Hi there,

Not sure if this is a Mac related question or if it is just a Firefox issue. Anyhow, I sat on my Mac keyboard by accident and managed to turn on some speech function on Firefox, with the result that the browser keeps telling me what I am doing... Can someone tell me how to turn this off?

Thanks!!!

Go to "System Preferences" > "Universal Access" (make sure you're on the "Seeing" tab)...then turn "Voice Over" to "Off".

That should do it.

It's probably saying, "Please don't sit on me again!"

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
