Ever wished you could just operate your Android powered handset using only your voice? Well, Google is launching a new voice feature that will let you do exactly that. Here comes Voice Access -- a functionality that allows users to move around their smartphone’s screen, switch to other screens, and even launch mobile apps via verbal instructions. But take note though, the feature is still in beta.
The Voice Access feature is as simple as it gets. Mobile users can bark specific instructions like “Go home” or “Open Chrome.” Voice Access even displays numbers next to icons and other elements on the smartphone’s screen, allowing users to utter the number associated with an item in order to access it.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), AT&T has joined forces with New York University’s Ability Lab to challenge developers of mobile apps to use their skills and resources in building mobile solutions for people with disabilities.
The two have teamed up in order to launch the Connect Ability Challenge, a contest designed to encourage innovation for people with physical, social, emotional, and cognitive disabilities. The contest draw a total of 63 submissions, with the winners announced this Monday.
