Interupting VO

iOS and iPadOS

How do you interrupt voiceover? My example is: I double tap to have a song to start playing, and VO says song title, how long it is, and then button. By the time all that information finishes, the song is playing. How do you stop all that if you don't need the information? On the computer when screen reader gets too chatty, tapping the control key stops it. Thanks in advance.

Hi Gail,
To stop VO from speaking, do a two finger single tap on the screen and VO will pause speaking. It's just like pressing the CTRL key on your keyboard.
