The android system has a number of accessibility option.  These options are specially made for those hard of hearing, suffering from a vision impairment or any other number of other conditions that might make the standard operation of your Android difficult.

These are great features for sure, but you can also take advantages of these features. I am going to discuss 8 of them most common features that could be find almost any Android device.

Note : The accessibility option is available in Settings menu.

            Ex – Settings> Accessibility.

 

1 – TalkBack :

When TalkBack is on, your device provides spoken feedback to help blind and low-vision users.

For ex – it describes what you touch, select and activate.

Note : after activate this option you need to double click on every nutton to perform.

 

2 – Switch Access :

Switch Access allowes you to control your device using configurable key configurations. You can move focus to clickable items and select items.

Simply this option turn your hardware keys to navigation keys, as shown in image the option appear by pressing the volume up key.

 

3 – Captions :

This information applies only to devices running Android 4.4 and higher.

You can turn on captions for your device and specify options (language, text, and style) for closed captioning.

To enable or disable captions, follow these steps:

    • Drag two or more fingers to pan across the screen.
    • Pinch two or more fingers together or spread them apart to adjust the zoom level.
    • Note: If you enter or exit an app when zoomed in, you automatically zoom out. Simply triple-tap to zoom in again.
  • Temporarily magnify what's under your finger by triple-tapping and holding. In this magnified state, you can:
    • Drag your finger to explore different parts of the screen.
    • Lift your finger to return to your previous state.
    • Note: Triple-tap for magnification works everywhere except the keyboard and navigation bar.

 

5 – Large Text :

The large text setting increases the text size on your device to the largest available.

To enable or disable the large text setting, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility.
  2. Select Large text.

For more fine-grained control over font size, go to Settings > Display > Font size.

The large text setting doesn't apply to the Google Chrome app, which has its own text scaling control.

 

6 – Power Button ends call :

As clear by name turning this features on the power button of your device will be able to ends all incoming and outgoing calls.

When this setting is enabled, you can simply press your device's power button to end a call. This setting can make it faster and easier to hang up.

To enable or disable this setting, follow these steps:

  2. Select Auto-rotate screen.

If you're using TalkBack, you might wish to disable this setting, since rotating the screen can interrupt spoken feedback.

 

8 - Accessibility shortcut :

The accessibility shortcut allows you to enable TalkBack quickly, without the use of sight.

To enable or disable the accessibility shortcut, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility shortcut.
  2. Set the switch to the on or off position.

When the accessibility shortcut is enabled, you can turn on TalkBack by following these two steps:

  1. Press and hold the power button until you hear a sound or feel a vibration.
  2. Touch and hold two fingers until you hear audio confirmation.

This feature can be useful if your device has multiple users. Use the shortcut on the lock screen to temporarily enable accessibility until the device is unlocked.
