    So Im sitting here, just pressing random keys on the keyboard, when my .Mac starts talking. Everytime I click on something, it reads the text! God, it's annoying. This has happened before but I forgot how to make the computer shutup!! Can someone tell me how to make it stop talking?

    You're talking about your Mac (machine), not .Mac (Apple's web service), right?

    It sounds like you've turned on VoiceOver. Hit Command-F5 (or possibly Command-fn-F5 if you have a laptop) to turn it off.

    The same thing happened to me a couple of months back.:)

    Just go to Universal Access at the preference pane and turn Voice Over off.

    Er, yeah. That's what I mean.

    Yeah, it was VoiceOver. Hitting Command-F5 worked.

    Arigatou Gozaimashita.
