    My Imac (OSX 10.6.4) has started to make funny sounds which I don't have a clue where it comes from, probaply an application. I closed all apps without finder but it is still there. It sounds like a digital voice saying five words I can't recognice. I comes in an irregulary fashion appx 1 time an hour so it's quite hard to catch.

    Any clues of what it is or how to catch it?

    Have a look at the Activity Monitor, you can order the processes by processor activity and see which process is active when you hear the sounds.
