The voice narrator is a key part of the accessibility options included in newer titles like Rainbow Six Extraction. This helps players who have some level of visual impairment or reading disability to still play video games.
This text-to-speech accessibility option is a great feature for those who have difficulty reading menu text.
However, having a robotic voice read all the menus to players who have good vision and do not have a reading disability can sometimes become irritating or a distraction. Thankfully, there is a way to disable this feature if you do not need it.
Here’s how to turn off the voice narrator in Rainbow Six Extraction.
