Voice Access Comes to Android

Google is working hard to make their devices appeal to people who have trouble using technology. This is perhaps due to disabilities or other challenges and Google has several ways that they are tackling this. Their latest effort is called Voice Access and it's currently in Beta form. This allows a user to speak to their device and have it do many other things that have never been possible before. Voice Access allows you to perform functions such as scrolling, opening a browser nad much, much more.

We recently launched Voice Access Beta, an app that allows people who have difficulty manipulating a touch screen due to paralysis, tremor, temporary injury or other reasons to control their Android devices by voice. For example, you can say “open Chrome” or “go home” to navigate around the phone, or interact with the screen by saying “click next” or “scroll down.”
