The Android operating system has many functions, ordinary users are not even aware of some of them. One of these "chips" mobile OSes is Talkback. It is intended for visually impaired people - when it is turned on, the text on the screen is voiced by a robot. However, some people activate this feature by accident. Then they don’t understand how to disable Talkback. What actions for this need to be done - today's article will tell.
What is it for?
In fact, Talkback is a standalone application, which is part of Android by default. You can activate it on almost any smartphone or tablet. This function is regularly used by people with vision problems . The program voices them all menu items and other interface elements, as a result of which you can use the device without looking at its screen.
Ordinary people, of course, do not need this feature at all. An ordinary user will read all the menu lines or signatures under the icons faster than a robotic voice does. Fortunately, Talkback is disabled by default. But it can be activated accidentally when you get acquainted with the "Settings" section. It can also be turned on if you buy a smartphone by hand - after all, it is possible that its past owner does not see well.
Now many tablets and smartphones have their own proprietary shell. However, in terms of settings, they are all about the same. In this regard, Talkback on Android of any version and with any interface is deactivated the same way, with very few exceptions. To do this, perform the following steps:
Step 1. Go to "Settings".
Step 2. Go to the " Accessibility " subsection.
Step 3. On some shells, then you will need to go to the " Vision " subsection.
Step 4. Go to the Talkback section. On smartphones and tablets Samsung, it can be called Voice Assistant .
Step 5. Deactivate the checkbox next to the function name.
Step 6. Most likely, you will need to confirm your actions. To do this, click on the " Yes " button.
Do not forget that the first click on an element will not mean anything - it will only make the robot voice the corresponding text. Therefore, the clicks must be double - in the manner of double-clicking the left mouse button when managing the Windows operating system.
