Tizen provides the following accessibility features:
Visually-impaired users can interact with a Tizen device through intuitive touch screen gestures. The screen reader reacts to the gestures by examining the elements of the graphical user interface, reading aloud, and highlighting the currently focused content of the screen.
The user can configure system-wide font size settings, such as enlarge the fonts to suit visually-impaired users’ needs.
You can enable 1 or more accessibility features at the same time to better suit the device to your needs and preferences. Some features (such as the screen reader) require the use of a small set of specific gestures to operate them, while others (such as changing font size) only need to be enabled in the device settings.
To enable the screen reader:
Install and launch the UI Components application.
UI Components is a mobile native sample application included in Tizen Studio. You can install it through Tizen Studio.
Select Accessibility > Screen Reader.
Enable the Screen Reader (TTS) setting.
