Want to try an exercise in annoyance – try turning off Talkback on Android

So somehow Talkback got turned on on my Android phone. Touching anything started the phone reading the description of what I’d touched to me. Really annoying. I suppose it’s for the visually impaired but then a touch screen phone is sort of a lost thing on the visually impaired in the first place although at this point in time I doubt you can get a phone that isn’t touch screen these days.

But it wouldn’t let me swipe across screens – then I googled – you have to use TWO fingers to swype.

I disabled the talkback app anyhow. It’s stupid. Bad on you Google for including that in Android. You should have thought that through.
