Press the * button on your remote four times in rapid succession or go into Settings->Accessibility->Audio Guide and disable it.  While you're there, disable the Shortcut.

If someone from Roku (perhaps @RokuDanny-R or another employee) would mark @renojim's answer as the answer, that might help others in the future.

For Roku Ultra (4800R):

Go to Settings > Accessibility > Captions Mode, then drop down to Screen reader and select "Off".

Now go back to Screen reader and drop down to Shortcut and select "Disable".
