I have composed my email message and now I need to attach two documents to it before I send it. How do I do that?

To attach documents to an email using VoiceOver, you must send the email from the app in which the documents to be attached reside. This is often accomplished by tapping the Share button from within the appropriate app. It also means that, in most cases, it is only possible to send an email with one attachment. If the app from which you are sending the email does not allow for more than one document to be attached, you may need to send a second email with the second attachment.

If you have the gmail app, there is an option to add attachments from there.

From within the message body typing field, use the rotor until you find edit. Next you must swipe down with one finger to switch between the edit options until you find add attachment, then double-tap to go to the attachment selection screen.

Go to the edit option on your rotor. Then flick down until you hear add attachment & if you want to attach docs select this one & go to where the doc is, & attach it from there. Or flick to insert photo/video & choose 1 or more from your photos. Once you selected the photo/video hit the use button & you're good! It may need to compress it so don't be surprised if it takes a few seconds. Hope this helps!
