I have a sonim XP8 that talks to me when I touch the screen. how do i shut it off?

To disable the talking feature on your Sonim XP8, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the "Settings" menu on your phone.
  2. Look for the "Accessibility" option and tap on it.
  3. Within the accessibility settings, locate the "TalkBack" or "Screen reader" option.
  4. Disable or turn off the TalkBack or Screen reader feature.

Please note that the exact steps may vary slightly depending on the specific version of the Sonim XP8 and the operating system it is running on.


It won’t let me go into anything, talks to me when ever I touch or move it and I can’t go to settings to turn it off. The damn talkback sucks

Hi Bill. I believe what you're experiencing is the Accessibility feature TalkBack.

Go to Settings -> System -> Accessibility -> disable Talkback. Hope that helps.
