Google today released a new accessibility app called Voice Access. The goal of the app is to help people with certain disabilities interact with their Android device using voice commands. Google says Voice Access delivers a completely hands-free experience, allowing people to talk to Google Assistant, navigate through apps, as well as compose and edit messages. Voice Access supports more fine-grained controls when compared to typical voice command apps. For example, people will be able to use their voice to “click” buttons and controls within apps, or to scroll and navigate around the screen. Users can start with an “OK Google” command to open their favorite messaging app, select the text field, dictate the message, and then edit the message before sending it. Voice Access will also work for those without disabilities. Voice Access is available in English globally starting today. Other languages will be made available over time.
