Android Accessibility Suite is a bundle of accessibility apps that are specifically designed for your Android device. These apps include the following:

  • Accessibility Menu – this is a large, on-screen menu that you can use to lock your phone, control the volume and brightness, take screenshots, and do other basic tasks. The larger menu is easier to navigate if you have vision issues.
  • Select to Speak – Select to Speak allows you to select items on your screen, which will have your device read them out loud. Again, this is very useful for those who have vision issues.
  • Switch Access – This app allows you to use switches or a keyboard instead of the physical touch screen on your device. You can use camera switches to navigate your device using facial gestures. This is useful for a number of people, including those less able to press buttons on their device.
  • Talkback Screen Reader – This app allows you to get spoken feedback, to control your device using physical gestures, and to type with an on-screen braille keyboard. It’s a great app with a lot of support for a number of people.

You can easily use this bundle, once you have downloaded it, by going to your device’s settings, then selecting Accessibility, then selecting what you want to use in the Accessibility menu. Having these options on your Android device allows you to use them, in case you need these features to get the most out of your device.
