Hello all, When I turn on my MacBook I get a voice saying login, my computer and then enter password. I know I activated this but I now want to stop it as it's a little bit annoying. The thing is I don't know how to, can someone please help.

Thanks.

You can turn voice-over off inside of the Universal Access section of your system preferences.

Go to sys prefs, unlock the lock if need be. Go to "login options" in the bottom of the toolbar at the left. Then uncheck "use voiceover at login"

I had the same issue when I started using voiceover, when you disable voice over it doesnt always disable the check mark it left on the login "login options" screen.
