How can I turn off VoiceOver and get back to normal ?!

As I follow the instructions how to turn off 'VoiceOver' in Setting on my iPhone, however VoiceOver icon get back on quickly after double click... (haven't upgrade iOS 8.1.1 yet)

  • Tried to do double click 'Voiceover' icon in Setting, but doesn't off and switch on back quickly..

  • Done press 'Home' button 3 times quickly, but Top page shows up later..

  • Done turn off the phone, the VoiceOver shows up with passcode screen..

What else I can do for turning off the annoying voice?

  • Also my iphone is using as prepaid. – Hanappy Dec 6 '14 at 15:36

    I commanded Siri to turn off Voiceover. Siri turned off it in 3 seconds!! She was useful. – Hanappy Dec 7 '14 at 15:35

Turning Voiceover Off

  1. Double-tap the Settings icon on your homepage.
  2. Use three fingers to scroll down to the General menu, and double-click on it.
  3. Use three fingers to scroll down to the Accessibility menu, and double-click on it.
  4. Double-tap on the VoiceOver menu item.
  5. Turn VoiceOver off

Alternatively, in iTunes you select summary and click Universal Access, then choose either Zoom or Neither rather than VoiceOver.

  • Actually, can't turn off Voiceover with double click. as I mentioned in Question... I think I need a resolution in iTune then. – Hanappy Dec 6 '14 at 17:32

I had the exact same problem after my phone was reset.

It was fixed after I connected it with iTunes via my Computer, and loaded a backup.

In one way or another iTunes seem to be the answer.


My sin was exploring what this voice over toggle do... Then it turned the screen off!!! I started taking screen shots to know where I am .. Then I reset all settings.. The screen light cane back but the voice over still On!! Then I did it with SiRi ... Tried siri to close it and Siri did it.. Do not ask me how :-) ..After one full hour of total frustration..
