How to Disable Voice Guide using Voice Commands

Do you have a remote with a microphone button?

Use it to your advantage.

Hold down the mic button and command your TV to “Turn off Voice Guide.”

Release the button and there it is, peace at last.

Why Even Have Voice Instructions?

Now, let’s chat about why this feature exists in the first place.

The Voice Guide is designed for the visually impaired, making TVs more accessible by reading out text and menu options.

It’s a fantastic tool for those who need it, but for the rest of us, it can be a bit much.


The language setting is beneficial, even if you’re not visually impaired, improving navigation, especially from a distance.

Disabling it might be challenging in the settings menu, but our guide with visuals makes it a quick task.

If you prefer a silent TV experience, remember to disable TalkBack, a feature similar to voice, used for various TV functions.

Toggling these features doesn’t require a TV restart and only takes a few seconds, allowing you to do it anytime.
