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.

The interferes with Google Assistant and also there's an icon on your screen that you can click to start using it and it is sitting right on top of something I use all the time and I can't get to it without turning on the voice access So it's always listening meaning I can't use the microphone to type out what I'm saying either on any of the apps I use that for. I had to remove it from my phone otherwise I couldn't use the functions I do enjoy about my phone.

It does many things right but there's a lot of problems that are bugs/flaws. It runs often actions twice which is terrible when you're on number mode or hitting back. Gestures are very difficult, eg you can't scroll partway in small windows or swipe away or double tap. There's no way to turn it off with a button on the screen, which is terrible for noisy environments. Formatting is poor and often wrong. Generally it makes using the device hands-free very frustrating.

this app is very frustrating to use. Sometimes it can be very slow, having up to 4 seconds of delay. For me it's also repeated commands frequently, for instance all say back And it will go back , then after a second it will go back again. However I am not going to give one star because I'm very glad this Tool is available, either that or not use my phone
