iOS and iPadOS
Hi everyone, I am a relatively new user to IPhone and IOS, so please forgive me if this question has been answered before. Whenever I get a notification like a new mail message, text message, missed phone call etc, and my screen is locked, teh sound for that particular item plays and then voiceover says "one notification" and then the time of day and then a few seconds later, it says "screen locked." Even when my phone is set to mute, it does this. I do have my notifications set to show on teh lock screen but I changed the voiceover setting to not read notifications on the lock screen and this is still happening. Does anyone know how to get voiceover to not read these when the screen is locked? Thank you. I am using an IPhone 5s with the latest version of IOS.

No, I didn't take them out of
Turn off View In Lock Screen
Apparently a bug with IOS8
Just the same question I had with this happening. It is so upseting to my privacy. I don't think there is a fix yet. What I do is turn VO off and then lock my phone. Answering the call becomes very challenging after which.
notifications set to show on the lock screen
Some other thread suggested that you need to turn this setting off on all the apps there. That way notifications will not be displayed on the locked screen and VO will not bother you by reading each notification. I am going to try this on my phone soon...
notifications set to show on the lock screen if you choose to disable these it will work just fine. Tried and tested. Settings; Notifications and for each app. just disable it. You will only get the sound alert no VO reading stuff anymore.
