How do I only switch on text to speech on my Android phone and have all other accessibility functions switched off?
I'm dyslexic and would find it useful to have text read back to my that I've selected. However, this doesn't extend to menu items. I find everything else being spoken to me annoying. I'm not blind, just dyslexic and my dyslexics needs doesn't extend to everything being spoken.
On a work Moto G5, I see there is an option to switch on just Text to Speech but on my Note 9 all I can see if an option to switch on the voice assistant.
When I switch that one it wants to turn off secure startup. That doesn't sound very secure to me.
I did a search online for "turn off secure startup" "samsung" "voice assistant" and to my surprise only one link was returned and this was on how to downgrade android firmware without a PC!
Still at least there will be 2 links now I've posted this!
Samsung make the phone. The option is Voice assistant and the message that comes up is Turn off secure startup. Thus I would have expected more results!
Having done further research it now appears even Google are not dyslexia friendly, unless you also happen to be blind or partially sighted. You can't only have text to speech switched on. You have to have everything spoken to you, with all the navigation changed or nothing
I have asked in another forum but it seems it's going to be another thing I give up on.
Perhaps I should only restrict myself to older Android devices. Would seems shame to do so.
