Google introduces Voice Access for hands-free operation of your smartphone

Google introduces Voice Access for hands-free operation of your smartphone - GSMArena.com news

After completing the tutorial, Voice Access is ready to use and runs in the background of your smartphone.

The technology from Google was created to make app use easier for people with paralysis and diseases such as Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis as it goes much further than previous voice-command functions. The most important feature of the app is the option to tap buttons and controls within apps, or scroll and navigate app screens by simply using your voice.

"Everyone can benefit from hands-free support when using technology, but for the 62 million people in the USA with motor and mobility impairments, it can be a vital requirement.", wrote Google. This works similar to voice commands with Google Assistant.

These simple steps will turn on Voice Access application from the Settings menu. In addition to this, responding to commands and engaging in this mode keeps the Assistant in a continuous listening mode which means users won't have to repeatedly invoke it to start using it. The user is only required to say the number followed by the action to navigate through the phone. But, if new technology isn't accessible for everyone, like for the 62 million people in the US with limited mobility, it doesn't make life easier. Along with this, Google says, the app is developed for people with Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and spinal cord injuries. Here is the list of some other voice commands that can be used on Voice Access.

Voice Access has been made available through Google Play across the world.

Moreover, Voice Access supports commands like "delete a line" or "undo" which will have the effect of allowing you to start your message all over again.
