How to access accessibility shortcuts in Android Jelly Bean

This page explains how to setup a shortcut to the accessibility options on your Android mobile or tablet.

  • To activate the Accessibility features on your android device select ‘Settings’ under 'System' and then select ‘Accessibility’
  • The accessibility features can quickly be enabled with this option selected.
  • Press and hold the power button until you hear a sound or feel a vibration.
  • Tap and hold two fingers until an audio confirmation is sounded.

NOTE: These instructions apply to the standard version of Android as found in the Google Nexus range.  They also apply to other devices (as long as they are using the same operating system) but please be aware that there may be minor differences.  This is due to the custom ‘skins’ some companies apply to their mobile devices instead of the stock Android theme.
