Options for Voice Over when the focus is on the Status Bar

A suspension bridge spans the logo with the acronym BVT in the middle. Beneath the bridge the words Blind Vet Tech appears. The bottom of the logo contains morse code reading TAVVI.
In this Blind Vet Tech Quick Guides, News and Reviews podcast, we demonstrate some options that becomes available when you place Voice Over’s focus on the Status Bar. The Status Bar is located at the top of an iPhone or iPad’s screen. While on the Status Bar, you can quickly check connectivity status, current time, and battery level. However, Voice Over is also to preform the following actions:

  • Three finger swipe downwards to bring up Notifications
  • Three finger swipe upwards to bring up Control Center
  • One finger double tap to bring the current page’s view back to the top of the page
