About this app

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.
• 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, 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.

Permissions Notice
• 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.
• Notifications: When you allow this permission, TalkBack can notify you about updates.

Note: Switch Access has been removed from the Android Accessibility Suite. You can download the Switch Access app instead (

I went through 2 hours of hell trying to turn off this feature. It literally took control of my phone & I couldn't do anything even when I tried to turn phone off. It tells you to double click on an app, but couldn't get any app to open, power off phone, go into settings to turn off Talkback feature. I wanted to hear my word document read out loud, but nothing happened except pure irritation. I finally by grace GOD was able reboot, but it still was very hard to navigate phone & turn it off.

Terrible. Lost all microphone, speech to text, and some map functions. I can no longerer take or make phone calls due to the microphone not working. The only time the microphone works in if I pen the android accessibility app and use it's search function. I still haven't figured out what all else I've lost or now doesn't work correctly anymore. This is the worst update I've ever experienced.

The "Select to Speech" is a necessary feature for my day-to-day usage of my phone. The most recent update has introduced a new bug. Now several times a day I need to force quit and restart the Accessibility Suite due to a dead zone on the touch screen corresponding to the position of the hidden "Select to Speech" menu. I have reported this bug to the developers but I have not yet received any kind of response.
