    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.

    Narrator's voice can emphasize formatted text like bold, italics, underline or all caps without adding verbosity, i.e. using changes in speed, pitch and/or volume to emphasize changes rather than descriptions like start bold and end bold.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off having the Narrator voice put more emphasis on formatted text for your account in Windows 10.

    NArrator won't turn off

    If Narrator only activates in Minecraft, it is not Windows Narrator. There is a setting in Minecraft that activates a voice and sounds. Look at the help files for turning it off. Or check at the Gaming Forum as suggested..

  6. Narrator voice randomly speaking on Windows 10

    I did try it, and yes it did show up in the taskbar. When I turned it back off, it stayed off; so I really don't have any further suggestions as to why your narrator voice is randomly speaking when you have it disabled other than the possibility that it is somehow not being disabled when you select that option.

    Perhaps someone else will have some further insight to the glitch you are experiencing and a possible remedy.

    Post back if you find any further information about the situation.

    Sorry I could not be of further assistance.

    EDIT:

    I did find however, that if you access the narrator from Control Panel, this screen comes up:

    So essentially, a different set of settings is accessible from what I can see:
