Accessibility features on the HTC One M8

3
HTC One M8 accessibilty

Accessibility is one of those areas of the settings menu that most of us gloss over, unless there's some specific setting we need to enable manually for a specific app, usually to allow devices like smartwatches to piggyback on notifications.

But for a good many folks out there, accessibility features allow for smartphones to be used more easily — or at all. Maybe you need bigger text. Or some audible readouts.

We're taking a look at the various built-in accessibility features on some of the most popular phones available. Today, we're looking at the HTC One M8.

Moto X 'Pure Edition' plays fine with T-Mobile and AT&T LTE

Moto X backs

Good news, everyone! If you're looking to go the carrier-free, "Pure Edition" route with your new Moto X, Motorola says it'll work on both T-Mobile and AT&T LTE bands. (Last year's unlocked model was more TMo-friendly.)

The bad news? Motorola's website is still getting hammered.

Commiserate in our Moto X forums if you'd like.

What is Google TalkBack?

Google Talk Back

Google's TalkBack service is a great way for the vision-impaired to use all of Android's features

Most of us take being able to see everything on our high-resolution Androids for granted. We peep at pixels, discuss the merits of display technology to death, and even tend to turn our nose up at devices that don't have the ultra-high-res "true" HD screens some of today's flagships offer. But that's not the case for the large segment of us who have impaired vision.

Folks who have a hard time seeing the overload of information that a modern smartphone has to offer will need some assistance, and Google provides a really comprehensive set of tools in TalkBack. TalkBack is an Accessibility Service that helps vision-impaired users interact with, and enjoy, their devices. It uses spoken word, vibration and other audible feedback to let you know what's on your screen, what you're touching, and what you can do with it.

Eight reasons to buy a Moto X 'Pure Edition'

126
AT&T Moto X bloatware

We're picking on AT&T because that's what we currently have, but the other carriers are just as guilty of bloating up what otherwise is a pretty clean implementation of Android on the new Moto X.

You can pre-order the AT&T Moto X Bloatware Edition now; the Pure Edition goes up at noon EDT.
