Roku Ultra - Turn Off Voice - Where Do You Install MicroSD

Jump to solution

I have purchased a Roku Ultra.  How do I turn off the voice while setting it up?  I went into the Audio and set everything to off but it will not stop talking to me.

Where do you install the MicroSD card?  It may have something to do with the purple tabs but I am unwilling to pull on them until I have some verification.

It amazes me that there is no pdf file covering the basic operations of the unit.  Searching through these online messages and answers is worthless to me.

To turn off the audio guide just press the option * key four times. If you don't want it come on again settings> accessibility> scroll down to Shortcut> disable

 

Just under the hdmi input.

MicroSD slot was hard for me to see but I finally noticed it under the HDMI connection.  The cable was already installed so it was hiding under the connector.

I will try again on the audio.  I thought I had hit everything.  Thanks for your help.

Pressing the * four times worked.

Going through the menu (Settings - Accessibility - Shortcut - Disable), however, did not.  Glad the four * worked.

@lkae30 

Thanks for the note.

What you're most likely experiencing is the Roku audio guide. Audio Guide can be turned on or off by pressing the star button * on the Roku remote four times quickly.

For more information regarding the audio guide, visit our Support page here: How do I enable text-to-speech using Audio Guide?

We have tried to turn voice over off in every way enumerated on Roku website, via settings and the remote. Says it's disabled but is not. Any suggestions?

Press the option key four times.

 

WHO THE **bleep** DESIGNED THAT?? The **bleep** thing comes on at the drop of a hat. Mine is constantly coming on. You breath the wrong way when picking up the remote and the voice comes on and won't shut the **bleep** up. Who the **bleep** was the genius who decided hey let's fix this so that it doesn't go off unless you press the button four times.
