What is The Android Ally?

The Android Ally is a desktop software companion to enable testers and developers faster access to Android device accessibility features. The core goal is to simplify and encourage Android Accessibility testing. It also works on emulators, which have been problematic because of the nature of the gestures that TalkBack uses.

The way that the software operates is by reading and writing values to the device settings through the Android Debug Bridge (ADB). On some devices, this may result in some unexpected behavior.

Use at your own risk. Please read more about these commands from within the help menu. The Android Ally also has an optional Android accessibility service called TalkBack for Developers.
