Reading text on smartphones can be problematic for those with visual problems. Due to this, electronic devices like smartphones, laptops, and tablets have accessibility features to help visually impaired users comfortably use them.
Reading mode :
Reading mode works best when you’re viewing webpages with text on them, rather than, say, games or photos. A new overlay will pop up on your display, and at the top you’ll see an estimate of how long the current article is going to take you to finish—just start scrolling down to read it.
If the text and colors aren’t to your liking, you can change them. Tap the text button (two Ts) in the lower-right corner, and you’re able to quickly increase or decrease the size of the text onscreen. Tap the cog button in the lower-left corner to get at many more options, covering text size, style, alignment, and color.
Furthermore, Reading Mode also has the ability to read text out loud. This makes the tool especially useful for people who are blind or have impaired vision, as well as folks who wish to multitask.
How to Use Reading Mode :
Reading Mode is available as an app on the Google Play Store that you can download for free. The only requirement is your device must be running at least Android 9. So, check your Android version first if you don’t know it already.
