Summaries

Short summary

Most non-visual and navigation tests not supported with Talkback, better to use the Read Aloud feature.

Long summary

The Voice Dream is not usable for reading book content with Talkback. Users will have to depend upon the in-built TTS feature to have the text read aloud with limited navigation features.
With Talkback most tests are not supported. These include identifying hierarchy in TOC, navigation to a section from TOC, print page navigation, text search, going to next or previous chapter without using TOC, continue reading/start/stop with talkback, image alt text reading, table reading and using internal hyperlinks
