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!
How to Enable and Use Touch Accommodations on HomePod
Step #1. Open the Home app on your iPhone or iPad.
Step #2. Now, tap on Rooms tab at the bottom.
Step #3. Next, head over to the Room that contains your HomePod. Then, long press (or firmly press) on the HomePod icon.
Step #4. Tap on Details.
Step #5. Scroll down and tap on Accessibility.
Step #6. Next up, tap on Touch Accommodations. Then, turn on Touch Accommodations.
Step #7. Up next, you can adjust hold duration, ignore repeat, and tap assistance as per your need.
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.
