Are you being harassed by your PS5 which reads absolutely everything that is happening on your screen? You might have missed the option to turn off the text-to-speech while you were setting up your console..

Here are some steps to turn off your PS5's text-to-speech.

  1. Go to the PS5 home screen.
  2. Click on the Settings icon at the top right of your screen. It is between the search button and your profile.
  3. Once in the Settings menu, select Accessibility, which should be the second option.
  4. On the left side of the screen, select Screen Reading, which should bring up more options.
  5. Click the Disable Text-to-Speech option to turn it off. If the following options like Playback speed are grayed out, the narrator is turned off.

If you can't find the right option, here's a very helpful video guide ..

Text-to-speech is a good accessibility option for those who need it, but could get very annoying for people who don't.
