Voice Guide is an excellent feature on Samsung TV designed for people with sight issues. That’s basically the Voice Assistant that reads everything on the screen. While this feature comes in handy, you may find it unnecessary if you do not have any sight issues. In this case, it’s a good idea to turn it off.
The steps to disable Voice Guide on Samsung TV may be the same on recent TV models. If you have an older Samsung TV model, you should get a similar Audio Description feature. To turn it off, simply head to Menu > Sound Mode > OK > Broadcast > Audio Language. From here, switch it from English AD to English. If you want to turn it back on, repeat the process and switch to English AD.
