Hi
As the subject says, I would appreciate it if anyone knows how to make talkback use the main media volume of my phone rather than this annoying separate accessibility volume
I've had to revert back to using talkback because Csr doesn't support tuch typing on my samsung keyboard cover
Thanks in advance

I wish that was a thing, but sadly it is not. I switched to commentary for that thing alone

“Uh oh. You’re stranded. Let’s see if the cube will try to help you escape. Actually, so that we’re not here all day, I’ll just cut to the chase: It won’t. Any feelings you think it has for you are simply byproducts of your sad, empty life.”

I, as well, switched to Commentary for that reason.

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

I prefer separate accessibility volume. Makes it far easier to have some music playing at low volume in background and use talkback at normal volume. I know that CSR also has a way to use separate volume than media volume.

YEah, I don't know why you'd want that. Having separate media volume makes it so you can play your media at whatever volume you'd like without having to worry about audioducking. Would be a step backward to remove it in my opinion.

Yeah. i love the fact that we can have accessibility volume sepperated from media volume. but to get to the point, no. sadly i don't know of a way to achieve this. maby if you get an older version of talkback somewhere?

best regards
never give up on what ever you are doing.

The reason is that it's annoying and awkward to go change 2 separate volumes if you want them level
For example I was using audex the other day and I couldn't get comfortable because either the speech was to loud or the sounds because they use different volumes
In my opinion having one media volume for your (media) sounds logical rather than have 2 or more volumes just for the sake of separating accessibility

I do like having to volumes when it comes to the media and accessibility volume and everytime I tried commentary it does not work like how I expect the thing to work and I also don't trust Chinese software much and who knows what data is being sent to a Chinese server.

That's not a talkback problem, that's an android problem. You should know the volume situation isn't all that great to begin with. The exact same issue when dealing with ringer and media volume before accessibility volume was introduced. TAke it up with the google disability support team so they can possibly inform the Android developers. If they don't know, then it's never gonna get fixed.

To address some thoughts. CSR indeed has a function to use the accessibility volume separately, which I have switched to.
Yeah, I don't even use Audex anymore. It's unsupported and CSR has built-in equivalents anyway.
Well, it's either use CSR, with the potential of unknown data locations but a far more pleasant experience, or use TalkBack wich you may feel safer at the expense of a far less desirable experience.

@10, but TalkBack has been improving a lot recently

@rwbeardjr, I never said it hasn't. CSR is improving even more rapid, and is constantly ahead of TB in terms of functionality, innovation for mobile screen readers, ETC. It's on the cutting edge, and the best Android users get if privacy isn't a concern enough to try it out.
