Make Jamboard meetings more accessible

You can join and navigate through Hangouts Meet meetings using a screen reader on Jamboard. TalkBack is the Google screen reader included on Android devices. TalkBack gives you spoken feedback so you can use Jamboard without looking at the screen.

Note: TalkBack only works for Hangouts Meet on the board. It won’t verbalize anything in a jam frame.

Turn TalkBack on or off on Jamboard

Turn TalkBack on--On the board’s rear panel, above the lower-right corner, press both volume keys simultaneously. A voice will confirm TalkBalk is turned on.

Turn TalkBack off--On the board’s rear panel, above the lower-right corner, press both volume keys simultaneously. A voice will confirm TalkBalk is turned off.

Use gestures on the screen to navigate through the board.
