Ibrahim,

Eloquence has been discontinued by CodeFactory, and is no longer on the Play Store.

This is because the code is so old, that they are not going to convert it to a 64-bit app.

ESpeak is the next best one for low-resourced speech.

All the best

Steve

Hi
A Nokia 2.2 is one of the lowest Specht android phones they do. Maybe consider the Nokia 6.2 or 7.2 or better get a Nokia 8.1. Yes your pay a bit more for these phones but you will get a much better performance and testing experience. Also, I would never recommend anyone needing voice-over to touch one of the lower range of devices purely because talkback is quite a resource intensive task running in the background when its constant reliance on the Google text to speech engine. If you’re going to continue to use this phone, download eloquence which will be less resource intensive if you don’t already have it and use that as your text to speech engine or E speak which I believe is also available for android although I’m happy to be corrected here. Good luck and have a look on Amazon for the newer Nokia devices, you can purchase them over five monthly instalments in some cases making the more affordable if that is a concern or consideration. Take care.

I realise you don’t want to pay much for a TestFlight device, but as the old saying goes if you pay peanuts you get monkeys right?
