Moto X and Moto G accessibility options

We continue our look at accessibility options on today's latest phones with the 2014 editions of the Moto X and Moto G. Motorola's phones, as we've been saying for the last year or so, mostly stick with the "stock" builds of Android, only adding some select features here and there. And the Moto X is going to have more of those than the more bare-bones Moto G.

So it's not a huge surprise that we don't see as many accessibility options in the Moto X and Moto G as we do, say, in the LG G3 or Samsung Galaxy S5.

There is, however, a little bit to talk about here.

First things first: The 2014 Moto X and Moto G have identical accessibility features, save for one. They're both built on the same basic Android accessibility features that we've previously profiled. (And that includes Google TalkBack.) The Moto X also has a "Moto Voice" accessibility feature, which is what lets it read back your notifications and incoming calls and the like.

So other than that, there's not a whole lot to write about.

But it is worth another mention that the Moto X and Moto G should be among the first phones updated to Android L later this year. And while it's still in developer preview status, we've already seen two new accessibility features added in L — a color inversion mode, and a color space correction setting with six options for helping those who suffer from color-blindness. You can read more about those new options here.

We'll revisit the accessibility options in the Moto X and Moto G once they're updated to Android L.
