    That is this option here, "Use pitch changes, Don't change voice pitch when speaking." This function allows the voice to change the pitch in its voice while talking to us
    .
    If there is grammar or punctuation, it will allow the voice to change its pitch. This could make it sound more human, especially while reading long paragraphs. We can turn this option on or off.

  11. 11
    Pressing down on the box will put a check in it
    .
    We can now see that the option below it has changed. It says, "Speak keyboard feedback in a lower-pitched voice".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    If we press down on the box again, the check will disappear, and it will switch back to, "Don't change the voice pitch when speaking"
    .
    As we can see, if there is no check, then it won't change the voice pitch.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    If we press down on the box, and the check is there, then it means that the feedback will be in a lower pitched voice
    .
    This is the way to change the pitch changes of the TalkBack function. Make the choice that is right for us.
