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

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.
