Accessibility features of @Voice under TalkBack
Currently the big text area of @Voice app, in the middle of the screen, has the following accessibility functions active, when a screen reader like TalkBack is active:
- Scroll content vertically with two fingers, like in any other text reader. When you stop scrolling, @Voice app announces, in TalkBack voice, the number of the sentence that is on top of the screen, e.g. "Sentence 26". The app will start reading from this sentence when you press the "Play" button. If TalkBack focus is already on the Play/pause button, just double tap any place on the screen to start reading from this sentence, double tap again to pause.
- Faster scroll in a long text - bring TalkBack focus to the seek control at the right edge of the screen (TalkBack announcement like "39% - seek control. Use volume keys to adjust".
- Short horizontal swipes with two fingers move you by one sentence - short swipe right with two fingers to go to the next sentence, left to previous.
- Long horizontal swipes with two fingers move you to the next or previous article on the reading list, or next/previous chapter in an ebook.
Also, starting with version 10.12.04 released May 4, 2017, @Voice will auto-resume reading aloud if interrupted by a TalkBack announcement, or any other voice announcement, e.g. from a GPS navigation app etc.
