    System Preferences > Universal Access > Voice Over Utility maybe?

    Btw, just out of curiosity, what specific Mac (System Profiler will help) and what specific Mac OS X version (About This Mac) do you have and use?

    Also how come that your Mac does know the location? Do you have some kind of GPS connected? Or are the W-LAN names locations? Are the LOCATIONS named after locations?

    buddy if i knew the answer to that we probably wouldnt have this problem. haha. but i do know that under date and time under time zone it knows your location. there is a little pin that shows where you are.

    I have this problem and it's driving me insane.

    All universal access is off.
    I only have one location in my network settings.
    I trashed all the speech and "universal" preferences.
    I changed the date/time to not automatically update based on location.

    None of this made any difference.

    Any ideas on what would cause this? Help!!
