If you have the updated software on your Android device then you can follow these steps below in order to reach the accessibility tab:

1. Tap on settings

2. Tap on the tab MY DEVICE

3. From here scroll down in order to reach TalkBack mode

4. Double tap on the on/off switch to cut the feature on/off

Aside from the steps given above to disable TalkBack. There is an alternate way to disable the settings if you really find it inconvenient doing double tap to access the settings menu. The alternate step would result for deletion of data and setting all settings to default settings. The alternate way is to reset the phone back to factory settings. This may sound awkward but it is true as wipe data can restore the settings to factory condition.

Disable S Voice TalkBack from re-enabling on Bluetooth connection?

I have disabled on my AT&T Galaxy S4 repeatedly. But every time I get in car and Bluetooth connects, it re-enables.

S-Voice is connecting to your car for safety to ensure that you are not using your device while driving. If you want to disconnect this altogether then you are going to need to disable the blue tooth from your car to your device.

This is the equivalent of you wanting your device on to receive texts but not calls as this is impossible for they both work hand in hand together.

-Go to settings

-Go to connections

-slide the Bluetooth option from on to off
