    Whilst trying to set up a cheapo smart watch, I occidentally turned on Talk Back.
    What a pig this turned out to be to actually turn it off. I ended up actually managing to disable the app, But it has still left a pic of a hand right at top of screen, and a notification that it is turned on(not).
    How do I get rid of hand and notification please ??

    Hi Gregg,

    Did you disable TalkBack by going into settings->Accessability->Vision->TalkBack and then turning it off, or did you disable the service via the application manager? If you used the latter approach (and it sounds like you did) then I would recommend reverting your change and then turn it off in the settings. Disabling services can have some ugly consequences.

    Yes, I did turn it off in settings. It would not let me turn it off any other way. Every button, on /off switch would not do anything else apart from hearing an annoying voice repeating everything I touched. I got rid of the HAND at top of screen by turning on Palm Swipe to do a screenshot, which disabled hand as well as Talkback.

    Phone seems to be working ok at the mo. I have Google+, Talk back and S voice disabled-- don't use them.
