Google's Voice Access app maybe? It's not related to tasker but was made for situations such as this so it might work.
With some help from you for setup you can use this.
I just tested it on Moon+ and was able to scroll via voice just be saying "scroll down".
If they are reading this: Please improve Google Voice Access. I don't have any significant disabilities, but this would be super useful in say states that don't allow touching the phone while driving, for apps that don't have completely functional voice commands. (I mean Waze. It's better in the latest big update, but still really terrible)
What Voice Access really needs is a Grid command, so you could then do Bladerunner style "Tap at 9" "Swipe from 7 to 6", Subgrid in 8", etc. in apps that don't expose the UI elements properly.
It also needs to not listen to sounds coming From the phone. (again, Waze) - Perhaps by training to my voice the same way as Google Assistant if there's no better technical solution.
You can try using Voice Access, you can download that from the Play Store.
They have a tutorial within the app, good luck!
Try this app. Watch the video to understand. Use your Phone without Touching it - https://youtu.be/6bTIjUi2vYU

Or check if your phone has 'flip to answer call' or ' click power button' to recieve call option
You can easily open apps just using the normal Google voice commands, however choosing playlists/songs may be trickier. Usually Google can handle streaming services though for general apps, try using Voice Access. YMMV.
Google's Voice Access app can vocally control any music player. But since it doesn't meet your criteria....
VoiceMusic (no ads) is a very simplistic music player that doesn't even have a file browser for picking and choosing, but it will vocally play any music folder or song as long as you already know its full or partial name. You must wait for its voice prompt to begin speaking.
It's a one-trick pony app with a small list of commands, but works well for what it does. And it doesn't need Internet access.
> Some day in the not-so-distant future, they'll be able to fully use their regular smartphone by voice.
You might be the ignoant one here considering that's something that's possible today: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess
>Voice Access's usefulness to pretty much everyone is so evident, even driving home from I/O, I found myself wishing I had it on my smartphone.
They do realize voice access has been available to the public for at least a few weeks now... Right?
EDIT: Bot got it wrong, I think you have to sign up to be a tester. Yeah, you do. Here's the test sign up & play store links.
I think people should try Voice Access by Google if you haven't already. I hope this will be a help for some disable users.
Edit: some words
You could always just use Voice Access from Google too....works fine on my Oneplus 5t... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess&hl=en_US
You could make a Tasker mini-app that opens the bus app and taps the appropriate route. (that second step may take a tiny bit of trial-and-error testing)
Export the task as a separate app using Tasker App Factory.
Ask Google to open that separate app, which will then open your buss app and route info.
Or you could download Voice Access for Google Assistant and use that to have Google navigate your phone by voice. Or buy a 10-cent stylus and keep it in your coat pocket. That's what I do (but I'm in Texas and it only gets that cold maybe 15 days a year).
apparently voice access in android 11 works offline. it's not as polished or pleasing to the eye as google assistant but can do much more.
I only just came across this when getting annoyed trying to answer my phone via voice in my car - have a look at Google's "Voice Access" app - you can set it up so it only triggers on an incoming call and is off the rest of the time unless manually triggered.
I'm not 100% sure about this but I think you can run Android apps on Chrome OS. If so you could try Voice Access from Google. It's still in beta, has been for years, but it worked well last time I tested it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess
Voice Access again and again ;)@
Some time ago I came across Voice Access, and had some harsh words about being unable to talk to a human at Google. That's water under the bridge now.
My shiny new M31 is where I do my AutoVoice stuff, and I've still got my S7, and to be honest couldn't be bothered keeping them in sync. Then I had an idea: install Voice Access on the S7, and give it a chance to shine without competing for resources with AutoVoice.
I'm embarking on that exercise, this is just a heads up for anyone interested. It remains relevant to Tasker because I fully intend to see what can be done with the two co-operating.
Footnote: Not everyone has English as their first language, and Google apps have been English only, which is annoying for anyone wanting to talk in e.g. German, Portuguese, Hungarian. I suppose this is a start:
You can use Voice Access in English, Spanish, German, Italian, or French.
also, fwiw, i got voice access from google working recently, now that i have play services working.
very nice... being able to do voice to text and use voice to control the UI is nifty.
Now using mouse go and install the app
and allow required permissions. Now you can control your phone through voice after some practice. Connect the USB cable and allow permission through voice.
Now you have otg. You can mirror your screen to pc and use mouse connected to mobile as an input.
If your mobile is Samsung then Samsung flow app lets you control your mobile through pc without need of usb cable.
On Pixel 4a, I'm having the same problem. It seems Google took out the voice part of Google Assistant and put it into another app called Voice Access. You have to get it from the Google Play store, install it, and then you can use voice to interact with Google Assistant again.
It was working perfectly fine before. I don't understand why they did this and then didn't tell anybody they needed to install another app to get it working like it was before.
I was considering Google Nest Mini mostly because maybe it can recognize my voice better, what do you think of it compared to the Dot 3rd gen?
I'm going to buy the plugin too, what are the differences between the two versions?
Yes, voice recognition is kind of hard due to my condition; i have Spinal Muscular Atrophy (Type 2). Alexa doesn't recognise me occasionally, but I also don't have the "Learn My Voice" option (the one at the left of Delete profile - for additional voice training).
Which hotwords do you use? I'm making a list so I can record with Snowboy in a go and I wanted ideas! Have you heard of the Voice Access app? It has many commands but it doesn't recognise me so I was contemplating (and procrastinating aa it's such a long project) about making my own version of it through Tasker; especially the grid selection and using different commands at a grid is very nice (pinch at 5).
You can already download it. It's part of the package and works fine on Android 10.
I'm using it right now with the Pixel 3 XL. The screen aware context is working perfectly.
Google's Voice Access allows one to control any touch-compliant app. You invoke it via "OK Google."
May someone please confirm that the Voice Access app works on top of Google Assistant preferably on the Sena SMH5, SMH10 or S20 models?
By Voice Access I am referring to this app:
Thanks for your reply. So if I understood you correctly you've tried playing music by navigating and using Voice Access ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess )?
item 1 is an app by Google called Voice Access, and it can co-exist with AutoVoice.
Item 2 can be done with AutoInput Gestures to change home page on Nova Launcher, or as I use it, to make Swiftly Switch menus pop out.
EDIT I see u/havaneseballer got there first with Voice Access, can't hurt to get aome consensus so I'll leave this here.
If ut is pdf then Forget tasker for mine idea, look up to google, here is the app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess
It is still in beta but should get the work done, take the tutorial and boooom. It will work with okay google command (and it should do the light work of the assistant too), you can tap any clickable point on screen, swipe up down left right, write something via voice and more commands in app. Check them after tutorial and set some settings in app with ur preference.
For me it works to read pdf just fine. I used adobe to open pdf. Hope it works for u, good luck.
OK great trying it now!
The numbers are from Voice Access app
hi there. I use tasker but maybe this app for your task is better and its from google fir those kind of situations. Give it a try it dies everything on the device just by saying the number it has next to everything check
> I don't like Google or Samsung's apps.
> I don't really have any criteria other than it working without fuss.
I can certainly see how Voice Access isn't suitable for everyone. I'm still waiting for less convoluted or less primitive voice commanded apps for music, videos and file browsing. In any case, I should offer others a brief description of how Voice Access works.
> Voice Access can be launched traditionally or by an "OK Google, open [...]" command, which is how I launch it.
> You open an app within Voice Access with an "open [...]" command.
> The app assigns a number to each and every executable button or widget within an app's interface.
> You "press" a button by saying the number associated with that button.
> The app has its own list of commands including those that control Voice Access itself.
There doesn't appear to be a Scroll forwards/backwards.
Voice Access swipe gestures:
Voice Access has a "Show Numbers" command that will assign a number to all interactive buttons and icons on the interface. If the app has a button to turn a page backwards or forwards, she can say that number to click its button.
I'm not disabled but I use Voice Access in conjunction with "OK Google" to navigate and play videos on my Android TV from my bed 10 feet away.
Indeed my usage is atypical, but I'm an i3 marks evangelist. Losing titlebars is something that appeals to me cosmetically nevertheless. Perhaps just post tmarks in the right hand top corner (or the left for arabic) in a little bubble or box.
This android app has a similar approach: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess&hl=en_GB
Weird, your link doesn't work...
Edit : oh, your link for some reason is
US on Google App version 7.17. It seems it can toggle most every day settings. I've only used it a few times here and there so not sure the extent of what it can really do.
GA itself doesn't have quite the control that bixby does there but I guess that's because google has voice actions like that in a separate accessibility app called Voice Access, which for some reason is still marked as "unreleased". I assume it will be rolled into the google app or android itself at some point but who knows really.
Cool. I'm lucky, nothing breaks except that Tasker restarts for no reason, usually when the phone is idle. I need Tasker to work, I have Parkinson's, so I'm eager to investigate before the brown stuff hits the fan.
I did have breakage with voice input direct into AutoTools dialogs, cured by unticking the voice option.
I'm in the UK and got Assistant by switching to US English, downloading, and switching back to UK/GB English. The interesting difference i that the UK English assistant won't integrate with AutoVoice, but switching to US and it does. Also, Assistant starts up as Google Now occasionally (wtf?) and if I hit the Back button up comes the Assistant.
There are rumours of tighter AutoVoice integratiom with Google, and the mysterious app "Voice Access (Unreleased)" on Play Store.
Voice Access is an accessibility service that helps users who have difficulty manipulating a touch screen (e.g. due to paralysis, tremor *or temporary injury) use their Android devices by voice.
My guess is that we're going through the "minimum casualties" phase of a major API transition and/or server change.
Sorry if this sounds like utter bollocks ... it probably is; but I'm hyped to see the word tremor.
Google really needs to get This working well enough to use for Waze, Maps, etc. while driving. It needs a grid mode or something so you can speak out taps and swipes for apps which are not perfectly Accessible - and that would make using it resemble the 'enhance' scene in Blade Runner more than it already does, which is obviously a must have.
(I know Waze and probably Maps has built in voice commands, but I want something that actually works.)
Cool link, bro.
Try this and lemme know if it's decent enough. I'll think of more solutions.
Google's Voice Access app isn't perfect, but I couldn't use a mobile device without it.
AnkiDroid has Google Voice access support: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess&hl=en (and text-to-speech via <tts: https://docs.ankidroid.org/#_workarounds)
We discussed Google Assistant integration for AnkiDroid a couple months ago, but it didn't provide the functionality that we wanted for natural voice access: https://developers.google.com/assistant/app/reference/built-in-intents/bii-index
Alexa's hosted on AWS, and it costs money per request after a generous free tier. It's possible, but not sustainable without charging money.
I also doubt many people would use it, so didn't feel it was worth the development effort.
I think Google's Voice Access is what you're looking for.
This is the app that was causing your issue
Try Voice Access by Google.
Somewhat via: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.voiceaccess&hl=en
Try this one Google Voice Access
Do you have Google assistant setup.
My other suggestion would be to setup voice access.
For android users who find this thread: Voice Access
This is my unfounded speculation, could this be relevant?
Voice Access might help. It's still in beta though.
For offline use, I've had better success with Voice Accesses.
It does occasionally drain the battery, so it's best with a device that you're going to leave plugged in.
