However, some less-accustomed users have had a hard time with their personal computers. Namely, they had a trouble with the computer saying everything they do, and for a newbie, this can be a hurdle.

That’s why we prepared this article to help you out and show you how to disable this feature. If you’re not sure what it is or why it does what it does, check the explanation below.

How to disable Windows Narrator

Windows Ease of Access offers various features which tremendously improves the usage for the impaired users.

For example, sight-impaired users can improve the usage with the Windows Narrator which, by using the text-to-speech feature, reads everything you do. Including whatever you type or click.
