How to Fix My Kindle is Talking to Me Problem

kindleI love my Amazon Kindle device due to my love of reading and I am one of the most satisfied users who are using Amazon Kindle for years. My love of reading started few years back when I used to read paperback books but it was not possible for me to carry all of my books wherever I go. Thus I decided to purchase Kindle Fire so that I can purchase books in electronic format and I can carry them with me all across the world. It gave me liberty to read my books in electronic format whenever I want and no one can stop me. My experience with Kindle was so good that I never need to call Kindle Support for any kindle of help.

Few days back, all of the sudden my Kindle started talking to me and trust me it was so annoying that I didn’t touch my kindle for few days. I did everything that I could to shut it up but all in vain, I couldn’t stop it. It was telling me each and everything that it could weather it was starting or my reading percentage. I was feeling like I am a blind person and it was guiding me to operate my Kindle. I was about to call support but then I realized that this is actually a great feature made available by Amazon to people with visual problems so that they can use the device with voice command but still it was a big problem for me and I wanted to turn it off anyhow.

I spend few hours on search engines to find out how can I turn it off. My kindle is talking to me and I was not able to stop it even if I strongly wanted to do so.
