    Does anyone know how to get rid of that annoying voice that announces each operation? The best I can find is to turn the sound off but that defeats the effect of many of the device functions and apps.

    What voice are you talking about? I have had 5 different tablets, none of them have any "voice" prompts.

    On my new 10.1 Galaxy tablet, if I turn the sound completely on so that the various applications that make sound can be heard properly, there is a computerized voice that makes a statement every time I press a new application.

    I have a galaxy 10.1, no voice. Checked with a friend, also no voice. Where did you get it?

    Try Settings->Sound, and uncheck the boxes under feedback.

    Sorry for the delay in responding. Unchecking the boxes under feedback seems to have taken care of my problem. Thanks for the help.

    Dued...Lighting up!... Usually on occasion I enjoy a good joke or two...As for Information I tend to give good tech advice on this and many other forums I am involved with. As for your post everyone seemed confused due to the fact that Tablets nor Computers normally come with pre-installed sound files schemes...
    Sorry if the intended hummor offended you.

    Not a problem, but humor in forums is normally reserved for those with whom you have dealt with in the past or someone you already know. Since I don't know you, how was I to know that your post was intended as humorous? I wasn't offended, I was looking for an answer to my problem and your comment surprised me. I'll watch for that in the future.

    Well, my problem is back. Here is what I'm getting and I find it hard to believe that my Galaxy 10.1 is the only one in existence that does this.

    When pressing any application image on the screen I get a computerized voice that tells me what I have just touched. For example, when I touch home it says -"Click Home". when I touch settings it tells me - "Click Settings". Since I already know what I have just pressed, I really don't need to be told what I just did.

    I don't know about that, but I do know that I looked for something to TURN on voice and there is nothing on my tab. Did you by chance add a screen reader or accessibility app to your tablet?

    Nope, it's just like it came - out of the box. It was set up in the store by Best Buy people.

    By the way, I've been reading about something new that is supposed to enhance the device, called TouchWiz. do you know anything about that?

    Regarding the TouchWiz thing, it's in the update. I'm probably the only one who doesn't know this but in case someone else wants to get up to date here's how.

    Go to Settings, About Tablet, Software Update, and follow the instructions. Takes about a half hour all told. Looks like a good update.

    Why would that be? I had no trouble downloading and installing the update. Is my unit somehow different than those of most users?
