In this episode, Thomas Domville will guide you through the process of enabling the Sound Curtain feature. Sound Curtain, an accessibility feature introduced in iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, silences all audio on your device, including VoiceOver speech. This is particularly beneficial for Braille users who need to concentrate on their Braille display without any auditory distractions.
To enable Sound Curtain, Navigate to Settings > Accessibility > VoiceOver > Braille, and switch on the Sound Curtain toggle. Alternatively, Sound Curtain can be toggled on and off from VoiceOver Quick Settings, accessed by performing a two-finger quadruple-tap from anywhere in iOS and iPadOS.
