    Whenever my brother pinches the screen to edit the homescreens on his s3, it says "homescreen edit mode", and then when you choose a homescreen depending on which one it'll say "homescreen 4 of 7". How do turn it off? I've gone through all the menus to turn it off, but can't find it!

    Its either driving mode (status bar) or settings-accessibility-talk back

    Can also be caused by apps that use the accessibility features due to a bug in TalkBack, such as Tasker and Light Flow.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Unfortunately, nothing's worked. TalkBack's off, so is driving mode. And he has neither Tasker, or Light Flow.

    lol it's bugging me more than him. :mad: Only happens when you pinch the homescreen to edit your screens.

    I know this is an old thread, but it may help other people with this problem....
    I have had the EXACT same issue, I just now figured out what my problem was. I had installed "Smart Launcher" a couple of days ago, if you want Smart Launcher to show notification numbers of your text messages/voice mail, etc, the program prompts you to install an add on and activate it. When I turned off this add on notification, my talking phone finally stopped! I hope this helps others with the same problem!:rolleyes:
