VoiceOver is integrated into the Apple OS X operating system for Macintosh computers and the iOS operating system for iPhone and iPad tablet computers. On Macintosh computers, VoiceOver and OS X include built-in support for over 40 USB and Bluetooth braille displays, and it can support multiple braille languages.

On the iPhone and iPad, VoiceOver allows the user to interact directly with the touchscreen by speaking the content of any area of the screen that is touched and providing instructions on how to access the application or content on the screen.
