Can someone help? I've tried all kinds of screen locks apps that will disable my touchscreen while using the audio option on Play Books (on my Galaxy Phone, Note 4 I think lol) Anyway, audio playback turns the page as it "reads" the book to you, so as soon as it turns the page, the audio stops. Apps are locking the screen, just won't allow the device to keep reading. In fact, only time it works is when, by some glitch, the page freezes but it continues to read. I listen to books all the time & am getting frustrated!

I've read thru the above instructions and tried several times to turn off the voice guide feature on my son's Kindle with no luck. I can get the voice guide button to switch to the off position, but as soon as we open a new window or let the screen turn off & back on, VG has somehow turned itself back on. Any & all advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Erin & Stelios

I found the Voice View option under accessibilty in my (Adult) profile. I made sure it was turned off but it is still on when I switch to my child's profile. How do I turn it off!?!?!?!?

this was SO helpful! thank you!! to take a step further, we did not have the "more" option on my son's profile, so had to go into settings, then had to use 2 fingers to scroll down to reach "accessibility" menu and turn off. took me awhile to figure out 2 finger scroll, since that is not the case for the rest of the tablet, only when in this mode. not product very user friendly. wow!! thanks again!!

On my Kindle, we also had to use 2 fingers to get it to select anything for some reason. Thanks for your tip!

That's the ticket....
What I want to know is how in the wide wide world of electronic devices can crap like this turn on so easily and yet be so difficult to turn off?

This happened to one of my children's profiles in FreeTime. In order to change the setting, I had to enter the pin for my profile. Guess what? Voice Guide read my pin aloud as I typed it! Horrible, terrible design failure. Almost unforgivable, Amazon. Get your act together.

My kindle keyboard was driving me mad. It slipped in my grip and I somehow activated speech for my main menu. I was looking at experimental speech not in the settings at voice guide... Didn't know I had that option! ;D
This helped immensely! :D
