    How do I turn off speech tool / voice-over?
    I must've clicked something by accident and now everything I land on or hover over is "read aloud" to me. Can anyone help?

    Two areas to check:

    - go to Apple drop down menu
    - open "System Preferences"

    Then check the settings for the following two control panels:

    - Speech
    - Universal Access

    Quit VoiceOver
    VoiceOver is toggled Off and On with ⌘F5

    VoiceOver can also be turned Off and On through:  menu > System preferences > Accessibility and select VoiceOver in the side menu.
