How to Turn Off Talkback on Android Phone

Android phones come with a variety of accessibility features to cater to different users’ needs. One such feature is Talkback, which provides audible feedback for visually impaired individuals.

While Talkback can be incredibly helpful, it may not be suitable for everyone or in certain situations. If you find yourself needing to turn off Talkback on your Android phone, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Access Accessibility Settings

To begin, open the Settings app on your Android phone. You can usually find this app in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Navigate to Accessibility

In the Settings menu, scroll down and look for the Accessibility option. Tap on it to access the accessibility settings.

Step 3: Locate Talkback

In the Accessibility settings menu, you will find various accessibility features available on your phone. Look for Talkback, which is usually listed under the Vision or Hearing section.

Step 4: Disable Talkback

  • To disable Talkback, tap on its name in the accessibility settings menu.

  • You will be taken to the Talkback settings page. Look for a toggle switch labeled “Enable Talkback”.

  • To turn off Talkback, simply tap on the toggle switch once. It should change from “On” to “Off”.

Step 5: Confirm Disablement

Once you have disabled Talkback, a confirmation dialog box may appear asking if you want to turn it off. Simply tap on the “OK” or “Disable” button to confirm your selection.


If you have accidentally turned on Talkback and are having trouble navigating through the settings menu, you can use two fingers to swipe up or down to scroll, and double-tap anywhere on the screen to select an option.

Congratulations! You have successfully turned off Talkback on your Android phone. Remember that you can always re-enable Talkback by following the same steps and toggling the switch back to “On”.

By understanding how to navigate through the settings menu and access the accessibility features, you can easily customize your Android phone according to your preferences and needs.
