    Now everything I do on my Macbook Air, a voice will repeat everything I do and it's SO ANNOYING! How do I turn it off?

    *Edit*

    I found it. Please lock/delete this topic. Thanks!

    If you have VoiceOver activated, go to System Preferences > Universal Access to turn it off. If you have Speakable Items on, go to the Speech tab in System Preferences to turn it off. You didn't give the cat your admin password, did you? :D

    I was going to suggest having the cat jump on it again, but I see you found Command-Fn5 :)

    LOL. The icon of my admin is a Cat in a Cardboard Box... I got out of the showers and saw my cat sitting on my MBA. When I got him off.. the next thing I know, my MBA wouldn't shut up.

    Thanks for the helpful response gentlemen.

    Install Growl to scare away the cat so this doesn't happen again.

    Too bad the current version of Growl on the Mac App Store doesn't work properly!

    Lion.

    It seems to be a rather big issue too, judging by the comments on the Growl App on the Mac App Store.
