Toggle Voice Control

Switches the Voice Control so you can issue commands to your device, giving you hands-free control of your devices.

Works great for Accessibility purposes, as well as simply using a device when you can’t reach it – I use this on my iPad Pro when it’s on the stand I have on my desk.
