    How to Turn On or Off Narrator Echo Toggle Keys when Turned On or Off in Windows 10


    Narrator is a screen-reading app built into Windows 10.

    Narrator lets you use your PC without a display or mouse to complete common tasks if youre blind or have low vision. It reads and interacts with things on the screen, like text and buttons. Use Narrator to read and write email, browse the internet, and work with documents.

    Specific commands let you navigate Windows, the web, and apps, as well as get info about the area of the PC you're in. Navigation is available using headings, links, landmarks, and more. You can read text (including punctuation) by page, paragraph, line, word, and character as well as determine characteristics like font and text color. Efficiently review tables with row and column navigation.

    Narrator also has a navigation and reading mode called Scan Mode. Use it to get around Windows 10 using just the up and down arrows on your keyboard. You can also use a braille display to navigate your PC and read text.

    When Narrator is turned on, you will hear Narrator echo toggle keys (ex: "Number lock on" or "Number lock off") when the toggle keys (Caps lock, Num lock, Scroll lock) are turned on or off by default.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off hearing Narrator echo toggle keys when they are turned on or off in Windows 10 for your account.

  2. Upgraded to Winndows 10 and cannot turn narrator off

    As I said in my discription of the problem I tried the windows/enter but it just turned the clear narrator on and off and did nothing to the one with a bad echo. That did not change anything and I also tried the settings/ease where I turned the narrator
    on and off and it did the same thing as the windows/enter it turned the clear narrator on and off but left the narrator with an echo constantly on. Please give a solution to getting rid of the narrator with an echo.

  3. Upgraded to Winndows 10 and cannot turn narrator off

    I was opporating with Windows 7 Professional. A popup window from microsoft offered to upgrade to Winodws 10. I agreed and it downloaded and installed Windows 10. While it was booting Windows 10 the first time the Narrator started with a bad echo narration
    and has continued. I went to settings/ease of access to turn it off but it was off. When I turned it on a clear voice started narrating but the echoed narrator contined in the background. When I turned the narrator off again the clear narrating voice quit
    but the annoying one with the echo has contined. I tried the windows/enter but it just turned the clear narrator on and off and did nothing the the one with a bad echo. Please help.

  6. Upgraded to Winndows 10 and cannot turn narrator off

    Results are the same. It turns on the clear narrator and then turns it off again but the narrator with the irritating echo still remains. So what else can I try?
