Gotta wait till I get off work to try now
Talkback screen reader is not included by default due to lack of storage space. You can install it from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.marvin.talkback
See two posts above how to get TalkBack running.I'm totally blind, so this will be a bit difficult to get someone to help me. Does this come with Google TTS? My thought for now was to flash the rom, and then get someone with vision to help me go through the setup process, enable USB debugging, do an adb install of TalkBack 9, and then enable it. Is there no way to include the screen reader in the zip file? Could you make another zip to flash that contains TalkBack? Ideally, I'd like to do this process independently and have speech at the setup screen.
