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.

Talkback feels anti accessibility. I have never felt more out of control of an app in my life. There's no obvious way to navigate on a page when it's on bc it's using all the swipe motions for its own commands and turning it off once you've navigated away from the settings screen is panic inducing. I had to hit the screen randomly until I got an option for the voice assistant and was able to use voice commands to turn it off and regain control of my device. I will not be using it again.

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.

I have bad vision & sensitive to light. More often than not, text is the only thing thats really difficult for me to read. I primarily navigate my phone via my bluetooth keyboard. What I was hoping for was something to let me know where i am on the page & to have the read aloud option easily available. But no. This is is read all or nothing feature. Also, theres no option to save custom configuratons. So if you turn it off, everything is back to default.
