A friend of mine has 2 macs. I have never really used Macs much. He has heard that I know how to fix computers and wants to know if I can get his Voice to Text programs working.

Apparently I need to know what OS is running.
1. How do I do this.
2. Can you please point me in the direction of a good mac tutorial site.

Thanks

Apple menu (top left corner) > About This Mac

Cog 0.07 audio player - cogx.org
AAC, AIFF, APE, FLAC, M4A, MP3, MPC, OGG, SHN, WAV, WV, tracker formats,
VG music formats, cue sheets, M3U & PLS, Growl, Last.fm, Apple Remote

The good Mac tutorial site is here.

Welcome to Mac-Forums, Benaiah.

If your friend has Mac OS X 10.4.x, he can turn on/off VoiceOver by typing ⌘ + F5, if that is what he/she is looking for. I can't remember what previous OS X versions' keyboard shortcuts were.

There ya go...

If VoiceOver doesn't launch with that key combo, maybe you have used that key combo for something else through the System Preferences' Keyboard Shortcuts? That's the first thing I would think of...
