Touch exploration in TalkBack

Touch exploration is a TalkBack feature that allows you to touch your device’s screen and hear what's under your finger via spoken feedback and sounds.

To explore by touch, slowly drag one finger around the screen to move focus. You'll hear the icons, buttons, and other objects on the screen. When the focus reaches an item you'd like to select, double-tap anywhere on the screen to activate the focused item.

When you turn on TalkBack, touch exploration is automatically enabled. You can disable this feature or adjust your preferences in Settings > Accessibility > TalkBack > Settings > Explore by Touch. Learn how to change TalkBack settings.
