TalkBack provides spoken feedback to help you navigate your device, describing what you touch and activate. Note: Sighted assistance is needed for users with no vision to enable TalkBack if it wasn't turned on during the initial setup.
To turn TalkBack off or on:
- From a Home or All Apps screen, touch the Settings icon.
- Go to Accessibility > TalkBack.
- Slide the TalkBack switch to the On or Off position.
- Touch OK.
When you turn on Talkback, spoken feedback starts immediately. As you navigate your phone, TalkBack describes your actions and alerts you of events, such as notifications and incoming calls.
