Good Good screen reader. The only thing I can think of to criticize is, the web views do not work as smoothly as they should in some apps. Not sure if it it depends on the developer or not, but I hope that talkback will have better support for these controls in the near future. Also, I would like to see a separate volume for speech, completely independent of the device's media/music volume.
