    Hey guys,

    Most of us might never get stuck on screen reader, but if you happen to here's how to get out.
    All you have to do is hit the volume up and start button (Windows logo).
    A second way is just to call up Cortana and ask her to navigate you to the settings page :P

    Hope this helps someone

    Another thing... Lets say you reboot your phone after turning the screen reader on and that you have both your SIM Pin and Lockscreen pins on.. Then at the time you are entering the SIM Pin, the operator select notification will come up.. Tap YES so that once you enter you SIM pin, the phone asks you to enter the Lockscreen code.. If you Tap NO then you will again be stuck at the lockscreen because you won't be able to slide up the Lockscreen.. So be carefull... This a very serious BUG in windows phone 8.1.. Hope microsoft solves this..

    Did you try the volume up + start button trick??? You could also just call up Cortana so she can pull up settings for you

    Just tell her "Open ease of access settings"
