    Hey guys! I'm new around here and hoenstly, I registered only because I have a problem. I dont know why and where my iMac started to speak, I son't have activated ant voice service like VoiceOver or whatever. I'm really desperate and I dont know what to do.
    I let you an example, you can hear it at 00:07, 00:25 and 00:36.
    Thanks a lot

    Check the Date and Time under system preferences and make sure you don't have it set to announce the time.

    sounds like it activates when you click on something so watch out for when exactly it activates and go on from there

    some1 could be connecting to your computer through ssh and using the say command
