Hands full? Go hands-free with Google Voice Access
Those who cant see the screen clearly will love this new app, as it will make phone usage much easier. (EndGadget)
You know sometimes you just have those days where your hands were just too full, but you needed to use your phone desperately? Well, Google has a solution for it.
Google recently released an app called Google Voice Access, which gives the user complete voice control over their phone with just their voice. Though it is still in beta, this new app is not aimed at those who want a more luxurious life, but instead targetted at those who have accessibilty issues. Those who cant see the screen clearly will love this new app, as it will make phone usage much easier.
Accessibility apps have been on the rise recently, but one that supports complete voice command is still new. This app brings a discrete button control to the table, which is something new. The app assigns numbers to every button that it’s possible for a user to press. That way, you can navigate through both keyboards and websites by calling out the number visually associated with the element you want to interact with.
This comes right behind Google bringing full voice navigation to Docs and increased accessibility to Android N. This shows that Google is working on making their devices more accessible to those with disabilities. The app is still in beta, so if you want to be a tester, click here.
