How to Take Off Narrator on Disney Plus

The Disney Plus streaming service came online in 2019. With this you can watch many movies and shows in the Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, or Marvel collections. Further, for vision impaired and blind users, many of these shows have a narrator track. In that track, an announcer tells you what’s going on on the screen as the video plays.  You can hear this narration by turning it on in the Disney Plus app. But many users often turn on the narrator by mistake when they don’t want it. And then they don’t know how to shut it off again.  So in this post, we show how to take off the narrator feature on Disney Plus, as follows.
