Android Smart Phone Accessibility and Apps on Such A Site

I am providing information on this page for users of an Android Mobile Smart Phone who have a Visual Impairment or are Blind. Because I am not a user of Androidís, I am providing the below links to videos and websites which have been shared with me. In addition, there are a few which I found by researching Androids with a Visual Impairment on the Internet and through several known authorities on Accessibility of Smart Phones. If any reader has other information on this topic to share, please do write me at:

Be My Eyes is an app which connects a visually impaired or blind user with a sighted volunteer. The volunteers are located across the world which makes someone available 24/7 days a week. The user can simply launch the app and select the option to be connected to the next available person. When that person comes on, the user can ask them to literally be their eyes to read things, find things, identify things and so on. To get this app click or enter on this link which takes you to Be My Eyes on the Google Play Store.

Accessible Editor Talkback, Philosophy

This explanation of the app comes from the website of the American Foundation for the Blind. Philosophy produces a number of apps for making standard mobile features more accessible (others include a phone dialer, SMS text app, and a reading app). Accessible Editor (free, Android 4.0 and later) lets you enter text via the keyboard or with your voice. Edit and view what you enter using one of several large font sizes, or have it read to you. You can choose which speech engine and voices you want to apply, as well. Combine with the same developer's Accessible Keyboard, which is also free, to get an extra-large QWERTY keyboard.

 

Voice Dream Reader is not only used by iPhone users but Android users too. It will allow the user to open electronic books, ebooks, ibooks, and text files and read them using its built-in screen reader.
