How to turn off narration describing what is happening in the program (apparently a service for the blind?)

Watching “Young Sheldon”, I notice there is a woman’s voice narrating the program, describing what is happening on the screen. I don’t know how this got switched on, but I want to switch it off—how?

I found the solution by googling “How to turn off narration for the blind Directv”. This came up:

”You can turn the Talking Guide feature on or off anytime. Want to manage more Talking Guide settings, like speaking rate? Press MENU, navigate to Settings, press SELECT, and then choose Accessibility. From there, press the down arrow once and select Talking Guide.Apr 30, 2021”
