Oh wow! Let's make sure we find this culprit then BigBadBill1961. Try going to Settings>Language & Input>turn off Voice cmd for apps and then select Text-to-speech Output and make sure Driving Mode is set to off.

Thank you

Which phone do you have? Knowing exactly which model with help narrow down the model specific instructions.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Hi BigBadBill1961,

Oh my! We want you to live, so let's get this fixed. Go to Apps ➔ Settings ➔ Accessibility and uncheck TalkBack. Keep me posted.

Thanks,

It seems I can no longer reply to the thread. Anyway, the TalkBack function is already off.

Sometimes on my dumb flip phone, (inadvertently) pressing the external speaker button while the phone is closed -- and all other buttons locked -- sometimes toggles driver mode.

I replied to the email notification and that posted. Just like I’m doing now.
