Well I claim to be pretty good with phones and its not often i`m stumped on stuff like this.
I really need help though? My Nexus keeps talking to me!!
Its only on the web and some other web based apps like youtube. It will read out the letters as i`m typing into Google. It will read whole web pages to me too.
I have gone through the settings many times over. Def checked that Talkback was off. I have no idea whats making it do it.
My last Nexus did it too so I know its not a faulty handet.
Maybe an app I installed or a setting I just dont know about?

Anyone know what it is???

I have posted this on the XDA site too.

Ok here is a video of it in the eBay app and on the net.
See what you think??

Really you had the same problem. Cool i`m glad i`m not the only one. I thought i was going mad or my phone was possessed!!
This is my second Nexus i have had and they both have done it.
At this rate i am going to have to ring Samsung to see if they can shed some light on it..

Have you got Vlingo installed? I know that's caused this issue with other handsets.

Try flashing a new ROM, might just be a bug with the Talkback feature.

I`m starting to think it has something to do with Lightflow. I am still in the stages of testing. We will see!!

Spotted this on another forum ....

Settings, accessibility and then change web scripts to don't allow.
