If you are using the BlackBerry Screen Reader, you can add privacy and conserve battery life using Dark Screen mode. This mode turns the screen display backlighting down to 10% brightness.
You may want to increase the speed of the BlackBerry Screen Reader when you're surfing the Internet, or slow it down when you're getting instructions. You might want to increase the volume when you're outside, or decrease it when you're at home or in a quieter space. You might also want to adjust the pitch to make the reader easier to understand. The BlackBerry Screen Reader lets you adjust the volume, speed, and pitch of the reader to provide a personalized experience for any situation.
There are times when you need all the information you can get. In those instances, set the verbosity of BlackBerry Screen Reader to high. Once you get more familiar with the device, you can change the verbosity to low to include less information.
No one wants to be interrupted when on a phone call. The Silent on Calls setting prevents the BlackBerry Screen Reader from reading back information while you're on a call.
Make sure you're saying what you think you are saying. The Keyboard Echo feature reads information back to you when you're typing in a text field.
