Quick Tip: How To Enable VoiceOver Using The Touch Bar


The MacBook Pro’s new Touch Bar has changed the way users interact with their Macs. The Touch bar removes the traditional row of function keys for a customizable touch bar that can have different options based on which app is active. While this changes the way we use the Mac it still allows for VoiceOver users to still be productive users of the MacBook Pro. While the function keys are changed on this machine, you can still enable VoiceOver with a similar method to the iPhone. Here is how it works.

Enable/Disable VoiceOver with Touch ID

  1. Hold the Command Key
  2. While holding Command, tap the Touch ID sensor or the Power button three times

This method is a very simple way to enable and disable VoiceOver on the Mac which closely resembles how iPhone and iPad users enable and disable accessibility features.
