I can't get into my Motorola G Stylus 5G.

I was trying an app out, and it has locked me out of the phone. I'm on my old phone now.

Short summary:

  1. On your locked Motorola G Stylus 5G, locate the Moto Actions notifications on the screen.
  2. Tap the arrow near the Moto Actions notifications. It may require two taps to access the settings.
  3. By accessing the Moto Actions settings, you will be able to modify or disable the function that reads out your actions on the screen.
  4. Look for an option related to screen reader, voice guidance, or touch feedback.
  5. Disable or adjust the settings accordingly to prevent the voice from narrating your actions on the screen.
  6. Once you've made the necessary changes, try using your phone's touchscreen again.

Do you mean that your Motorola G Stylus 5G is locked?

Yes. It will not allow me to get on it at all.

Can you please specify what you see on your Motorola G Stylus 5G screen or can you please provide me with a picture of it?

It just shows my screen saver. Every time I touch the screen there's a voice telling me what I am touching, and it will not let me into the phone.

Can you please click two times on the arrow near the Moto Actions notifications?
Most likely, you accidentally turned on the function so that your phone sounds all your actions on the screen.
