I did, turn on and off dolby atmos, adjust it's fungtion watnot, but still, now I am kind of scared it's the problem from the phone itself. I just got this from my birthday a few weeks ago

so... tried to life chat with the active operator, they don't have solution for this, or the guy/gal behind the computer doesn't even understand what is voice assistant/screen reader lol my country really out of date about that stuff.
but yeah, he/she tells me to do a setting reset, which I would like to do rightaway if I meet with a sighted person to help turn on the voice assistant.

Wish I had a magicall answer for this. I have a galaxy s10+, no popping issues, but I really wish the volume buttons would jut be a goddamn global volume adjustment like the iphones are.

Hi.


I'm not sure if this willl help but I think you can press and hold the volume up/down keys for a couple of seconds to turn on voice assistant, but I'm not sure if that feature hasto be enabled first.


I had a samsung but couldn't get the hang of it.


If you can, i'd recommend changing phones but i understand that might not be possible.


It sounds to be like something might be wrong with the speaker, does it happen with all the speech engines you try?

speaker is ok, just headset , the left one, to be exact, and it happends to all diffrent headset I have.
yes this happends with all tts engine, and all screen reader, from voice assistant, talkback, and csr.
so far I do think this is the dolby atmos issue, what will happend if I uninstall it?

Hi.


I hope someone else can help you, I don't have android anymore so can't help much more than my last post.


I think there's an android email list called Eyes free, there's one more but I can't remember it.

@7, i'd just like to set it once and then just have the buttons work normally. Lots of times I have my phone in my pocket and listen to videos as I walk around and need to suddenly turn it down and sometimes it gives me trouble

I had the same issue, and managed to solve it after a year of searching. This might not be easy to do though.
this happens because your phone has an audio modification library by default (dolby atmos), and that library isn't optimized to accept both accessibility and media volume at the same time.
the only solution that I know is to root your phone, and install an audio modification library patch. If you use magisk, there are a few libraries that disable that part of the library, so all sounds go through without a problem. Unfortunately, I don't know any other way that doesn't involve rooting.
keep in mind that even if you turn dolby atmos off, this is still gonna happen, and you need to fix that library for it to stop.
as a final word, my phone model wasn't similar to yours, therefore it might not work for you as expected, so do it at your own risk

@14 wow, I am happy to hear there is at least a way to fix this issue, may I ask for the guide?
by the way does rooting considers as an illegal?
and what's with this crackling happening when the wifi is on?

I don't have a complete guide unfortunately. However,  you can find more about rooting your phone with a simple google search, and Magisk is very popular. You'll be needing audio modification library module after installing magisk.

alright, thanks, I will bring the phone to the nearby samsung serfice first, see if they can do something about the dolby atmos or the popping. if not then, I'll root.
there is a way to just uninstall the dolby atmos without rooting though, what happened if I do that?.
