    As we probably know, the TalkBack feature allows us to press down on the screen and the HTC One M8 will tell us what the option is.
    It would read the text to us and we can change to the volume that we desire because we might want to have our ringtone or alarm louder. If someone is speaking to us, we may not need the TalkBack to be as loud as the media volume.
