Do you mean that you passed 15 minutes restriction, but it still won't allow you to enter the code?
Customer Reply
Yes because i accidentally turned on a setting that im not sure how to get out of its only allowing a voice cimmand and everytime i press the button it brings a square that goes on when i press and only the voice over

Do you mean that you turned on the voice control after you got the restriction?
Customer Reply
No i was holding my phone whilst i was attending to something else so when i tried to log on it turned out that i had activated this setting . It normally shows up with something like zoom in zoom out in a squire box... something like that

Okay
*****, have you tried to ask Siri to turn off the Voice Over?
Customer Reply
Yes there appears a circle with 2 lines and the voice over saying passcode required and commands me to double tape and apply the passcode. Now im locked again for 15 mins. Siri is not responding to my request. Can this day go any worse?

Please try to bring up Siri by saying "Hey Siri", when you hear the feedback, say "turn off voice over". You should hear the feedback that it is turned off

Okay, let's wait for 9 minutes then. Please let me know once the timer will over and your iPhone will be unlocked

Correct
Do you know the exact passcode? Please note that after a few wrong attempts, your iPhone can be blocked permanently and you will need to reset it that will wipe all the data

In order to bring up the passcode menu, you need to put your finger on the line at the bottom, swipe up and hold the finger until you feel the vibration, then you can release it. When you will get the passcode menu. In order to enter the passcode, you need to first click on the number to highlight it, and then double-tap on it in order to enter the number. So if your passcode is "1234", you need to click on 1, then double-tap on it, then click on 2, double-tap on it, click on 3 then double-tap on it, click on 4, and double-tap on it. Every time you click the number, you will hear the voice saying what number is highlighted

I have done this several times exactly like you are saying now im locked out again. it now saying security lockout. Thanks for the help.

*****, that is the general guidance on how to enter the passcode with Voice Over enabled. If you got the lockout message again it means that you enter the wrong passcode
You should hear what numbers you enter. Make sure that you enter the right passcode
Customer Reply
Ok i will try it carefully. In the case its incorrect what do i do then?

Unfortunately, there aren't many options. You need to enter the right passcode. When you enter the passcode you should hear the number that is chosen when you click once, and you see that the circle is filling out when you double tap on the number, which means that you entered the highlighted number. So please pay attention to every symbol
