    hi I'm new to oneplus iv been with apple most the time , I'm dyslexic and often had to use my phone to highlight words and the phone spoke the word . could you tell me is this possible with the oneplus 5t . also just an idea I had years ago ,a lot of dyslexic people have to use coloured paper that helps them to see the letters better . is there away you could be the first to have changing screen colours instead of just black and white maybe green , yellow blue ect

    Hello there!

    for your convenience, could you do the following steps -

    - go-to settings
    - about phone
    - scroll down till you find "build number" and tap on it more than 5 times.
    - now go back to settings, you'll find developer options menu.
    - tap it and scroll down till you find this simulate color space option, just toggle it to your preference and see if that helps.

    and about the phone talking out the things you touch like menu options etc. under settings -> advanced -> accessibility

    select talk back and turn it on. now your phone will talk/let you know what you are pointing at.

    let us know how it goes! :)

    thanks Iv tried them both out . the colour change doesn't help me and I'm not sure it would help others but I can't speak for them really but to me it only changes the colour on the screen it doesn't help with reading of words . the talk text is what I need just a shame that there is a speech bubble on the screen at all times . it would be better if you could just select the word then where is comes up with copy, cut and paste have speak . instead of this speech bubble in the way and you having to move it around the screen. very helpful for now tho and I will be using it . thank you for your help

    no problem

    also, can you try color inversion from the same acessibility menu?

    also, are you sure you chose the right option? select to speak will give you a chat head, which means you need to tap it before selection. but talk back doesn't. it reads wherever you tap, without any chat bubble.

    haha!

    please don't fret! ^^'

    it's simple. just follow this guide..

    Drag one finger. Explore your screen and hear audible feedback for what is being touched.

    Double-tap anywhere on the screen. Opens or activates the item that you last touched.

    Swipe up or down using two fingers. Scroll within lists.

    Swipe left or right using two fingers. Change pages and screens.

    Swipe right (or down) using one finger. Move to the next item.

    Swipe left (or up) using one finger. Move to the previous item.

    Swipe down then up using a single motion. Transition to the next reading level when reading blocks of text, then swipe right to read forward or left to go back.

    Swipe up then down using a single motion. Transition to the previous reading level when reading blocks of text, then swipe right to read forward or left to go back.

    Swipe right then left using a single motion. Move to the next page.

    Swipe left then right using a single motion. Move to the previous page.

    While you’re exploring with one finger, you can use another finger to double-tap to open an app, widget, and so on.

    haha! suite yourself! ;)

    but that's how talk back works in all Android phones. chat bubble is new though. they're both convenient if you adjust/get used to them :)
