Text to talk icon


I have an icon that works for text to talk and I think I got it downloading an app for virus protection. I have ads popping in on everything. This whole thing started because my phone got so slow and still is. I deleted all the ■■■■ I downloaded and can’t get rid of this text to talk operation. It says that I can’t eliminate it but I can stop it. I spent five hours yesterday trying to fix my phone. I’m ready to throw it away and get a new one.


What phone do you have, and if you long press the ‘icon’ what options does it have?

  • Is it still there, when you boot up in Safe Mode? If so it is native and you may be able to disable it in liew of removing


moto G3 Safe mode???


It doesn’t do any thig wit a long press


Honest I don’t talk like I type!!! LOL It doesn’t do a thing with a long press


It looks like the refererence provided needs a correction (I will submit a request)
To enable Safe Mode, follow the directions below:

  1. Press and hold the Power button.
  2. Press and hold Power off tab/popup
  3. Tap OK when the Reboot to safe mode pop-up appears.


it is booting up in safe mode . Thank you




One can understand the frustration … what’s the answer to the question above ?


@opirono Sorry you’re having so much trouble with your phone.

Are you referring to TalkBack?


Can you post a screen shot of the icon?

With a little patience we can figure this out and turn it off.
