The talkback feature of a Samsung Galaxy S8 is funny only until your smartphone starts making unsolicited talks. After all, remember that this function was intended as a navigation support for the users with impaired vision, so there is a big chance not to need it in the first place. Curiosity never hurts though and I bet that you know that controlling your Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone is performed through the currently active talkback function, while scrolling through the menus, requires the typical scrolling movement with the two fingers on the display or opening an app or accessing a menu entry, you must double tap a button, very fast.
However, the truth is that it talks a lot whenever you’re trying to navigate through the menus and the menu itself has changed and it might be too much for many of you.
If you discover that there is no way to properly navigate on your phone’s Android menu because of these talks, deactivating the feature is incredibly simple.
How to Disable Talkback on Galaxy S8:
- First of all, you must tap the home button to bring yourself back to the home screen;
- Alternatively, swipe two fingers to the left to bring your Galaxy S8 to the home screen;
- Next, tap the app menu button, then tap settings;
- Within the settings menu, tap Accessibility;
- Scroll down to the bottom of accessibility with two fingers;
- When you get to the bottom, you’ll find the Talkback feature. This is the point when you tap to move the Talkback slider to the OFF position.
With these simple steps, the Talkback feature of your Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone has been finally deactivated. Remember that the very same menu will help you turn it back on in the future, if you will ever decide that you want to do so.
