What is talkback on Android?

It is an accessibility feature developed by Google for Android devices. It is designed to assist individuals with visual impairments or blindness in navigating and using their smartphones or tablets. it provides spoken feedback and audible cues to help users interact with their devices effectively.

When it is enabled, the device will read aloud the text on the screen, including notifications, menus, buttons, and other elements. It also provides spoken feedback for gestures and actions performed on the touchscreen. For example, when a user swipes their finger across the screen, Talkback will announce the item that is currently selected or focused.

It offers various customization options to cater to individual needs and preferences. Users can adjust speech rate, volume, and pitch to make it more comfortable to listen to. They can also choose different navigation modes, such as linear or explore by touch, depending on their preferred method of interaction.

In addition to spoken feedback, it supports other accessibility features like Braille displays and gestures for navigation. It helps users locate and interact with buttons, links, and other interactive elements on websites and apps.

First, how is the Talkback activated automatically? Or why was talkback enabled on your phone even though you did not do so?

There are two possibilities for this

  2. is when the phone is exposed to liquids, especially in the area of the keys, which causes involuntary contact for a sufficient period.
