Accessibility trick

I'm amazed that people find this useful. All of it is redundant with easier ways to access. Different strokes for different folks -- it is what I love about Android though, multiple ways to accomplish tasks.

Yes, of course I had to try it. And then I changed it back. It's quite obviously made for people with some kinds of disabilities.

Has it been determined if the accessibility trick increases battery usage?

I turned it on for a while and decided to turn it off. Some of the shortcuts are useful like sound and screenshot. For sound, I have the Google Fibric case on so pressing the volume buttons requires a very firm press. It is easier to press the little guy and then volume. For screenshot, the same thing. But I came from a Samsung where the back button is where the little guy is. I am still getting used to hitting the back button on the left side so I still often will try to press the right side. If nothing happen, I will go to the left side, but it is annoying that that the menu came up.
