Voice Access provides voice commands in three categories (currently English only):
– Original and navigation from any screen (e.g. “go back”, “go home”)
– gestures to interact with objects on the current screen (eg “click next”, “scroll down”)
– Text editing and dictation (e.g. “type hello”, “replace coffee with tea”)
“What can I say?” Say you can access on-screen help? In voice access. You will see the full list of voice commands by going to Voice Access Settings and selecting “Show all commands”.
Steps to enable voice access:
1. Go to Settings> Accessibility
2. Select “Voice Access”
3. Turn on the switch
4) Complete the tutorial to learn how to use voice access
The tutorial introduces the most common voice commands (starting voice access, clicking, scrolling, editing basic text and accessing the “What can I say?” Menu).
Note that full hands-free interaction needs to enable “OK Google” from any screen. You can then say “OK Google”, “Voice Access” whenever you start to listen to voice access commands. (If you do not enable “OK Google” from a screen or do not support your device, a blue voice access button will appear on your screen. You can press this button to indicate that you want to start a voice command. You can press, hold and drag this button to get somewhere))
To turn off voice access, simply say “turn off voice access”. To disable it completely, go to Settings> Accessibility> Voice Access and turn off the switch.
