The idea of having the Samsung Galaxy S9 talking back to you was probably cool, at first. Only at first because you’re now obviously looking for a way to deactivate the controversial Talkback on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, aren’t you?
Truth to be told, Talkback was designed for those with impaired vision. Chances are you don’t have a reduced visual ability, but you tried it anyway and activated it from its dedicated Android menu. To disable it, and make the device silent again, returning to the default menu configuration, you must follow a series of simple steps.
Assuming you’re more than familiarized with the standard commands of the Galaxy S9 – how to open folders or apps, how to scroll through menus, how to browse through options and how to turn On/Off specific features, here’s the path that needs to be followed for disabling talkback on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus:
- Begin at the main panel of the Home Screen, where you have the Apps menu;
- Select it and, from there, head to the general section with Settings;
- Within the Settings window, open the Accessibility tab;
- Scroll down to the bottom of the display, with only two fingers on the display;
- Once you located the Talkback function, you have to tap on it;
- The slider next to it can be finally switched from On to Off.
After that, the function has been officially disabled. The Android menu will reshape, the Talkback function will be reduced to silence, and the Samsung Galaxy S9 will be ready to use without any other annoying factors. It goes without saying, you will be able to reactivate the Talkback after a while. Whether you want to enable or to disable Talkback on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, the option is in the same place within the Samsung Galaxy S9 menus! And you’re one slider away from making it happen.
