    Turn VoiceOver off: System Preferences >> Universal Access >> VoiceOver Off
    Change Keyboard Layout: System Preferences >> International >> Input Menu >> Tick the one you want and untick the one the cat has ticked
    Set fn-Buttons: System Preferences >> Keyboard & Mouse >> Untick "Use all F1, F2 etc keys as standard function keys

    obviously a great feature if you need it - but damn irritating otherwise.

    How's the cat?

    cat saga

    the cat is oblivious as always, managed to find shortcut for the voice over cmd and f5 turns it on and off, that was also the cure for the keyboard as well oddly enough.
    cheers for the reply's
