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.

Voice access is a lifesaver I'm quadriplegic The only thing I can't do What's my tablet with voice access enabled Is click the little silver button to turn it on. Everything else including turning it off I can handle with voice access. It isn't always the most stable thing in the world I regularly have crashes in conjunction With Google chat but overall It works amazingly well. Lets me Stay in touch with the rest of the world. Keep up the good work.

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!

It is good when it works, especially the show numbers feature. I just wish the app wouldn't stop working randomly Most of the time, meaning I wish it would function like a normal app. It would also be nice if it could intuitively Pick up name spellings From previous text and emails versus having to correct every time. Otherwise, it's a great app. Just needs the ability to continuously learn and not crash . When it does work it saves my wrist from overuse as I have chronic rest tendonitis
