Roku TV Text to Speech Punctuation Settings

Hi there. Is there a way to change the Roku TV’s Text to Speech Settings in a way that changes the verbalization of the punctuation. For example, the voice says “asterisks, slash” etc., so is there a way to turn it off so it will not speak the punctuation, but read things all the way through? Thank you!

Re: Roku TV Text to Speech Punctuation Settings

Hi @AwesomeMan47

Welcome to the Roku Community!

To change the Text to Speech (TTS) settings on your Roku TV, you can follow these steps:

  • Turn on your Roku TV and navigate to the home screen by pressing the Home button on your remote.
  • Select the Settings option from the menu and then scroll down to Accessibility.
    In the Accessibility menu, select Audio Guide and then select the Text-to-Speech option.
  • Here you can turn on or off the Text-to-Speech feature and adjust the speech rate, volume, and voice type.
  • You can also select the "Customize voice settings" option to choose from different voice options and adjust the speech clarity and emphasis.
  • Once you have made your desired changes, you can exit the menu and the settings will be saved.

We hope it helps!

Warm regards,
