How to Disable Talk Back Mode on Android Devices
You may find the names of options may be slightly different from manufacturer to manufacturer. But the core process remains the same.
Are you ready to find out how you can disable talk back mode on Android? Here you go.
Step #1. I assume that your phone is locked. If you have regular swipe to unlock option enabled, you will find it difficult to unlock your phone as always. It is because the talk back option makes things tricky.
When you try to unlock your phone by swiping a finger, it will not unlock. And, you must know that the very same process should be done with two of your fingers. Also, the fingers must stay far apart. Or else, the device will assume that you are using only one finger.
So just use two fingers with a little space between them to do the unlock action.
Step #2. Hurray! You have overcome the first chaos haunted you. It’s time to disable talk back. First you have to open Accessibility settings. Unfortunately, it is easier said than done as your phone has an extra option turned on that makes the scene hard.
As a first step to disabling talk back, open the notification panel. You need to swipe the fingers from top to bottom to get the same. As I said earlier, you need to use two of your fingers with a little space between them here.
Step #3. You can see Settings icon there. Don’t hesitate to open it because settings panel is the gateway to accessibility. Once you open Settings, use two fingers to scroll down to accessibility.
Here comes the tricky part. You can’t open it with a single tap. Instead, you have to touch it once and tap twice after that.
Step #4. Now you have accessibility tab opened. Do the same to talk back as you have just opened accessibility
Step #5. You will get an on/off switch here. Just double tap on Off to disable talk back. And, do the same to Ok button as well.
That’s all. I hope you now know how to disable talk back on Android.
