Stop Fire TV From Talking

Amazon Fire TV users may find that their device has started talking to them, speaking out all of the text on the screen. How did this happen and how do you stop the Fire TV from talking? We’ll show you with this guide.

What most likely happened was the ⮌ and ≡ buttons on the remote were pressed simultaneously for about 4 seconds. This enables the VoiceView feature. It is intended to be used by the vision impaired.

To turn off the voice, simply press and hold the ⮌ and ≡ buttons again for about 4 seconds until you hear the voice say “VoiceView exiting”.

You can also disable the talking with these steps:

  1. From the Home screen, go to “Settings” ⚙.
  2. Select “Accessibility“.
  3. Select “VoiceView“.
  4. Switch the setting to “Off“.
