    Black Outline around clickable areas
    How do I get rid of a black stroke outline that appears around clickable areas? This happend in the finder, all applications, everything. It doesn't interfere with programs but leaves a trail of everything I've clicked on. When I click on something new, the old black stroke disappears and a new one appears. I've attached a screen shot of the problem. I've ran disk utility and that hasn't worked. any suggestions please??

    Black Boxes
    Hi there,

    I'm not sure what I've done but black rectangular boxes keep appearing anywhere I click my cursor.

    anyone know what they are or how to stop them?

    Thanks

    Oh man... I just know someone posted about this a few weeks ago but can't find it! Think it had something to do with a cat walking across a keyboard and getting something to kick in. Universal Access or I dunno... Gah!

    Question Bold black outline boxes?
    Hi

    I've been using a mac now for a couple of weeks after years on a pc, wondering if anybody could help me out with a problem I've got today...

    I've developed a black box that is highlighting items on my desktop (if I click on anything on my desktop I get a blod black box outline around it). That doesn't overly bother me but it's also happening in Safari. Everytime I click on a box to type it has this same bold black outline in it. Again the box itself doesn't initially bother me but if you then scroll down the screen the box becomes static the scrolling happens underneath it.

    I presume I got it there by mistakingly hitting a few keys but I've spent the last hour trying to find a way to turn it off but I'm coming up blank.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks to all.

    Welcome to Mac-Forums, vorhees!

    This has already been discussed in Mac-Forums in a few threads, one of them being this one. By your description, this sounds like what you are experiencing at the moment.

    Let us know if that fixes it! :girl:

    Need help with incredibly obnoxious problem
    Somehow, my Mac got switched to a setting that narrates everything I do in a robotic voice. Right now, it is reading out every letter I type. It tells me when "ichat needs attention", and when I open a web page it reads out the address. This is making me go absolutely nuts as I can't figure out what I might have done. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also, there is a strange black box that is always surrounding something on my computer. On the desktop, a random icon will be selected. Right now, it is around the "back" button. Perhaps this has something to do with it

    Thanks a lot

    Welcome to Mac-Forums, frucyjuit. You probably have switched on the Universal Access, in the System Preferences.

    Just do the key combo ⌘ + F5 and that ought to shut it down.
