Expert's Review

"It's reading aloud!"

Reviewed by / May 24, 2011

TalkBack is a screen reader that provides spoken feedback when using native Android applications.

In the accessibility section of the settings on your smartphone, there is no one default. The easiest is to download this app, which reads aloud the various options that may arise on the screen. It doesn't read internet pages nor anything beyond your own phone's system menus and screens. The only and big exception are native applications, basically, Google apps. For example, when you start Gmail, Talkback reads the subject of each mail you tap; when you push any hardware button, it says which has been pushed.

We don't know how much useful this app can be to a blind person, or what's its actual usefulness anyway. What we can assure is that canned voice, even being well achieved, is quite annoying "Option, settings, accessibility"

If we've given it five stars is because we haven't found anything better app of this kind and it's a good start, a good preview of what lies ahead. We encourage Eyes-Free Project to carry on this way.

    Hey you don't want this app? Think you're phone is just fine the way it is now? WRONG say Google! Google's latest force fed down your throat (take it!) is here! More mandatory junk to ensure your phone is slowed down and laggy just in time for your next upgrade ;)

    This is not a app that I WANT. I can't get it to Uninstall or stop Updating. It may function as advertised but, I am not interested in having it on my phone, at this time.
