    This is the option that we want to focus on in this video tutorial, "Speak when screen is off".
    The TalkBack function allows the HTC One M8 to talk directly to us. It will tell us what the keys, buttons, and options are. It will also read the text to us. It is very good for people with limited sight or blind people. This TalkBack function can also allow the HTC One M8 to speak to us, even when the screen is off. It says, "Notifications are spoken when the screen is off." For anything we've set up to receive notifications, this TalkBack function will be able to speak to us. Currently, it's turned on. There is a green box with a white check in it. That means that this function is activated.

    However, if we do not want the notifications to be spoken to us when the screen is turned off, then press down on the box.
    The check will disappear. We can see the option has changed, here. It now says, "No speech occurs when the screen is off." This is the current option selected.

    If we do want to receive speech when notifications arrive and the screen is turned off, then press down on the box.
    Now, we will be spoken to when we receive notifications when the screen is turned off.
