Use Android TalkBack with Lync on your Android mobile device

When Android TalkBack is turned on, you get a spoken description of whatever you touch, select, or activate on your device.

By default, TalkBack is turned off. To turn it on:

  • From the home screen of your mobile device, tap Settings > Accessibility > TalkBack, slide to ON, and tap OK.

Important:  When TalkBack is on, you’ll need to open your voicemail in a separate Lync view in order to play it back. Here’s how to do that:

  1. Tap the Voice mail icon on the top of the screen. This will open a new view in Lync.

  2. Select the message you want to play, then tap the Play icon to listen to the message.

  3. To exit voice mail, press the Back button.
