Roku audio playing every time I switch streaming

Two days ago my Roku device started giving a (terrible) audio description every time I selected a streaming station.  I select Netflix and it starts talking (in a very bad computer voice) describing EVERYTHING that is on the page for Netflix and as I move through the different tabs in Netflix.  It does this every time I move through the Roku for every single step I take.  It just started 2 days ago.  I have had Roku for a year and a half and this has never happened before. It's extremely irritating.  I want to turn it off.

That's the Screen Reader.  Press * on your remote four times.  Disable it permanently in Accessibility settings.
