Magnification gestures

There are plenty of accessibility settings in Android that helps users to handle some of their difficulties all too well. Options like Color invert help people who are visually impaired to use the device with a lot more ease than the standard operation. Take a look at the following accessibility settings and use them as per your convenience.

Have you ever thought the home or the menu screen of your Android can also be zoomed in or zoomed out? When Magnification gestures are enabled on your device, this can happen in reality. Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Magnification gestures and turn it on. This enables you to zoom in or out with a triple tap on any screen of the OS.

Some situations may arise that you are in a rush and have very less time to actually see what it is that you are doing on your phone, you might sometimes end up tapping on other options than those that you wanted to. Here’s where TalkBack accessibility setting can come to your rescue. If the glass of your Android screen is damaged, but if the touch is responsive, you could then happily use this TalkBack feature if you are unable to see clearly what it is on the screen.

When TalkBack is enabled via the accessibility settings of the device, a voice will respond to you and speak aloud whatever that is you are tapping, enabling and navigating on the phone’s screen. Use the settings of TalkBack feature to have more control over what kind of content from your phone’s screen you think should be spoken aloud to you.

This is said to be helpful to visually impaired users.  Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Display Section and you should find Color Invert/ Invert Colors as an option to turn on or off.
