If you use TalkBack on your computer, but would rather not have your computer speak text, you can disable text to speech on TalkBack using a keyboard shortcut. Likewise, you can disable text to speech on Google’s speech-to-text service by disabling TalkBack from the settings menu. Alternatively, you can disable text-to-speech on Discord by disabling the text-to-speech feature in the chat application.
Disable TalkBack to disable text-to-speech
If you’re on an Android device, you can disable TalkBack with the volume keys. Or, you can use the Google Assistant or the Accessibility settings. These procedures will vary depending on the TalkBack app and Android version. If your device doesn’t have these options, you can enable an accessibility shortcut.
You can also disable text-to-speech by turning off talkback. This feature can be found in most Android phones. However, it is often hard to disable. Disabling the feature will prevent your device from reading any words that you select. Using one touch to command text to speech will no longer work.
After enabling TalkBack, you can also access the global context menu, which gives you access to settings and options for the text-to-speech feature. The menu offers options for reading from top to bottom, repeating the last utterance, spelling out the text, and more. The menu also contains a link that allows you to customize TalkBack settings.
To turn off TalkBack on Android, you must go to the Settings menu. From there, you can choose a specific element and click the next or previous button. Alternatively, you can double-tap anywhere on the screen. In addition, you can also tap on an element and enable text-to-speech functionality by sliding your finger over it.
Disable Google Speech-to-Text
If you want to disable Google Speech-to-Text features on your smartphone, you can do this easily. Go to the Settings app of your smartphone. Click on the Speech Services by Google option. You’ll find the settings in the menu bar. Scroll down and select Auto-update languages at any time.
After you enable Google Speech-to-Text, you can select the languages you want it to read. This feature is available on many Android devices. In the Google Play Store, you’ll find many other applications that use it. For example, Talkback applications use it. In addition, you can also use Google Translate and other accessibility-based apps that use speech to text.
To disable Google Speech-to-Text, you should go to your Android device’s settings. To do this, select the Voice & Text option, and then tap the toggle switch next to “Voice Messages.” Disabling Google Speech-to-Text can be done in a few ways. You can also use an alternative service, like VoiceType, which uses your voice to read your text.
Alternatively, you can disable Google Speech-to-Text on your Windows 11 Home PC by disabling the “Speech Services by Google” app. This will prevent the application from using vendor-specific voices and settings.
Disable Discord’s text-to-speech feature
If you’ve been annoyed by the voice-over notifications that come with Discord, you can easily disable it. You can find this option under the “Notifications” menu in the app settings. Simply select “Never” and the Text-To-Speech feature will be disabled.
This feature isn’t available on the mobile app, but it’s available for all other channels. To enable the feature, simply enter the /tts command when in chat. If you have it enabled, you’ll receive notifications for all channels, but only when you’re on a particular channel. You can also disable this feature at any time.
To disable the Discord text-to-speech feature for everyone, you can modify your text permissions. You’ll find this option under “Roles.” Make sure you’re in the “@everyone” role and go to “Text Permissions.” Then, scroll down to “Send TTS Messages” and look for the slider.
You can also enable and disable the Text-to-Speech feature in Discord‘s settings. It’s easy to turn this feature on and off, but some people find it difficult to disable. If you’re among those struggling with this problem, you can disable Discord’s Text-To-Speech feature in the desktop version.
Discord’s text-to-speak (TTS) feature can make it difficult to hear some messages. You can disable it by following a few simple steps. First, you can disable the feature by setting it to “never” or “for all channels”. Then, you can test the Discord TTS functionality. Once you have done this, you can enable the feature and see if it helps.
