Accessibility features in games have progressed significantly in recent years – most new games, whether AAA or not, have additional accessibility options for the players that need them to also enjoy the games. One such option was added to Minecraft in Java version 1.12, and a little later in Bedrock edition – the narrator that reads all the text from the game.
This is a really significant help for visually impaired players who want to play Minecraft, but if you don’t need this option, and it’s on by default, you’re probably wondering how to turn it off. Let’s find out how to turn off the narrator in Minecraft, on all platforms.
