Can't get my tv to stop talking commands & its driving me crazy

Somehow my tv is speaking outloud everything it is doing, I can't stop it.

If it is going to newsmax it tells you that, every single step it makes it tells you. I don't know how it got there or what happened, but its gotta stop!!!

Re: Can't get my tv to stop talking commands & its driving me crazy

Hello @Boggs

I hope you're doing well.

It looks like the screen reader was accidentally turned on on your Roku device. To turn it off, press the Star button on the Roku remote four times quickly. The Star button is located below and to the right of the directional pad on the Roku remote. The same steps will also turn on the screen reader.

To learn more about it, you can refer to this Support link: How to enable the text-to-speech screen reader on your Roku® streaming device

I hope this helps!


All the best,
Kariza

Thanks, for the Input!  Worked like a charm! [personal information removed] You just made life so much simpler, for a 92 year old, non- Techy.
