Android Accessibility Suite App SCREENSHOT
Android Accessibility Suite App DESCRIPTION
Android Accessibility Suite is a collection of accessibility apps that help you use your Android device eyes-free or with a switch device.
Android Accessibility Suite includes:
• Accessibility Menu: Use this large on-screen menu to lock your phone, control volume and brightness, take screenshots, and more.
• Select to Speak: Select items on your screen and hear them read aloud.
• Switch Access: Interact with your Android device using one or more switches or a keyboard instead of the touchscreen – You can also use Camera Switches to navigate with facial gestures.
• TalkBack screen reader: Get spoken feedback, control your device with gestures, and type with the on-screen braille keyboard.
To get started:
1. Open your device’s Settings app.
2. Select Accessibility.
3. Select Accessibility Menu, Select to Speak, Switch Access, or TalkBack.
• For TalkBack, you can also press and hold both volume keys.
Android Accessibility Suite requires Android 6 (Android M) or later. To use TalkBack for Wear, you’ll need Wear OS 3.0 or later.
• Phone: Android Accessibility Suite observes the phone state so it can adapt announcements to your call status.
• Accessibility Service: Because this app is an accessibility service, it can observe your actions, retrieve window content, and observe text that you type.

I hated this app. It was like the app. Took over control of my phone, I tryed to get it off my phone and I text Google, TMobile and anyone who would help for 4 days and finally , I found out a lot of people were haveing the same problem. I did get it off my phone by the app. Person. My opinion is don't use this app. Till they fix the problems, or u may lose all control of your phone like me
+1 star because better than nothing, but honestly it isn't much better than having nothing. Regularly hangs or crashes the whole phone while Select to Speak is reading aloud. The only function I've had no problems with (so far!) is triple-tap to zoom, but you have to be constantly vigilant not to triple-tap by accident when intending to, say, type or backspace. Sometimes impossible to tap a button while it's zoomed so I zoom to see which is which then zoom out to select. Etc etc etc.. 🙄 HASSLE!
Very poor update. Was previously a 5 star review, but this update is awful. I realise many of the 1 star reviews on this version are just because the user didnt know what they were doing. But the bugs that I am getting are not acceptable. The main one is lists not auto scrolling, instead, talkback either wraps back to the top or jumps out of the list to the tabs at the bottom. I have to keep using the 2 finger scroll gesture which is beyond annoying.
Updated 3/30, 9//'19, 2/10/'23 ... Some of the battery saving and space cleaners I use tend to turn off the accessability for other spps, so I have to reset the affected apps in Accessability before they will function properly. KUDOS to the developers for an application that is small and effective ... I would be pleased if the application were SD Card compatible. ... Thank you for your attention, Charles(Charlie)Shafer in Clearwater, Florida 🇺🇸👍👍😅
A lot of reviews here are folks annoyed that they couldn't get Talkback to stop. I have the opposit issue. I'd love it if Select to Speak wouldn't close down after every paragraph! Just having an option to leave the player open would make this infinitely more usable. As it currently stands, you have to open it with a shortcut for it to read one sentence and shut down immediately. Then you have to do the shortcut again. This is very tedious when you want to select specific text in an article.
The last couple of weeks, when I restart my phone, live caption turns on. At the same time, when I use certain apps, my phone locks and I have to force restart it, leading to the live caption problem. I disabled this app, but the problems are still there.
When will you update TalkBack? That's what we are waiting for. There are some bugs in the update you just gave. There has been a major change in gestures. If gestures are set as a previous update, the cursor will not move from the slider. Seems uncomfortable using default gestures. Most blind people have the same habit; so we have to do something about it.
All good until it just stops reading !! You should keep reading all until I stop it I didn't tell this app to stop reading but I have to start over every time sometimes I hear stuff twice then I got start over every time!!! Start button and stop button on all the settings I tell it to keep reading also reading background keep reading but it never does
Too complicated Coming from an iPhone I used their voice feature to help me read my college text. This voice feature isn't fluid. It only seems to read one page at a time then stops. I read the gesture instructions for speed control I cant slow the speed down. Too fast. Then when I slow it down it's way to slow. I cant fine-tune. I stopped using it and is still in search of a comparable Apple comparison substitute.
I am a blind android user. I love this app. love the newer braille display support. but with this latest update; Talkbacks speech has started speaking in a very loud tone and will not lower itself when pressing the volume buttons. I have to manually go into my tts settings to lower the speech volume. I should be able to lower the speech volume with the volume keys. that always worked in previous android updates. it is happening with both google text to speech engine and eloquence.
I had been using the accessibility app for quite some time now. However after the last apdate it has been a nightmare. I mainly used it as a reading tool where I had it set up so that I could select what I wanted read straight from whatever was on my screen but now after selecting the accessibility icon which was at the butom of my screen, it now reads anything and everything on the screen. Also to continue reading a long article, I now have to deactivate it, then move forward. Will uninstall.
Since update I have to constantly re-tap the page. There have never been quality directions so I've had to learn by trial and error and a lot of time. The tutorial doesn't help me with what I need to know. Now that I had finally figured it out and was thrilled with it, it no longer works. I tried to undo the update but it completely removed the program. There is no other text to speech app that I can use in the Kindle app on Android. I have documents that must be read. Help!
I thought I have opted out of as s as possible, including offers for installing stuff like smart switch which unless Google's gotten in touch with Samsung Smart switch and fix whatever the problem was, otherwise I'm not interested in some stalling any more stuff on my phone that doesn't work and neither of the two will tell me what the problem was or if it was fixed or if it ever will be fixed, so about all I can say is it is nowhere tracking and spyware for your additional.
This Very helpful. But when you just want to read back one word. It read back all information. This good as I'm dyslexic but apple does it better because you don't have annoying button on the screen all the time. This app made me call emergency service because it froze the screen when it reading something back. And I was trying to stop reading something back to me. Which I find annoying.
I think it is not smart enough to be on a smart phone. If the intention is ease of access, it's a failure! Figuring out how to turn it OFF was a frustrating and aggravating experience! I made it to Google Play and tried to UINinstall the thing, but could NOT. I guess it's "necessary" . I truly don't need it, and if I ever do need a screen reader, it will not be this one! The AI voice is monotone and abrasive. I could have screamed!
Talk back is the best screen reader out there but in this latest update the interactions have gone really glitchy and when I double tap it makes the sound as if I have done a swipe on the screen. Changing the volume is awkward as well as I have to press the volume button and then actively find the accessibility slider
This is the worse app EVER, I can't uninstall it, didn't ask for it yet somehow when I pressed both volume buttons on my phone, Talk Back came on with a green thin box in closing anything I did a hard press on ( Including shut down) which I couldn't do. I finally got the phone to reboot and there it still was, 45 minutes later I got to the settings for apps and figured out the dbl tap to turn it off, so I thought 🤔 it happened all over again today when I accidentally hit both volume buttons. S
TalkBack made my elderly, remote, disabled mother's phone a BRICK for several days, I couldn't help as she could not describe what had happened. I was disgusted when I found out that this "accessibility feature" was the cause. It should confirm in writing and by audio that this feature will make the phone unusable for non blind users BEFORE turning on!. Awful implementation!
I;m experiencing lag delay when tapping to select and then double tapping to activate characters when using the birtual keyboard eber since the latest update. Surprisingly the talkback voices also sound slightly more robotic, Also, the button to rearrange quick access toggles is unresponsive when I double tap on it. I can;t comment on the bug fix to the braille keyboard cause I m not currently using that feature. My greatest concern is the virtual keyboard responsiveness issue. Thank you.
I don't love that I have to reopen the Talk Back reader and press play for the select to speech function on every single page of an ebook individually, but that's been my only real gripe so far. I love that I can change the voice pitch and speed of the AI voice to make it more comfortable to listen to. Also, the transcribe feature has been a lifesaver on a few occasions. Overall, it's a great addition to my phone.
