    Specs:
    27" iMac (2.7 GHz i5, 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM, 1TB HDD, OS X 10.8.4)
    Annoying black highlight boxes - help?
    I'm running OSX 10.5.4, and I somehow turned on a feature that puts a black highlight box around a component of whatever item/window I have selected. I have no idea how I turned it on and I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to turn it off.

    Haaaalp.

    Cat did it.
    Go to System Preferences > Universal Access and turn voice-over off.

    Cat probably did do it, the bugger. That worked; thanks!

    I knew you had a cat!

    Glad to solve the mystery for you. And the cat comment was quite serious.
