Last Update date : Oct 28. 2020

TalkBack is a feature to aid blind and low-vision users. It gives spoken feedback on actions, including descriptions of what has been touched, selected and activated. Follow these steps to enable or disable it.

 

Note: if TalkBack is already enabled you must double-tap the screen before you are able to scroll down.

 

1. From the Home screen touch App Icon Apps.
