Hello all. I just recently joined AppleVis because I will soon be getting an iPhone 8, and I may, no, probably will, have a lot of questions once I start using it. I've never really used an iPhone before, except maybe one time when I got to mess around with one for a few minutes just to see if I could type on a touch screen. Other than that, the only Apple product I have is an iPod Shuffle I bought in 2011, with the round ring of buttons.
Anyway, I have started doing some online research because I want to know how to set everything up when I get it. I was always told I'd need sighted assistance with starting VoiceOver for the first time, but after that I could use it just fine, as long as VoiceOver stayed on. But I read somewhere recently, I don't know if it was on this site or not, that VO could be started with Siri, and then the setup for the phone could continue from there. Is this possible? I thought you had to do some kind of setup process with Siri too. Or does Siri just work the first time you press the Home button, straight out of the box?
