No one enjoys unwanted interruptions, especially when navigating the perilous waters in Sea of Thieves. An unsolicited audio description or narrator can be a real distraction when you’re trying to steer your galleon through a storm or fight off a crew of skeletons. This guide aims to help you turn off the narrator and regain your immersive experience in the high seas of this exciting game.
Turning Off the Audio Descriptions/Narrator
The first step to achieving a narrator-free gameplay in Sea of Thieves is to dive into your settings. You’ll find a treasure trove of options here, but the one you’re interested in is hiding all the way at the bottom. This is where the ‘Accessibility’ section comes into play. It’s an often-overlooked section, but its significance in customizing your gaming experience cannot be overstated.
Within the realm of ‘Accessibility’, you’ll find the feature ‘Text-to-Speech Override’. As a gamer myself, I can affirm that this feature is a hidden gem for some players, but it can also be a nuisance for others. Disabling this option will cease the vocal feedback from your game, helping you focus more on the sound of the crashing waves and the creaking of your ship.
But we’re not done yet. There’s another feature that can disrupt the silent harmony you’re seeking – ‘Speech-to-Text Override’. This feature works in tandem with the previous one, and disabling it will ensure that your game is free from any unwarranted audio descriptions.
Once you’ve made these adjustments, it’s time to restart your console. I know, it can be a pain when you’re eager to get back into the game, but trust me, it’s worth it. The console needs a moment to digest these changes, and rebooting it will ensure these settings are properly applied. So, turn off your console, grab a quick snack, and before you know it, you’ll be ready to set sail again.
