Your phone's accessibility features make it easier to use if you have visual impairments:
- TalkBack is a preinstalled accessibility service provided by Google. It uses spoken feedback to describe the results of actions, such as launching an app, and events, such as notifications and incoming calls. It also lets you set up these additional types of feedback:
Vibration feedback lets you assign vibration patterns to different actions on your phone. (Also known as KickBack.)
Sound feedback lets you assign sounds to different actions on your phone. (Also known as SoundBack.)
- Explore by Touch is a system feature that works in conjunction with TalkBack, allowing you to touch your phone's screen and hear what's under your finger via spoken feedback. This feature is helpful to users with no vision.
- Accessibility settings let you modify your phone's display and sound options, such as increasing the text size, ending a call using the power button, and more.
Users with low vision
If you have low vision and are only using TalkBack, go to Android 4.0 for Galaxy Nexus for general information about your phone.
To view Accessibility settings, go to Settings > Accessibility.
To control vibration and sound feedback and other TalkBack behaviors, go to Settings > Accessibility > TalkBack and touch Settings at the bottom of the screen.
