What is TalkBack For Android devices and how to turn it on or off.
First of all, Talkback For Android is an Accessibility Service that helps blind and vision-impaired users interact with their devices more easily. When TalkBack is on, your device provides spoken feedback to help blind and low-vision users by describing what they touch, select, and activate.
Talkback is androids version of voiceover. if you’re familiar with iPhone and their screen reading software, talkback is androids screen reading software. both talkback and voiceover are actually very similar, most of the basic gestures are going to be the same. so if you’re familiar with voiceover, you’ll do well with TalkBack as well.
