    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....

    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.

    Do you have the app lightflow installed and activated?

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

    Yep, I would check this a I had to deactivate lightflow myself as it was informing me everytime I opened a folder.

    Same here. Its an ice cream sandwich bug not light flow, so hopefully Google will fix it soon!
