No not a problem with disabling, I want to know how to activate my voice talk from any page without opening the top page or the hi Galaxy page?

I can't talk with high Galaxy or okay Google and any other page, how do I do that in only happening in TalkBack Galaxy page. I have tried: I've tried to change it in settings, I tried to download English hi audio female language, I've tried to turn off and on activate talk Text and talk Google with Google and Samsung. I think it was caused by: I think this in the settings I have something not on or off that means to be on or off

Hi Yassora how do I stop my Samsung from telling me page numbers?

It's really annoying.

Every Time I swipe a page it tells me page 1 of 7 or page 2 of 7.

Well, it's not really a question?

My device does not show TalkBack as a service anymore. It is on (and driving me nuts as well), but it's not shown as a service, and as if it was not enough, my phone is also in negative mode and does not show that up anymore either.... I have tried: I've turned the phone on and off several times and tried following the steps, but it's still not showing up. I think it was caused by: Obviously, I turned it on (by accident) but I have no idea why it's not showing up in the settings anymore.
