Please press and hold both the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons on your Samsung phone for three (3) seconds. That should turn off the Voice Assistance option. If that does not work, please try the followings:

You can go to Settings > Accessibility > Screen reader or Vision option, then turn off the Voice Assistant option there. Notes:

  • To scroll, you need to use two fingers to swipe / scroll the screen.
  • To select an option, you need to tap once on that option, then double-tap on that option.

- Here are the full steps for how to turn off Voice Assistant:

  1. Make sure you are at the home / main screen on your phone.
  2. Use two fingers to swipe the screen from bottom to top.
  3. Tap once on the Settings app icon (the gear / wheel icon), then double-tap on Settings.
  4. Scroll down using two fingers until you see the Accessibility option.
  5. Tap once on the Accessibility option, then double-tap on Accessibility.
  6. Tap once on the option Screen reader or Vision, then double-tap on Screen reader or Vision.
  7. Tap once on the Voice Assistant option, then double-tap on Voice Assistant.
  8. Tap once on the OK option, then double-tap on OK.
    - That should disable the Voice Assistant.
