VoiceOver is another feature offered by Apple that deserves a special mention. It reads out the words or text on your device. At the same time, it also provides descriptions of things that might not be visible on the screen. Some examples include telling you the amount of battery left, who’s calling you or reading the directions in a map. You can have your camera tell you how many people are there in the shot or let VoiceOver translate your messages and emails into text. You can turn this feature in by going to Settings and then general. Choose Accessibility and then turn VoiceOver on.
