    Hello. Welcome to Android Central.

    Do you have Settings - Accessibility - Talkback on your device?

    Yes. I was describing the path from opening Settings to the get to Accessibility etc. Text to Speech is in Accessibility also.

    I understood it was speaking every function or message to you, is that correct, or is it waiting for you to answer?

    Hello. Sorry for not getting back sooner, it's 2pm in London now.

    I would ask if you could post a screenshot of the Accessibility screen, when I find a guide to do that I will post it here. Do you have any phone store near you that would I'm sure be happy to help. That would be very annoying I know.


    I can check the manual for the majesty also, but I currently have an intermittent signal.

    Do you know what Android version you are on, in About Device, probably 4.1 or 4.4.

    This is my Accessibility screen on my Motorola on Android 5.1( Lollipop).

    The ZTE Majesty manual lists a Talkback setting in Accessibility. You may have a different version. That's what you want to turn off.
    Or contact a Straight Talk store if it's theirs.
