A lot of phones will have this feature which can be turned off/on in the settings.

Which phone are you using ?

Some apps that use the accessibility services can also inadvertently turn on talk back service in some samsung devices.

Have you recently installed such an app? If you want to continue using it you'll need to disable the Google text to speech engine by navigation to

Settings...apps...running...

And Tap disable on the Google tts engine.

On your phone hit settings

First try going to accessibility and look to see if talk back is enabled

If it isn't.

You'll need to goto settings, apps,

Swipe on the screen to running applications

Disable the Google text to speech engine.

Even though talk back says it's off, there is a bug in some samsung phones that makes app's trigger talking.

Did you try the app I linked to above?
