    Narrator


    It's hard for me to explain how much I dislike Narrator that comes with Windows 10 and how much I am ticked of at MS for not giving us a way to remove it. They are forcing it on us. I've done everything including deleting the file but it comes right back. I can click on it and select exit, but it has a mind or its own and comes right back. I even set the column on the voice as low as it will go, but it comes back and speaks as it d**** well pleases. I can mute my system but I still get that heavy blue line. So---does anyone have a way to get it completely out of my sight? If so I'll buy you a beer or a cup of coffee.

    Thanks

    Hello Frank,

    Do you have Narrator turned off in Settings like below?

    In addition, pressing the Win+Ctrl+Enter keys will toggle Narrator on and off.

    Hey Frank1,
    Also check .... Control Panel\Ease of Access Center ... there are a few places in there, where it could be turned on.
    On the Left - Change Sign-In Options
    Under the Explore All Settings - Go thru each and make sure Narrator is unchecked

    Now this is strange. Itís OK now and I havenít done a thing since I sent in this post. But now it wonít come on. I had previously turned it off as you mentioned but it would come back on. Now it wonít come on. So I just checked what Eagle suggested and it had the option to turn it on. So it apparently is off. Maybe the last time I turned it off in Settings I did something else but now itís seems to be off for good. You have both got to know this. The last time I turned it off in Settings I was really pi**** off because it would get on my nerves whenever I clicked on something I heard it talking to me. So after I turned It off I said to myself, ďThere you dirty sun of * *****. Maybe now you keep your da** mouth shut. I really did! Do you suppose I came on to something new that has outsmarted Microsoft?

    Great news Frank.

    I'm not sure unless you may have mistakenly turned on Narrator with its keyboard shortcut.
