Please Add a TalkBack Widget! Much improved from 4 years ago! Thank you for improving this app. My only pet peeve now is that there is no TalkBack widget and the two-step shortcut in stock Android on a Nexus 6p is rather cumbersome, and if you don't time it right you accidentally end up turning the phone off! Please add a widget so that low vision users can toggle Talkback on and off with the press of ONE button, or add the ability for users to turn TalkBack on and off with Google Now.
I don't need it but... I can't imagine how much of a pain in the rear it would be to get it if I DID need it, and it WASN'T pre-installed. Take note hardware makers: THIS kind of "bloatware" is the ONLY acceptable kind. Stop filling phones and computers with the other crap that isn't accessibility related; if we want that stuff, we can get it ourselves.
I might need it someday. The thing with bloatware? You can't get rid of it. This? Not bloatware. If I needed it, it would be great to have it on the go, without having to depend on someone else. As for the people who don't need it... Well, uninstalling takes much less time than complaining. Now, if you're having trouble with crashes or functionality...
Works better on android 4.4 I am not enjoying this app on my new android 5.1 it was working perfectly on my old phone but now I can't swipe the screen to navigate my grid or list display I have to hold the screen and move my fingers to navigate and as a visually impaired I can miss some options on the grid please fix this and it also calls my Dial pad digits unlabeled .
This App Doesn't allows scrolling. Since it Doesn't allows scrolling it makes you deaf, because you can't turn it off (need to ignore loud speaker or accept as you are deaf). It controls touch Screen so you need to flash your device to turn it off. Google has no concern about its users. . Text to Speech is Dependent on this pathetic app. So that is also useless. . You may say it is useful for blind people but that is absolutely wrong perception. If they are not able to scroll smoothly, how? . Extremely useless app. Prefers 0 star Rating.
Forced on to my new Sony phone. Enabled it by being given wrong advice, and turned my phone almost into a brick, spent many hours trying to disable it, and return phone to normal function. The Developer gives no warning that it can cripple phones as it is know to do. Also through poor Google Android OS design issues, takes up valuable limited room on device, and have no way of getting rid of it except for rooting device. When phone warranty is up, I will be rooting phone to get rid of this and other Google "force-ware".
