    My gf borrowed my MBP for the weekend.

    Now that Im using it, it keeps talking and reading everything I click or point, I know it has something to do with VoiceOver or something... but I have no idea how to turn it off, it's annoying!!

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm pretty sure there is a keyboard shortcut for that. That's probably how you turned it on :)

    LOL, my first thought when I read the title was "this person is crazy". I see I was (thankfully) mistaken. :D

    just curious, was it a sexy female voice or an arnold schartzenager voice? Those are the only two voices I could possibly conceive it being. any other would be just be crazy.
