How to switch into Blind Mode

Q: How do I find the switch to turn on Blind Mode?

Blind Mode is normally enabled during the initial guided setup, if you say that you are blind. You can check it under preferences > misc. To set this up via voice commands, say these commands, making sure to pause and wait for next prompts between each:

Speaking Email will then tell you whether blind mode is on or off and ask if you would like to change it. 

What is Speaking Email?

An app for iPhone and Android that reads your email out loud to you. It intelligently extracts content from emails (minus the signatures, disclaimers and threads). And it lets you action your email - archive, mark-as-read, trash, flag, reply, or forward. It can be completely by voice command, or use the large on-screen buttons or full screen touch gestures.

Who is it for?

People with blindness or visual impairment. People who are busy and run out of time to get through their inbox. People who want to make productive use of time when driving between appointments.
