Get rid of X overlay in YouTube Videos


So recently I noticed that a transparent or white X would appear at the bottom right of my YouTube videos.

Also it would simply obstruct videos and be generally annoying as it was always in the way.

If you simply closed it by pressing the X it would reappear the next time you Play a YouTube Video.

What is this X?

This X is a overlay and is simply a accessibility feature that not playing well with YouTube. Did you install Google Accessibility suite lately to be able to access the text to speech feature?

So if you did the cool ability to have your phone read to you has a bug that causes the weird X on YouTube.

4.Finally find : select to speak and turn the feature off.

That’s it the X is now gone and all you have to do now is only enable the Text to speech feature when its needed. I hope a update soon will fix this bug.
