    I'm running Tiger. The computer now talks to me. Every letter I type it speaks. It also tells me about the applications I open up etc.

    Also, whatever window I'm working in now gets a black border around it. Any ideas?

    I think my daughter (18 mos) hit a few keys or something, and I can't figure out what she did!

    Thanks!

    it's Most likely somthing under Univeral access in System Prefs.

    Your Daughter probably pressed cmd then f5.

    Go into System Prefs the Universal Access the click on voice over utility.

    LOL It was pretty bluntly funny...

    I was going through the same thing today actually, couldn't understand why the computer was doing wierd things, turns out I'd turned voice over on in the middle of Physics...

    I'll be getting her haute cuisine when Leopard comes out.
    You think she will want to talk to me then?
