Why is My Roku Narrating Movies while the Screen Reader is Turned Off
The Roku Narrator is a feature that reads aloud the menus and text on the screen, allowing people with vision impairments to use the Roku device. It can be turned on or off in the Accessibility settings.
If you have the Roku Narrator turned off and it is still narrating movies and shows, the most likely explanation is that the audio of the movie or show contains a descriptive audio track that is designed for people with vision impairments.
This descriptive audio track will still be played even when the Roku Narrator is turned off. If you want to stop the audio from being narrated, you can mute the descriptive audio track in the Accessibility settings.
