Google’s new Voice Access app lets you use Android hands-free

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

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.

Significantly, the new interface overlays numbers on the icons and controls on the phone's screen. You can either tell Voice Access exactly what to tap or enable the number of indicators that will indicate places on the screen you can tap and navigate by just saying the numbers. Using voice commands, users can "tap" buttons within apps and scroll through items on their device. Google has a full range of commands on its support page for text editing and touch controls. This works similar to voice commands with Google Assistant. The user is only required to say the number followed by the action to navigate through the phone.

Google on Tuesday announced the launch of its latest app that helps give users who can not access a touchscreen due to certain chronic or temporary reasons hands-free access to their smartphone using only voice commands. However, the app could also be useful to those who simply have their hands full.

Voice Access only supports English for now, but Google plans to add more languages in the future. Her feedback, as well as the feedback from other testers, helped in shaping a new product which will be known as "Voice Access".

Google asserts that it concentrated on users with issues, like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury, arthritis and others to build up the availability application. It also ties into Assistant for text input - highlight a text field and start speaking for instant voice to text. The company says it was created to help people with debilitating diseases like Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis, but it should come in handy for folks who are multitasking or simply have their hands full. The app even allows users to replace parts of a text message using their voices by using commands like "delete the line" or "replace tomorrow with Saturday".
