics, typing echo, and reading of punctuation.

Use the onscreen keyboard
When you activate an editable text field, the onscreen keyboard appears (unless you have an 
Apple Wireless Keyboard attached).
Activate a text field. Select the text field, then double-tap. The insertion point and the onscreen 
keyboard appear.
Enter text. Type characters using the onscreen keyboard:
Standard typing:  Select a key on the keyboard by swiping left or right, then double-tap to 
enter the character. Or move your finger around the keyboard to select a key and, while 
continuing to touch the key with one finger, tap the screen with another finger. VoiceOver 
speaks the key when it’s selected, and again when the character is entered.
