Method 3: Use the Home Button and Volume Buttons

This method involves using a combination of the home button and volume buttons to disable TalkBack on your device. This method has also been known to work for most devices.

Note:

If you are having difficulty disabling TalkBack using any of the above methods, you can try restarting your device.
