    My brother ****ed up my OS X stuff with these crappy boxes. I AM ANGRY AT HIM!

    How do I get rid of it? Please help me quick as he could die soon.

    Apple Menu > System Preferences > Universal Access ...turn off Voiceover.

    Turn on your speakers to get the full effect first though.

    I figured it out just before your reply. Luckily my speakers were off though.

    And you are really living up to your screen name. Thanks TheAnswer!!

    It's also a key-combo to turn it on and off, which is probably what your brother did. I just turn the entire Universal Access section off because I never use them and I hate it when people accidently turn them on.

    Haha. I just turned VoiceOver on. Immediately I hear "iChat needs attention! Instant Message from __".

    This would be great to pull a prank on someone if they had no idea what they were doing on their Mac. It would get so annoying so fast!

    Maybe you should lock your screen ;) i use my own Utility Lock and just use a simple 1 digit password so not so secure but who the hell would guess that :p

    My main password is kinda long (secure) Is there a way to use a different password to wake from sleep?

    That would defeat the purpose of having a strong password.

    I work with audio, therefor my computer is admitting sound most of the time. I got rid of the hot keys that would turn on voice over. I may have thrown the computer if I ever "heard" it, even though just seeing it hurts. I do have a friend though that is legally blind enough to get a free ride in college, and also blind enough to just not be able to make out whats on the screen. So for her the Universal Access is a life saver.

    Utility Lock uses a separate password from your login one, so you can have it whatever you want if you use it as your replacement to the prebuilt lock tool in OSX.

    PS. Strong passwords are not always about length ;) i mean sure brute force could break my password but what average idiot will punch 9 for the password? *I do not advertise this as a security fact, but for protection from your 6 year old brother im sure it will work*

    I don't get why you wouldn't at least make your password two characters, making it over ten times more difficult to break.
