Roku is a hardware digital media player and it’s among the most popular in the world. As it features regular updates – it’s a good solution for everyday use, and it features a lot of things that are designed to make the using process better. However, sometimes such features may become annoying – one of them is Roku audio guide. If you’re getting triggered by your Roku talking to you – don’t worry, there’s a simple solution.

Of course, the audio guide is an extremely useful solution for some people that need audio assistance, but if you don’t need it – you can turn it off, so Roku won’t talk to you anymore.

How to turn off voice on Roku using the remote

The first way is the simplest one, but you need to use the Roku remote. Just press an asterisk button four times in a row and the audio guide would be disabled.

The second way is also simple, so you can use it in case the way with pressing asterisk doesn’t work. Here’s what you should do:

  • Press the Home button on Roku remote
  • Select Settings on the sidebar
  • Go to Accessibility
  • Choose Audio Guide
  • Turn it to Off

After you did this, the audio guide (sometimes called Text-to-Speech) would be turned off.
