Learn how to use Voiceover on your iPad Mini 2. VoiceOver describes aloud what appears onscreen, so you can use iPad without seeing it.
Voice Over tells you about each item on the screen as you select it. The VoiceOver cursor (a rectangle) encloses the item and Voice Over speaks its name or describes it.

When you go to a new screen, VoiceOver plays a sound, then selects and speaks the first item on the screen (typically in the upper-left corner). Voice Over also lets you know when the display changes to landscape or portrait orientation, and when the screen becomes dimmed or locked.
Note: VoiceOver speaks in the language specified in International settings, which may be influenced by the Region Format setting in Settings > General > International. Voice Over is available in many languages, but not all.
