But it turns out that there’s a very simple way to shut up the constant vocal instructions from the self-service machines in supermarkets, the Sun reports.

Like all of us, MoneySavingExpert.com blogger Jordan Cox finds that supposedly helpful voice very annoying indeed, and he made a video to show us how to silence the constant nagging and make your shopping time a far more pleasant experience.

And, who knew, it’s all down to a simple mute button found on the screen of the checkout terminal.

The button can be found at the bottom centre of most self service checkout screens – yep, they’re actually hiding it in plain sight.

We honestly never even knew this button existed but it’s a definite game changer!
