I had a search query on August 25 that read:
my iphone 4 is talking “slide or double tap”
I’m thinking someone might have accidentally turned on Voiceover for the iPhone. If anyone else has that problem and stumbles upon this post, just do a three finger double tap to make the voice stop talking.
A friend of mine had this happen with his iMac. He was messing around with keys and it started talking. That might be rather frightening if you don’t know that all Apple products come with a screen reader for the blind haha!
If your iMac starts talking, just press command + F5. If it happens on a Macbook, press command + function + F5.
Hope this helps future searchers. 🙂
*Looks like I was a bit mistaken. Please check out the comment from Amanda for more. I guess you don’t turn the screen reader off and on so easily, so maybe this query had nothing to do with what I thought it did.
