    The one that loudly proclaims "the folder is open/closed?"

    It's really very annoying and I can't find anything in the "sound" settings to turn it off.

    Is there a way to disable this? :confused:

    Hi
    Have you got talkback ticked in
    Settings-accessability?

    No

    Thanks but no, that's not set to "on."

    Any other ideas of what this could be?

    Are you using the light flow app? I think I read about this being an issue with that app.

    Or any other app that needs to be enabled in accessability. I had that issue with other programs. Not just Light Flow.

    BINGO!!!!!

    You nailed it. That was the problem.

    Do you know of any other app that controls the behavior of the notification LED that I can now use instead of LightFlow?

    Thanks so much. I was going to go to the Verizon store and see if they could have helped me. And I just know they wouldn't have had a clue!

    Don't know of anything else like it. If there is it will probably have the same issues since it also probably needs to use the accessibility settings. I have up on light flow long ago as it was always too flaky.

    i had this same issue and i have lightflow... and yes, it will happen with other apps that use accessibility... how i solved my issue was disable the Media volume, so now i get to keep lightflow and not for the annoying folder open/close voice

    Out of curiosity have any of you tried disabling 'TalkBack' in app management and see if it'll resolve that annoying voice problem?

    I don't use any of the apps mentioned so I wouldn't really know. That's one of the first things I disabled on my Note, Note 2 and Note 10.1. Have no use for it.

    These issues are present when talk back is off.

    I don't know if it has any bearing, but I'm on Verizon.

    No. However, I just created one and open and closed it without this issue occurring. I do also have talkback unticked. Never used it.

    Are we losing anything important by having Lite flow turned off?
    Thanks
