Voice Feedback is designed for people who have trouble seeing. It alerts you to incoming calls, and it helps you use and configure phone features. A voice reads out incoming Caller IDs, displayed screens and settings, and button functions.
When on a call, only you hear Voice Feedback so your contacts will not know it is used.
This accessibility feature makes softkeys easy to identify, and to use. Push a softkey once, and Voice Feedback reads out the feature associated with the key. Push the softkey twice, and the feature is executed.
Hardkeys such as the Contacts, Applications, and Messages buttons are treated differently. Push a hardkey once, and a voice reads out the screen name followed by the application or setting highlighted on the screen.
By default, Voice Feedback uses your speakerphone to alert you. But if you lift the handset from the cradle, then Voice Feedback is heard through it instead. If you are using a headset, then this feature uses your headset speakers.
Volume is adjusted using the Volume button and either your handset, or the speakerphone, or headset buttons. For example, customize Call Alert by selecting the speakerphone, and adjusting your volume up or down. For your handset, lift the receiver from the cradle, and adjust the volume. For your headset, select the Headset button, and adjust the volume.
Adjust the volume for handset, headset, and speakerphone separately, and when you first enable Voice Feedback.
You may not hear Voice Feedback if you have selected the Headset button, but don't have a headset connected to your phone. If you cannot hear Voice Feedback, select the speakerphone button and you will hear Voice Feedback again.
Voice Feedback is only available for English language users. If this feature is not available to you, then it is grayed out on your phone.
