About this app

Voice Access helps anyone who has difficulty manipulating a touch screen (e.g. due to paralysis, tremor, or temporary injury) use their Android device by voice.

Voice Access provides many voice commands for:
- Basic navigation (e.g. "go back", "go home", "open Gmail")
- Controlling the current screen (e.g. "tap next", "scroll down")
- Text editing and dictation (e.g. "type hello", "replace coffee with tea")

You can also say "Help" any time to see a short list of commands.

Voice Access includes a tutorial which introduces the most common voice commands (starting Voice Access, tapping, scrolling, basic text editing, and getting help).

You can use the Google Assistant to start Voice Access by saying "Hey Google, Voice Access". To do this, you’ll need to enable "Hey Google" detection. You can also tap either the Voice Access notification or a blue Voice Access button and start talking.

To pause Voice Access temporarily, just say "stop listening". To disable Voice Access completely, go to Settings > Accessibility > Voice Access and turn off the switch.

For additional support, see Voice Access help.

This app uses the AccessibilityService API to help users with motor impairments. It uses the API to collect information about the controls on the screen and activate them based on the user’s spoken instructions.

I just spent a long time on the phone with a guy from Verizon helping me set up Voice Access. He said that it would help the Samsung keyboard microphone and the Google Gboard microphone to make less mistakes when I dictate. Both of them now insert words I never said and do odd things.. But as soon as I started dictating now it is duplicating whole sentences so I had to duplicating whole sentences so I had to turn it off!!!!!!!! Now you see it!!

I just downloaded this feature/app, so I don't have much to say yet, but I did notice one thing.. The Activation button that is available on any screen is nice, however, once you click on it to have it "start listening," the button disappears, so you cannot click it again to "stop listening." Can you make it so that button stays on the screen when it's listening, and then when you click it again, that it makes it "stop listening"? I think that would make this feature/app more user-friendly.

This is a wonderful app and it has given me the ability to use my phone again. I would give it five stars, but it is pretty buggy. For instance the microphone stops listening after 3 seconds and then takes 15 seconds to boot up again which is very frustrating. I sincerely hope these bugs are fixed soon so I can update this review and get better use out of my phone!
