Default Please help.... S3 saying everything I do... aaarrgghh

Hey Guys,

Really hoping someone can help me here.

For some reason my Galaxy S3 has started saying everything that I'm doing on the phone.
Every website I visit an orange boarder surrounds a portion of text and the phone will read it out.
Any text on any page gets read out and it's really bloody annoying!
I have talkback turned off but it makes no difference.

Please help....

Graham.

Look at Settings / Accessibility / TalkBack and make sure it's unchecked.
Whoops miss the last of your post. What browser are you using?

Also have you tried a reboot after setting Talkback? I have a Samsung BluRay player that ALWAYS turns on a boot up sound after an upgrade. I have to cycle the setting on, reboot, cycle the setting off, reboot to turn it off. Very frustrating. Yes I know a BluRay and Cell phone are different. I'm just saying a reboot after setting Talkback may help.

I don't suppose you've got driving mode switched on in your status bar.
