Enable screen readers (Android and iOS)

Starting with version 21.6.0 of the VidyoConnect for mobile app, users with visual impairment can now use the built-in screen readers of their mobile devices to navigate their Vidyo calls. Screen readers allow a visually impaired user to read the text on their device with a speech synthesizer that reads out the text on display.  When a user presses and focuses on a button or icon, the screen reader will announce what that button or icon is used for. Also, when a user uses gestures such as swiping left or right and causes a change on the screen, the screen reader will announce the change that occurs. These screen readers can be used to navigate the VidyoConnect menus, dropdown menus, toolbars, meeting controls, etc. 

Screen readers must be enabled on the Settings menu of your mobile device (not the VidyoConnect for mobile app Settings).
