Mute the speech on the phone with either a double 3-finger tap or try an m-chord on your Braille device.

Straightforward.  I found the books I had bought, and double tapped on the

the iPhone, again successfully.  I can now read the book, and Braille is in
contracted mode how I like it.  But if I want to read the book in Braille
without VoiceOver, how do I achieve this?  Reading Braille on an iOS device
is quite new to me, so please forgive the question if it appears pretty
