When TalkBack is turned on, you have the option to use the Explore by Touch feature. Explore by Touch describes each item that your finger moves over on the screen.
To turn on this feature, go to Settings > Accessibility > Explore by touch, slide the switch to the On position, and then touch OK. Note that Talkback must be turned on for Explore by Touch to be available.
Each action you take with your finger alerts you with spoken feedback, as well as vibration and sound (if enabled).
To navigate your phone using Explore by Touch, you can:
- Explore your screen using one finger to hear what icons and buttons are on the screen and can be selected.
- After finding icons and buttons, touch once to open apps, menus, and more.
- By swiping with two fingers, you can change screens and scroll within lists.
If the content extends beyond the screen and can be scrolled, your phone alerts you with a rising tone. As you scroll, you will hear ascending and descending tones to let you know your position within the list.
