    Hey there, I'm new to this forum. I've had my RAZR HD for a while now and yesterday it updated to Jellybean finally (Rogers customer here). What I noticed however is that when I type anything into google chrome browser, it is dictated to me. Every action I do such as pressing the search button is said out loud. I have no idea how I managed to make this happen but it has become quite annoying. So far all I have done is made sure my volume is at zero. If anyone can help me fix this that would be much appreciated!
    Thanks

    Not exactly sure if this is the problem, but it sounds as if the update inadvertently activated the talkback app under accessibility options, which helps visually impaired people interact with the phone.

    I checked the talkback app earlier this morning to make sure it was off it is. I turned the app on briefly and then shut it off to see if that would fix it. But to no avail

    try disabling Talk Back. Assuming you wouldn't need it.

    Talk back is disabled. Weird.
