    Suddenly my startup/login is accompanied by a voice. It tells me every letter I type.

    How do I turn this feature off?

    COMMAND-F5 should disable this. It's the VoiceOver feature in Universal Access. :)

    Does it say out loud what you're typing in your password box too?

    Could be a security issue! :eek:

    On my MBP I have to press fn-Command-F5, but it does not work. That combination turns on/off the voice for all UI events, but it does not disable the login voice.

    Wouldn't be that bad, would it?...



    Are you in the main account? What if you press FN-COMMAND-F5 whilst at the Login Window?...

    The account that you first created. It's an admin account. In the meantime, you should be able to mute the sound at meetings via the keyboard too. :)

    That did it! FN-COMMAND-F5 at the login window.

    Thanks very very much!
