HomeaccommodationFree App Review: Speech to Text/Text to Speech

Android devices now come with a number of accessibility options. I now use the speech command all the time to navigate apps, since it’s just faster for me than hunting through them, but, as I wrote about in a previous entry, it can also be used for generating documents.

In this video, I demonstrate how to use both of those free accessibility options.

As for usability, outside of my occasional fumbles, due to not being used to filming as I use my tablet, it’s not that hard to operate. I don’t know what the length limits are, so you may be able to copy-paste chapters into the little dialogue box.

However, it would be nice if that text-to-speech capability was available within reading apps, like Kindle, the Internet and e-mail.

Overall, though, it’s not bad for being a default accessibility program.
