Hi all, i've heard that talkback on android takes up a lot of battery. is there a possible way for me to make it eat less battery? I don't want to reelly use voice asistant, as it does not have the braille keyboard functionality...

best regards

Talkback does *not* take lots of battery. The most I've seen it use over 24 hours is 5 percent. If your battery is draining try turning down screen brightness

If this post was helpful, amusing or what have you, why not thumb it up?

You could still use something like SBK (Soft Braille Keyboard) for Braille imput if you did switch to another screen reader.

do they? I don't think so, I've been using talkback ever and my battery drained so fast, now that I'm using voice assistant it doesn't anymore.
Also, my phone gets super slow with talkback, I think it's the accustom factor.

Take care.

At 7 isn't voice assistant a modified version of TalkBack?

It is, but it consumes much less battery and feels much, much faster, at least in the latest versions it is much better than the latest tb versions.
Csr is the fastest though, it can have abit of a battery drain some times, but that can be fixed with the power saver built into the screen reader.

I won't buy that commentary thing ever, I'm still searching for that spanish article but meh.
Also, I think I'd pass apple as well. They are disguising their phones to look great but most of the times those are the standard phones. I would only get an IPhone just for their siri voices haha.
Yeah, I also feel that voice assistant feels much faster than the newer versions of talkback.

Take care.
