my iPad is talking to me and does not allow scrolling or basic commands - fields appear highlighted and iPad voices over each command.  Any suggestions on fixing this?

    Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver and turn this OFF.

    You have VoiceOver (one of the accessibility features) 'on'. Try triple-clicking the home button and see if that turns it off, and if it does you can then change what a triple-click does via Settings > General > Accessibility > Triple-Click Home.


    If that doesn't turn it off then you can either turn it off directly on the iPad (you need to use a tap-to-select and then double-tap to activate process and 3 fingered scrolling) to go into Settings > General > Accessibility and turn VoiceOver 'off', or you can do it by connecting to your computer's iTunes :
