Google has renamed the TalkBack app to the Android Accessibility Suite. TalkBack provides spoken feedback for text or images on a screen so that blind or low vision users can navigate their devices.
The Android Accessibility Suite contains TalkBack, Switch Access, and Select to Speak. With the TalkBack screen reader, spoken, audible, and haptic feedback helps those who are blind or have low vision navigate devices without having to see the screen of their Android device.
Switch Access allows for device control with a switch assistive device, while Select to Speak lets users select something on-screen and have it read or described aloud. All these settings are available under the Accessibility menu in Android Settings and updated via the Google TalkBack app.
With version 6.2, Google is renaming the app to the Android Accessibility Suite, while adding a few new features. Talkback gets Focus management and Android TV improvements, while Switch Access features new settings and improved spoken feedback “for use without looking at the screen.”
