Android 13 Beta supports braille displays

Tech Giant, Google officially announces in its official blog post that its next upcoming mobile operating system Android 13 beta will bring native support for braille displays through the Talkback screen reader.

"Available in our next Android 13 Beta in a few weeks, we are beginning to build out-of-the-box support for braille displays in Talkback, our screen reader within Android." - Google

Further, Google added that;

A refreshable braille display is an electro-mechanical device that creates braille patterns by raising rounded pins through holes on a flat surface. Braille-literate computer users use the braille display to touch-read braille dots representing text. With the display, you can also type out braille. These devices help people with deafblindness access mobile phones and people with blindness use their phones silently. Previously, people connected their Android devices to braille displays using the BrailleBack app, which required a separate download from the Play Store or used a virtual keyboard within Talkback instead of a physical device.

According to Google, there are no additional downloads necessary to use most braille displays. People can use braille displays to access many of the same features available with Talkback. For instance, you can use display buttons to navigate your screen and then do activities like compose an email, make a phone call, send a text message or read a book.

There are also new shortcuts that make it easier to use braille displays with Talkback. Now there are shortcuts for navigating so it’s easier to scroll and move to the next character, word, or line. There are also shortcuts for settings and for editing, like jumping to the end of documents or selecting, copying, and pasting.
