How to Disable the Narrator on ASUS

By Jeff Grundy

Narrator is a part of the Microsoft Accessibility suite that reads text aloud on a page or in a document. Narrator can be useful on ASUS notebooks or tablets with smaller screens if you have trouble viewing small print or text. By default, Narrator reads all screen text once you enable it, so you might find it distracting in some applications that don’t require you to view hard-to-read small text. If you want to disable the Narrator on your ASUS system, you can do so in a few seconds.

Step 1

Open an application window or Web page that prompts the Narrator to begin reading text aloud.

Step 2

Press the "Caps Lock" and "Esc" keys simultaneously, and click "No" when prompted to exit Narrator.

Step 3

Click "General" in the Narrator Settings window, and then click the "Control whether Narrator starts when I sign in" link. The "Use the computer without a display" window opens.

Step 4

Click the "Turn on Narrator" check box to remove the check mark and disable the option. Click "Apply," and then click "OK."

Step 5

Click "Exit" in the Narrator Settings window to stop the utility from reading text aloud.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also access the Narrator Settings window from a Run box. Press "Windows-R" to launch the Run box dialog, type "narrator" into the Open field and press "Enter."
  • You can start Narrator at any time by pressing "Windows-Enter" simultaneously.
