My 19month old son likes to get ahold of my keyboard when I'm away. He managed to turn on some kind of handicapped features. My machine is now talking all the time, and I have little black boxes around things. The back arrow in my browser, the hard drive icon on my desktop.. Etc.. Kinda weird.. I know it's probably very simple to turn it all back off, but I can't figure out where.. Please throw me a bone..
