Google's Voice Access App Lets You Control Your Phone Entirely Hands

Google's Voice Access App Lets You Control Your Phone Entirely Hands

Google's Voice Access app highly relies on the numbers assigned to option across the user interface.

The service allows you to navigate through apps, compose and edit text, and talk to Google Assistant.

The best part of Voice Access might be that it's insanely easy to start and stop once you've installed it and given it Accessibility permissions. Besides, the users can also communicate with Google assistant and can perform actions like tapping a button or scrolling the screen.

It recommends that you activate the "Ok Google" detection from any screen, get the Google Now Launcher and download a language for offline speech recognition. Rather than limiting your interactions to preset commands through a digital assistant, Voice Access is created to replace every tap on a touchscreen with a voice option. Tap the icon, and the tool issues a prompt to turn on Voice Access through Accessibility in Settings.

Google's latest app gives Android users the ability to control every aspect of their device in a purely hands-free manner using just their voice.

This is great news for people with disabilities. Here is the list of some other voice commands that can be used on Voice Access. Voice Access is a 10 MB app that everyone should download and play with at least once, because - heaven forbid - if you break your hands in a vehicle crash or a workplace accident, Voice Access might become the most important app on your phone. It also ties into Assistant for text input - highlight a text field and start speaking for instant voice to text. If one desires to edit the message, he/she can do so by using phrases like "replace tomorrow with Saturday" or "delete the line".

There are many other commands available, and if you want to view them all you need to check out the Support Page.
