For people with disabilities, this feature will be indispensable. But if the user has no vision problems, then repetition each time a key is pressed, in most cases leads to a negative reaction to the built-in assistant. And the user seeks to disable the annoying feature.
The lineup of equipment for watching television content is updated every year. A voice assistant is present on every Samsung TV. And if the inclusion of the voice dubbing function in all models is equally activated the first time it is turned on, then the algorithm for disabling it in different models of TVs is performed by a different set of commands.
