Why is Tivo announcing that you’re fast forwarding?

Tivo is in Screen Reader Mode. Hold down the A button for 2 seconds to turn it off.

Or hold it down for 2 seconds to turn it on and annoy your family members or roommates! Or your pets! My dog niece leaves the room when Tivo starts announcing things. There’s also apparently a setting that will silence all Tivo audio notifications which is great.
