Accessibility options on your tablet
Galaxy Tabs are meant to be used by everyone. If you have some kind of impairment, you can feel assured that your tablet has built-in Accessibility settings to make it easier to use. You can turn on Voice Assistant for Vision impairments, subtitles for Hearing impairments, and Interaction control for better dexterity and interaction.
If you have some trouble reading the text and buttons on your tablet, don’t worry. Your Tab comes with Voice Assistant which will read everything you touch.
From Settings, search for and select Voice Assistant. Tap Voice Assistant, review permissions, and then tap Allow. Some functions may need to be turned off temporarily; tap OK.
To turn off Voice Assistant, tap Voice Assistant to select it, and then double tap OK.
Note: You can also turn on Google subtitles by tapping Google subtitles (CC).
Subtitles are extremely helpful when you are having difficulty hearing. Your tablet has its very own subtitles for when you’re watching a movie or binge-watching your favorite show.
From Settings, search for and select Hearing enhancements. To add subtitles, tap Samsung subtitles (CC) and then tap the switch. From there, adjust your desired settings:
Alignment: Change the position of subtitles.
Font: Change the font attributes.
Text size: Increase or decrease the text size.
Some people just function better when they use their hands. If you are one of those people, you can set up Interaction control to make controlling your tablet easier.
From Settings, search for and select Interaction and dexterity. To customize what areas on your tablet are inaccessible, tap Interaction control and then tap the switch.
The Assistant Menu is designed for individuals with motor control impairments. When you use the Assistant Menu, you can access physical buttons and all parts of the screen by simply tapping or swiping.
From Settings, search for and select Assistant menu, and then tap the switch to the On position to start using the Assistant menu.
You can navigate to the Home screen, open recent apps, go back to the previous screen, and more without having to press any physical buttons.
