Google now making a software for its Android platform that will help in the control of some primary functions without actually interacting with an hardware directly e.g, touching. With your voice, you will be able to make these primary changes without any hassle according to a report made by the company. This accessibility software is called Voice Access and its designed mainly for those with disabilities so as to take advantage of core Android functions. Although the development is in a Beta version as of now but the company promises it will release the software on Google play store for free of charge later in the nearest future.
Now as the software is being made, it will help you open other applications, scroll with voice commands, and select items on the screen. “For example, you can say ‘open Chrome’ or ‘go home’ to navigate around the phone, or interact with the screen by saying ‘click next’ or ‘scroll down,'” the company wrote in a blog post. The system also incorporates a numeric system and so everything from apps in sch a way that there is a drop down where by each is assigned a number which when voice commanded will perform the task.
And as Google has it, Android should become more accommodating to everyone either disabled or not and Android’s close rival Apple’s iOS has similar functions which helps price with disabilities like vision, hearing, and motor skill impairments to still use its iPhone.
The announcement was made in other Google’s product line. And as it is, Developers can now run an Accessibility Scanner on their apps to get suggestions on how to improve the. with recommendations like enlarging buttons and increasing screen contrast for those with visual impairments. The company says it’s also introducing a new version of its text-to-speech navigation software for Chromebooks, as well as bringing voice-based editing to Google Docs.
This as a matter of fact will change the way people interact with the popular operating system which will therefore be accommodating to everybody equally.
