    Firefox keeps talking to me
    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.

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