    Disable ChromeVox

    Does anyone know how to disable ChromeVox? I accidentally turned it on via some key combo when cleaning my keyboard and now I can't figure out how to turn it off. I've looked through all the key shortcuts with ctrl-alt-/ but can't find anything there or in the settings anywhere.

    If you figure it out please let me know what the keyboard shortcut is.

    ChromeVox is the default screenreader for Chrome.

    Will that read the contents of the screen for you, or is a screenreader something else?

    Yes it will read anything on the screen to you... which is extremely annoying when it's not desired.

    I'm glad Google implemented this. Making an undocumented shortcut key... not so much.

    Maybe if you uncheck "enable accessibility features" in the settings, it will turn off.

    Should see or suggest to be able to toggle it with the Find key.

    Accessibility features are off... I tried turning them on then off again but they seem to have no effect on ChromeVox.

    Anyone happen to figure this out? Mine is still stuck on so I pretty much have to keep volume muted.
