After a joyful first week on my Nexus 7, I decided to try out some of the Accessibility features.
It all sounded so wonderful, but I ended up for eight hours trapped in the "Talkback" feature. It
seemed I was in a "walled garden" or a never ending loop, totally unable to escape back to
the normal screens I wanted to be in.
To be fair there are warnings given that you are completely changing the way you access your
tablet but it is such a radical change. You really should become totally familiar with your new environment and
how to navigate with it before venturing into it. I simply could not get back to settings to turn "Talkback" off. Did
not at the time fully understand the swipes, double presses and gesture driven commands to do what
I needed to do.
Have others had similar problems and hopefully come up with some easier answers, and maybe a failsafe to
get you back to home base as it were?
The only thing I could think of was a "hard reset", that google gave instructions for, involving holding down
on and volume buttons. But however many times I tried this with the Android figure falling on it's side
I could not get it to reboot. Finally got a randomn gesture to reveal the "settings" icon.
So my questions are if people have an easy answer to this feature and is it a problem that my
N7 would not do the hard reset, does that indicate a major problem?
