    Which OS am I running
    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

    To check what version of Mac OS X you're running:

    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.

    are you sure it's apple +F5? i just tried that and all it did was turn the volume up...

    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...

    you may have to use the fn key with the combo MacHeadCase gave you.
