How do I make and receive phone calls using TalkBack on an Android device?

You can make and receive calls on your Android device by using TalkBack gestures:

  • To answer an incoming call: Two-finger swipe up
  • To reject a call: Two-finger swipe down
  • To reject a call and send a text: Swipe right and double-tap Reply
  • To hang up a call: Near the bottom of the screen, select End call which can be accessed by using explore by touch.

You can also use the “Power button ends call” feature. When this setting is on, you can press your device's power button to end a call, making it faster and easier to hang up. To do this tap Settings, tap Accessibility and turn the option for “Power button ends call” to On. If your device supports multi-finger gestures, you can also use a two-finger double-tap to answer or hang up a call.

The phone app contains various buttons and tabs which can be accessed by using TalkBack gestures. These include contacts, keypad, recents, voicemail and favourites. Depending on the device you have, these options may be found on different areas of the screen.

When you are in a call, you can access options like keypad, mute/unmute, speaker phone, hold call, add call and end.
