New Google accessibility app lets you completely control an Android phone with your voice
At this year's Google I/O event, accessibility and inclusive technology took a much bigger spot in the software lineup than usual. Google made its commitment to improving accessibility across all platforms extra-clear, and those promises are starting to line up with real products that you can download and use.
Today, Google has released a new Voice Access app for Android that provides a more complete and detailed version of smartphone voice control than we've ever seen before. Rather than limiting your interactions to preset commands through a digital assistant, Voice Access is designed to replace every tap on a touchscreen with a voice option. In most instances, it won't be faster or more convenient than a touch UI, but for people with limited mobility, Voice Access promises to be a game-changer.
