Excellent tool for the disabled and the impaired. Whilst I personally have no need for this application, it's awesome to see that Google is making attempts to cater to the impaired and the disabled... This sort of functionality - whether you use it or not - is quite literally "core" functionality in modern technology, so it's great to see that Google has not forgotten this.
Not suitable on all phone models This app instructs to turn ON accessibility feature and thereafter the phone begins to function for the impaired. After several tricks the phone was reset and the feature was turned off. From Google widgets voice based search is enabled but not able to send the same to other apps like WhatsApp.. Need a lot better instructions list and compatibility checks for anroid phones.
Since the last update, my talk back keeps turning off. I am legally blind, and cannot function without it! Please fix immediately!!!
New update ruined a once great and assistive application I rely on this application immensely and appreciate the manufacturers whom create such assistive tools such as this, however sadly, the newest update makes it rather difficult to utilise.After the update installed I immediately experienced speech lagging issues whilst attempting to text. It might not seem a big deal, but I assure you that it is frustrating when composing a message takes an hour. I'll be sure to rectify my bad feedback as soon as the issues are repaired. Thanks.
Trouble Having trouble with accurate words or it freezes and locks up and have to shut the phone off and reset. the microphone locks up and you can't take it off unless you shut the phone down
Horrible App This app is the absolute worst. I accidentally turned it on and it basically left my phone useless. Once it is on you lose the ability to scroll your screen left, right, up, or down. Because of this it was very difficult to get back to the app to shut it off!
