Shock ...and I didn't even ask it any questions!

Hello Lovelies...long time no see Smile

This started about 15 minutes ago and I thought it was just one website, but no, it's narrating everything I do. Not within a site thank heavens, but every tab switch, menu AND the drop down options and their shortcuts. I must have turned on something accidentally but I've had a look around and nothing is leaping out at me.

Can someone point me at the "Off" switch please? Ta muchly.

VoiceOver is f*cking awesome

Instead of paying 1000 euros for a screen reader (JAWS, Window-Eyes), Mac users get a decent one for free.

Jawsome.

I'm no expert, but I fake one on teh Internets

At least now I know it's there, I've only had this thing for 2 years!
I know, hard to believe isn't it? Laughing out loud

Well, NVDA is free and Orca with Gnome/Linux is free but frankly, they use Espeak which I can't stand the sound of. Sounds horrible! JAWS and VoiceOver had a nice sound... I can listen to them twice as fast as the Espeakers.
