    My brother has an '07 15" macbook pro. His son mashed a bunch of buttons on it & now there is this black bar that is on his screen that tells him what is open or what he has highlighted. It basically just says what he's doing.
    Anyone know how to get rid of it?
    He can stretch it & shrink it to an extent, but can't get it to close or disappear.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Open System Preferences > Universal Access, then turn VoiceOver off.
