Google has annouced a slew of new features coming to Android this fall, some of which include innovative accessibility features geared towards people with motor impairments as well as those with low vision or blindness.
As part of the update, Android will introduce two new facial gestural controls. 'Camera Switches' will allow users to activate various commands via facial gestures, which can include anything from raising their eyebrows to squinting, to opening their mouths. The second installment is called 'Project Activate,' a separate communication-focused app in which users can make specific facial expressions to trigger actions like texting or playing audio.
In addition, Google has said that a new handwriting recognition tool is on the way. The new tool will be accessible via Documents mode and will be capable of reading Latin-based languages.
