Try Tripple Tapping the home button first. Then try to do it.

Thumbs up

Thank you guys after 1 1/2 hours I finally came to this forum and found how to remove the annoying talking feature on my iphone. I really thought I had to get a new one because the touch screen was disable with this talking feature. It was not until I read here that three fingers will move the screen that I was able to go to "accessiblity" and turn off the feature. Thank you guys!

Miriam
