OxygenOS 13.1 is the latest Android-Based operating system from OnePlus. Designed for simplicity and comfort with intelligent new cross-device connections for easier connection and better interoperability. Plus, OnePlus has integrated several useful elements in OxygenOS 13.1, and one such is the TalkBack Describe Images feature.
Now, the company is planning to launch the stable version of OxygenOS 14, which will definitely improve the financial status of the TalkBack Describe Image feature.
What is the Talkback feature?
The TalkBack feature reads text and describes on-screen content out loud. In other words, it is useful for people in situations where they are uncomfortable looking at the screen. This feature provides verbal feedback, allowing users to operate their devices without looking.
With OxygenOS 13, the OnePlus TalkBack feature helps read a text and narrative on-screen content aloud. This is very useful when you cannot see the phone screen. On the other hand, the feature is convenient for low-vision users and helps to speak aloud when objects are touched, selected, or activated.
