Accessibility on Huawei Phones Vs. iOS Devices

Other Apple Chat

Hi all,

As the title of this forum topic implies, i want to ask about the accessibility of phones from the Chinese brand Huawei vs iOS devices. My mom is considering getting me a Huawei phone or an iPhone XR when it comes out, and i would like to know, if anyone has used Huawei devices, how the accessibility is.

I know that all android devices run Talkback, and i have attempted to use it, with close to no success. Also, Huawei is a Chinese brand, so i don’t know how their custom skins or launchers will work with Talkback.

I know the fundamental gestures of Talkback, (swipe left and swipe right and double-tap), so i already know the basics of accessibility on Android.

Any replies would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi Maddy
This forum allow talk only about accessibility in apple devices and just give some limited answer to some others manufactures regarding to accessibility.
someone told already what instruction to do the google group can answer to your concern
in my own opinion I had used Huawei devices and accessibility is okay talkBack works fine the problem with some Chinese manufactures is don't allow the fully personalization
I don't know where you live but if you have access to get a pure android is way better who get some android skin
see you in the google group to answer all your questions.
