Ability to change the sounds you hear in voiceover

iOS & iPadOS

Hi. ☺️

So, as it stands right now with the current version of iOS, you have the ability to turn certain voiceover sounds on and off, but I think it would be awesome to customize the sounds you hear. For example, if you want to change the item focused sound from that annoying click sound that sounds like smacking cardboard together to a sound more suitable on the ears that would be awesome instead of turning the sound off altogether. What do you think?

I'd love to be able to have activities with custom gestures too. Maybe some day.

I totally agree with you. I have actually done this, but it is only possible when jailbroken. I wish they would open up the operating system a little or better yet, create a sound schemes manager. Android does allow this sort of stuff but unfortunately, it requires root access on and iOS device. However, I'm certain apple could implement some sort of tool for this. I've wanted to be able to officially do this for years and years, because using and building custom sound packs is a lot of fun :).

So you've been able to create activities with custom gestures or to customize the sound scheme? I'm ot that interested on changing sounds, actually I feel better with less sounds, but customizing gestures for certain apps would be really great.

I agree completely. Personally, I'm not a fan of most of the sounds, and I've been asking Apple to do this for quite some time. I also don't like the idea of jailbreaking an I device. I know you can customize your ring tones, so I think the next step should be the ability to add more sound skemes so you can find something you like. Thanks.
