    Hi all

    I recently got myself the iPad 2 16gig 3G+Wifi. This is my first Apple Product.

    My 6 year old then turned on the VoiceOver command, which i cannot turn off as the screen is in password mode and it will not allow me to enter the password.

    Please help :-(
    :(
    Regards
    Philip

    Ok, don't panic.

    When you see the password entry keys, tap each key once to select it, then double tap the key to enter it. So if I had a passcode of 1234 I would:

    tap 1, pause, double tap 1 (see the entry field get filled)
    tap 2, pause, double tap 2

    etc.

    It should work the same way for a full password, only more tedious.


    There is another possibility worth trying first. Triple tap the Home button. If you have Accessibility set up this way you should get a popup that will let you turn Voice Over off.

    Try triple clicking the home button to see if it turns off Voice Over, or gives you the option to turn it off.

    I don't suppose you can switch between portrait mode and landscape well enough to get at all the buttons, if only the edges of them.
