Android Accessibility Settings: 5 Hidden Options Everyone Should Be Using

There are a lot of hidden Android accessibility settings built for people with vision impairment
or any other disability that might make using the normal functions of your Android device difficult.

You’d be thinking that these features are designed solely for people with disabilities,
but in fact anyone can take advantage of them.

These are great features to be sure,  So Hers are 5 Hidden Options Everyone Should Be Using.

1. Magnification gestures

The magnification gestures accessibility option allows you to triple tap for a significant zoom. It can be disabled with the same triple tap.  If you tap and hold, however, you can temporarily magnify your screen and pan around. You just release to go back to normal. It’s a super useful feature once you start using it and it’s particularly great for those with vision impairment.

2. Text-to-Speech

Text-to-Speech is probably the most well known of all accessibility features – you may even use it already. All you need to do is have the Google Text-to-Speech engine enabled and then download the language pack you want.

3. Negative colors/Color adjustment/Invert colors

Do you miss the Android days of old when many devices had a black UI background? Maybe the grey-white menus irritate your eyes even at the lowest screen brightness at night. If that’s the case – we have a solution for you. Simply go to the accessibility settings and check the box next to Invert colors (called Negative colors on some devices). Voila! You now have kind of a night mode for your device.

4. TalkBack/Explore by Touch

TalkBack is awesome, especially if your eyesight is as bad as mine or you’ve lost your glasses. You can even use this if your screen has issues, as long as your touchscreen is still responsive. Once you’ve enabled the option, whatever you tap, press or activate will be spoken aloud to you. Explore by Touch is the same thing under a different name. The additional settings for TalkBack are enormous and definitely worth checking out further.

5. Interaction control

Interaction control can also be found in the accessibility menu. It lets you turn your motion gestures and screen timeout settings on or off, but the coolest part is that on some Android smartphones you can block off specific areas of the screen from responding to touch input, like the status bar or notification shade, for example.

Have you used any of these functions?
