I am not seeing any notifications on my lockscreen: Ensure that you have enabled the app using the wallpaper or widget options, activated the Accessibility Service, and have received a new notification while your phone was locked.
SMS and calls work, but Facebook/WhatsApp/Other content notifications don’t work: Ensure you selected the appropriate content sources in the settings. Ensure the accessibility service is turned on. Try re-starting the accessibility service by turning it off and on.
Contact’s photo is not showing: If your contact photos are coming from facebook syncing, 3rd party apps cannot access them. Use an app like SyncMyPix, Friend Sync, or Facebook Contact Sync to download accessible copies of contact photos.
My phone started speaking actions aloud, like “folder open” or “page 3”: This is a bug with Samsung Phones, not my app. To fix it go into Settings -> Apps -> Find Samsung TTS -> Disable it.
This app is in ongoing development. It is built and supported by one independent developer (who has a day-job). Please be patient and email bugs, feature requests, or constructive comments to the developer.
