This has been going on for at least 8 months or more. When I
connected my phone to my mom's car, whenever I would get in the
car, my phone stops talking to me. Voice over is gone and I can't
do anything. I can't text or anything because it connects to blue
tooth automatically. If I want to use my phone when I'm in her
car, I have to disconnect from blue tooth before I get into the
car. It's very strange. The only reason I have mine connected to
her car is so I can have my music when I'm in there.

We had the same problem but,
this is with my wife's phone being connected to the car's
blutooth. When connected to blutooth Siri will not read out /
audio directions when you ask her for driving directions.
What happens is that the phone switches to the car stereo in
the audio destination of Control Center and the audio
destination option can't be accessed
unless the phone is playing something. But, when the phone is
playing something from a source other than the iPhone option
Voiceover can't be heard.
The only way the sound can be switched back to play through
the iPhone is by someone sighted since Voiceover can't be
heard while the sounds are assigned
to play through the car stereo, speaker or whatever the hell
else it'll play through other than the iPhone.
Our solution is for my wife to turn off the iPhone's bluetooth
if she's going to ask for driving directions when I'm not with
her. When I'm with her we
just use my iPhone since I don't have it connect to our
vehicles bluetooth systems.
We spent an hour and a half with Apple accessibility over this
the other day and they were perplexed as we were as why the
iPhone now does this when it
didn't before. We don't know which update in the iOS 14...
screwed things up but, it most certainly did! When I pointed
out to the Apple accessibility
person what a safety hazard this is, people having to take
their eyes off the road to look at the map on the damn Iphone,
that's when she really started
seeing our point, especially when I told her if someone sues
Apple because they had to take their eyes off the road to look
at the phone.
Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Odd Issue With VoiceOver On
iPhone SE 2020
Originally, I had tried turning the phone on and off, but it did
work. I was using the Tribbit Blue tooth Smart Speaker. I resolved
issue itself by telling Siri to turn on VoiceOver and then turning
the speaker. VoiceOver came clearly through the speaker in all
aspects. then I turned off the speaker and everything returned to
normal. It is as if the iPhone was in some sort of search mode for
Tribbit and it had to sync up again in order to fully disconnect.
just my guess, but all seems well now. I tried turning the system
and off and the speaker on and off and connecting and reconnecting
no problem: go figure. Maybe it was a fluke of some sort and won't
happen again; or maybe if it does, at least I'll know how to deal
it--weird beasts these new fangled electronics!

Siri says: 'VoiceOver is already on.' At that point using
standard navigation gesture, VoiceOver works on the Siri listen
screen and if I move to the status bar, it reads the status bar
items with standard navigation gestures. But if I then try to
press the home key which usually takes me to the first page of
apps or back to wherever I was before invoking Siri, speech stops
