My Computer Won't Stop Talking to ME!!!

I somehow turned out this function and my computer tells me every command that I am doing. It is driving me nuts. I am a new mac user and can't figure out how to turn it off. Its like in tutorial mode or something. Can someone please help!
Is it bad that I am looking forward to Quicken '08 for my mac?

Did you happen to mess around in the Universal Access under the Preferences? Under the Finder select Preferences, then select Universal Access. Turning off the VoiceOver should solve your problem.
