Touch Accommodations Inactive with VO On?

iOS & iPadOS

Hi all. Subject line pretty much sums it up. I'm trying to change some accessibility settings on my iPhone, in hopes of having a better typing experience. Is anybody else getting the message that while VoiceOver is turned on, Touch Accommodations are inactive? I just checked Apple's accessibility pages and they say nothing about this. So I'm wondering whether or not it's a bug? Tia for anyone's assistance.

You haven't specified why you have tried touch accomodations, but maybe it's not the right setting for what you are aiming for. If you need VoiceOver to respond to double-taps more slowly, you can adjust this in the settings for VoiceOver.

Thanks. Part of what I've been trying to do is get the touch ID setting to work on this site so that I can start downloading apps and have more practice. I somehow managed to do that earlier today so I think I'm good for now. The iPhone has just been a bit daunting to me, but I like it.
