How to Use Touch Accommodations on HomePod

If you have trouble using the touchscreen, I would suggest you enable and use Touch Accommodations on your HomePod. It will help you use the smart speaker more comfortably. Moreover, there is also an option to customize this highly appreciable Accessibility feature as per convenience.

There is a feature called “Touch Accommodations” which is designed for the people who have trouble using the touchscreen. It basically changes the way your iOS device’ screen responds to your touch. Guess what? I feel happy to let you know that you turn on Touch Accommodations for your HomePod as well!

Moreover, there is also an option to adjust hold duration, ignore repeat, and even tap assistance to let you use the smart speaker more conveniently. Read on to know how it works!

Your take

Apart from Touch Accommodations, you can also use VoiceOver on your HomePod. For those unfamiliar, it’s a gesture-based screen reader which is primarily designed for the blind or sight impaired.

It’s indeed great to use Accessibility feature on the Siri-based speaker, isn’t it? Have any question or feedback? Feel free to let us know that in the comments below.
