Google Launches Voice Access App In Beta Lets You Control Your Phone.

Google’s hands-free Voice Access application that you first heard about last year, seemed in beta form on Monday.

Finally, Google has discovered Voice Access in beta, a new accessibility app that permits users to control their phone using their voice. With Voice Access, user can use a wide variety of voice commands like “open Chrome” to bring up the browser or “go home” to go to the home screen.
Voice Access allocates all objects on a screen with a number, when allowed. A user can simply command the phone to open a select app, perform a specific function, or swipe through any app using their voice. Any application is supported, making it perfect for those people who cannot use their hands as others normally would.

In a post on the Google blog (via AndroidPolice), the company wrote: 

“We recently launched Voice Access Beta, an app that allows people who have difficulty manipulating a touch screen due to paralysis, tremor, temporary injury or other reasons to control their Android devices by voice.
“For example, you can say “open Chrome” or “go home” to navigate around the phone, or interact with the screen by saying “click next” or “scroll down.”

In the blog post-Google also, discuss its other efforts in the accessibility field. The search giant has announced an Accessibility Scanner tool for Android to give developers test their own apps and receive recommendations on approaches to improve accessibility. Android N beta update now comes with the Vision Settings feature to allow users control settings such as magnification, display size, font size, and TalkBack. 

For Chromebooks, Google has brought a new beta version of ChromeVox screen reader. The tech giant added that its Google Docs also allow users type, edit, copy or insert the table using voice commands, something which it announced in February this year.
