Hi. Try double-tapping with three fingers, or you could actually try asking Siri to enable VoiceOver. You can also turn VoiceOver on from iTunes, but it really sounds like your speech is either muted, or the volume of the speech is turned down. You can try using VoiceOver gestures while you adjust the volume up. I'm sure if I'm missing anything, someone will help us out?

> Hi, list.
> I am using Iphone5 and I have upgraded to the latest IOS7X this afternoon. I did not upgrade it via Itune but directly with the phone. After the upgrade, however, the phone did not speak. I'm not sure whether the phone is on or not.
> I connected it to Itune via my computer and Itune told me the battery status that wasbleid% and then 96% a little later. I assume that the phone was on because Itune could report the battery status.
> Secondly, When I turned my Plontronics Bluetooth headphone on, it told me that phone 1 is connected.
> Since I am travelling out of country, thus my cellular services are turned off and I can not hear the phone ringing by calling myself.
> Furthermore, My phone brightness is set to 20% and the screen curtain is off, thus, a sighted person is not sure whether the phone is on.
> What should I do to get my phone talk again, please?
> Your help is much appreciated.
