    ladies and gents,
    would anyone be able to help.

    this morning i was regularly using my ipad (email, web - i did not download any new app)
    then i started working leaving the ipad on my desk.
    after i while i wanted to check something so i opened the cover and when prompted to insert the code to unlock i realized something happened.
    basically a voice would spell out everything i'd do ("rotating orizontally", "lowering volume", "one" - when typing 1 one the key board to unlock it)
    i tried switching off and rebooting (keeping the buttons pressed for 10 secs) but nothing would change...

    i really do not knwo what happened, nor i know how to solve the issue.
    like this, the IPAD is not accessible nor usable!

    pls help!
    thanks.
    Corrado

    You turned on the Accessibility Voice Over option.

    Triple tap the screen and it will turn off (triple tap again and it will turn on)

    Try going to settings>General>Accessability and make sure that everything is switched to off.
