using a bluetooth module emulating a keyboard you can send command+option+h i think. You'll have to activate voice over and then turn off the actual voice. I think this is how it can be done.

Isn't there a button that takes the phone to the home screen anyway?

Yes, but I want a wireless one to use Siri with.

Why wireless? I don't understand what your problem is to solve.
(but it sounds like you won't be able to do it)

I was able to figure out how to make the button, but now I have another problem. In order to pair the button with my phone, I need to enter a pin number. I can't enter the pin number because the button does not have any number keys on it. Do you know if there is any way around the pin number? Thanks,

you need to use SPP (simple pairing protocol)
I would love to hear how you implemented this...

PIN numbers are supposed to stop people who don't know what the PIN number is; that's how they work so that part is working normally.

You would probably need to jailbreak the phone so you can run an app in the background constantly so it will look for that input from the Bluetooth button.
