How to Disable the Narrator on ASUS

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 donโ€™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.
