On the latest one UI system, talkback doesn’t read anything on screen if app is recording audio via
AudioRecord. Is this a bug or an over-designed feature?
- enable talkback
- start recording via AudioRecord in app (looks like talkback won’t be affected if your app is using other native recorder)
- talkback doesn’t read anything on screen. But if you re-enabled talkback, it starts working again…
Our app has a voice assistant that supports keyword spotting (voice activation like “ok google”/“hey siri”) which requires recording audio all the time when app is in the foreground. This talkback bug is blocking user from hearing talkback.
