TalkBack mode is a special feature in smartphones that is oriented to help people with low vision or the blind. This is because such people can’t see what is happening on their smartphone’s screen. If you have a device that is running Android 4.0 or later, your smartphone has the TalkBack feature.It is quite easy to enable this feature but rather hard to disable it.

But, it is stressful and time consuming to spend most of your precious time when disabling it.
