Android Settings for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired
The settings that Android offers for people with hearing impairment are grouped into four subgroups:
- Audio balance
- Mono audio
- Deactivate all sounds
- Flash notification
You can find these settings in:
Settings/My Device/Accessibility/Audio settings
Audio balance is just left/right balance of the audio device. It allows you to personalize the balance for better listening comfort.
Mono audio merges the stereo sound channels into a single mono channel.
Deactivating all sounds makes your smartphone mute. You will not hear anything, not even the voice of callers.
Flash notification is a feature that blinks the flash of the camera to indicate that you have received a notification. To stop the blinking, you just turn the device over.
