Samsung Galaxy S3: Disable S Voice

You can disable the S Voice feature on your Samsung Galaxy S3 if you don’t really care for the feature. Many users accidentally activate it by double-tapping the Home key and would like to prevent it from launching. You can turn it off with these steps.

1. In the application list, tap the S Voice icon or double-tap the Home button.

2. Tap the Menu button located in the lower-left area of the phone, below the screen. A Settings option should appear. Select it.

3. Uncheck the Launch S-Voice option.

The S Voice feature is now disabled and will no longer launch when you double-tap the Home button.

    My s3 won’t give me the option to stop s-voice it just asks me if I want to auto fill a browser what should I do?

    “Don Emerson” way is great. Because even if you “kill” S Voice feom applocation manager since is on driving mode it still will give you or “speak up”

    So turn off Driving Mode will do. And if accidentally pressed S Voice, go to application manager and force it to stop.

    Hope it works.

    Language and Input
    Text-to-speech output
    turn OFF Driving Mode

    Hope this helps! – Don
