Turn VoiceOver on or off
VoiceOver is available on Apple TV 4K, Apple TV HD or Apple TV (3rd generation) with software version 4.2 or later. Find your Apple TV model below and follow the steps.
On Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD
There are three ways to turn VoiceOver on or off:
- Go to Settings > Accessibility > VoiceOver, then turn VoiceOver on or off.
- Hold the Siri button on your Siri Remote*, then say "Turn VoiceOver on" or "Turn VoiceOver off".
- On your remote, press the Menu button or the Back button three times to turn VoiceOver on or off.
* Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD come with the same remote everywhere. In countries and regions that support Siri, the remote is called Siri Remote. Elsewhere, it’s called Apple TV Remote. Siri works on either remote as long as your Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD has been set up with a language and country or region that supports Siri.
