Hi, Samsung recently sent my phone a firmware update to Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 . After this update, whenever i swipe across my phone's screen a synthesised voice says "screen one of four" then "screen two of four" and so on. The only way to stop this is to switch off the Pebble service under Accessibility. Any ideas?Thanks.
No it does not. I want to use TTS; but not with the talkback function (e.g. with my car profile).The "Talkback" service is already disabled. And disabling the Pebble service is not an option; but however it makes the voice disappear. That is why we would need the fix in the Pebble app itself.The Pebble service does trigger TTS unnecessarily at the moment.
The fix I posted should be implementable by Pebble (as a workaround). Samsung fixes are to be expected quite sluggishly IMO.
As far as I understood, the fix will disable TTS completely.
Well yea, that's disappointing. Let's see how fast Samsung can provide a fix. I assume that somebody on XDA Developers might be able to do something.
I had that happen to me, nothing to do with Pebble. Pull the battery, you should be good to go.
Its definitely a Pebble app problem. I removed the battery, also did a complete factory reset, tried without the app installed, no problem, but as soon as I installed the app it starts again, but if I switch off the Accessibility option the problem disappears.
It's definetly a Samsung issue. Same Problem when activating NoLED accessibility
I've had the same problem, I disabled Google and Android TTS and installed SVOX Classic TTS from Google Play (also have to install a separate voice file). Seems to have cured the problem. I can now use my Google Maps Navigation App and not have the screen swipe problem.
I'm having the same issue. I have removed the pebble apps. I don't know what TTS is and all, I just simply want to know if Pebble is working with Samsung on a fix for my S3. I can't have it loudly reading all my text back so what i the latest info on a fix please.
**** The Subject should have been "Audible notification on my android phone when opening/closing any folder post enabling Pebble Notification*****This happened ever since I enabled Pebble notification. I noticed that this has nothing to do with opening/closing the pebble app but instead, a result of enabling Pebble notification. I see that right above the Pebble option in the Accessibility menu, is the TalkBack feature. Although I have TalkBack turned off, opening/closing any folder on my phone seems to result in the above said audible notification.
I have this problem too after an update on my Galaxy S2 today. So now I can't use my pebble - is this right? Are there jelly bean users who don't have this problem, or have managed to conquer it somehow?
Thank you so much whacko. I had fiddled continuously with the settings, but it hadn't occurred to me to disable the services themselves. All is well again (until I restart the phone, I presume). Good work
I am experiencing the same problem on my Samsung Note 2.
It's a Samsung bug we're hoping to resolve.
Just curious if there's been any updates on this. My Note 2 is also doing the same thing..
This is happening on my Note 2 also. I had Light Flow but uninstalled when I read others complaining about the voice yet it is still happening. When I disable Pebble in the Accessibility settings, the voices stop and I am able to sleep at night without hearing "HOME SCREEN EDIT PAGE OPEN" in my dreams. Obviously turning Pebble off is not a quality solution as you just end up with the craziest looking digital watch ever made.
the only thing ive found that helps is if you turn the sound on media off and keep all other on. you no longer hear the voice
