    For certain events, such as opening up an internet page, my Nexus likes to talk back to me. This occurs even if I put the phone on silent mode. For example, when I go to facebook on the browser, my Nexus will say "facebook". This is extremely annoying.

    I've looked all through the phone settings, nothing seems to work. Any thoughts on how to disable this?

    If your nexus talks back to you i would either slap it or call an exorcist.....

    I've tried that. It says that it is off, yet it is still doing it.

    Ok I managed to fix it. Even though TalkBack was "off", it was still doing it. So I went into settings under "TalkBack", and unclicked everything. Seemed to do the trick!

    I don't believe light flow has anything to do with it.
    There is a web scripts option under accessibility, that makes the browser talk.

    I don't see this option on my browser. I'm using ics browser plus. I even turned on the debug settings. It seems any app which has an accessability service causes this bug. I've also experienced it with Llama

    Edit: nevermind, found it in phone settings. I was looking in browser settings.

    Just installed ICS on my Nexus S and got this issue. Disabling web scripts finally worked for me, thank you.
    What else are we disabling by doing this, I wonder?

    I don't think anyone knows. No one can deal with the talking long enough to figure it out.

    My RAZR M starting doing this too.. after reading this thread and how someone mentioned lightflow, it clicked that this did in fact start happening to me after installing light flow. I uninstalled lightflow, chrome stopped talking to me. Yay.

    Actually Light Flow does have something to do with it. There are several apps that when installed on certain Samsung phones cause the Talkback feature to activate. The problem, however, isn't with the apps, but with the way Samsung did something and haven't bothered fixing. If you go to the Light Flow page in the Play Store (excellent app by the way), they have a link to the issue in the "what's new" or "app description" section. They also tell you how to fix the problem so you can keep using the app.

    Help!
    I enabled accessibility on my samsung galaxy 3 and now I'm locked out! It won't accept my password. Before it went into lock mode, I tried to turn accessibility off by pushing the icon for "settings" but the phone would not respond. In fact it did not respond when I touched any of the icons. What now?

    Single click followed by double clicking for all pages: Menu > settings > accessibility > talkback> disable...

    If your phone does not show settings on pressing menu button, then follow these instructions... hope it will do..
    Home page > open browser > open google play store > search talkback > it will show talkback as installed, tap on uninstall > follow the instructions > it will do..

    Hope This will work... Thanks.

    I went to Settings and activated Talk Back. I realized how annoying it is. So I went back to Settings but I couldn't find Accessibility. It was NOT listed. The last item in Settings is Battery. I tried to scroll down but it won't let me. I turned off the Power to reset it but it didn't work. Then I restarted and that too didn't work. I took off the batter and put it back on and again it didn't work. There was not Accessibility in Settings. I can't even swipe onto the next page when I'm in Apps. Grrrr! Can anyone help me turn this freakin thing off? Thank you.
