Turn Off Audio Description on Disney Plus

The Disney Plus streaming service came online in 2019. So through this offering, you can watch many movies and shows in the Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, or Marvel collections. Plus, for the blind and vision impaired viewers, many of these shows have an audio description track. Thus when you play this track, you hear an announcer telling what’s going on on the screen as the show plays.  You can hear these descriptions by turning them on in the Disney Plus app. Unfortunately, many users report accidentally enabling these narrations when they don’t want them. Then they wonder how to stop them.  So in this piece, we give directions to turn off Disney Plus audio description feature.
