You can also use Siri to turn some of these settings off, or on again, once they are enabled. You only need to say, ‘Hey Siri’, ‘Turn on VoiceOver’, this will launch that service for you and you won’t need to navigate through the app. It doesn’t work for all the settings but if it can’t it will offer to open the Settings app so that you can do this yourself. You can also ask Siri to open the Accessibility app.
