Supposed that we are in possession of a jailbroken iPad if we want to enable VoiceOver feature in the iPad there is not a Cydia package unfortunately.
We can anyway accomplish to this task manually following three simple steps:
Step 1 – preparation
You need to install and enable the OpenSSH service first. Once this is done you need to log into the iDevice via command-line or via Cyberduck or any through other SSH client. Unless you changed them for security reasons (as suggestes) the passwords for the root and mobile users are well known:
- username: root, password: dottie
- username: mobile, password: alpine
Step 2 – configuration
Once logged into the iPad you need to reach and edit (with ‘vim’ or any other text-editor) the file K48AP.plist at this path:
and add the following line :
as shown below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>capabilities</key> <dict> <key>voice-control</key> <true/> <key>720p</key> <true/> .........
Step 3 – conclusion
As last you need to reboot your iPad, after that you can activate the VoiceOver feature control, holding for a few seconds the ‘Home’ button.. and start speaking!!
