I have tried the star 4x solution and it did nothing.  I also went to my tv settings and audio is turned off.  Please help with this issue.

I believe that it is for those who may be legally blind or have some other sight disability. Being legally blind does not necessarily mean that they can not see, but only that they have great difficulty in seeing. Giving them a way to hear what is being changed means that they have better control over the remote that they may be using and the Americans With Disabilities Act probably mandates this requirement. Similarly Closed Captioning helps those with a hearing disability or who are just learning English.

I personally don't think that either are stupid requirements as they help those who are disabled with a minimum of problems for the rest of us.

God Bless you sir. My dog stepped on the remote and i could NOT figure it out. Was only on for about a half hour but that was enough. * (X4) was a quick, easy fix. If only every problem was so easily solved.

Yeah, why would we want to give those darn blind people some sort of head start in life, anyway?
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

It drove me crazy too. It's a different path on my Roku stick: Settings > Accessibility > Audio Guide


I registered on this forum just to thank you... It was making me nuts!! I have a couple Roku devices but the one I was using is a premiere- your path was the correct one
