Customer Question
Uired a new 5...

Uired a new 5 Series Samsung tv and there is an extremely irrational female voice announcing every action I make with the remote - can you please tell me how to remove this option?

Technician's Assistant: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?

Model no UE55M5505AK

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

The menu seems to work but I have the problem on all live tv actions. I haven't used the internet icon yet.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

It's a brand new TV and the voice over facility has been there from the start

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

Nothing else

Thanks for waiting, this feature calls Voice Guide and you can turn it Off by going into TV Menu > System > Accessibility > Voice Guide and set Voice Guide to Off.
