How to Turn Off Audio Guide 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 descriptive audio guide track. In that recording, an announcer tells what’s going on on the screen as the regular show plays. You can hear this audio guide by turning it on in the Disney Plus app. Unfortunately, many users report accidentally enabling this voice when they don’t want it, and then they don’t know how to remove it. So in this piece, we show you how to turn off the audio guide feature on Disney Plus, as follows.
