  4. Weird black boxes on my screen!?

My kids were playing around on the computer and turned the voice on somehow and it was driving my nutty! I accidentally placed a book on my keyboard and somehow the system was turned on. The directions on my MAC did not help me, but this did. I appreciate getting my computer back. Glad to have it back now. Thank you very very very much….

I though I got a virus and intended to get it thrown away…. Thank you for the simple fix! I tried almost every key combination on the keyboard to swap from screen to screen in a Citrix Application.

I wish I could claim it was my cat. I agree that the person who shared this solution is holy -: You are all holy too! Thank you!!! Thank you so very much, my son hit my glass of water and I worried the keyboard was water logged but this voice activation came on. Thank you for helping me resolve this issue so easily. My toddler got hold of my computer!

Thank you so much for helping get rid of the crazy voice!!! In my case it was active only on the login screen I have multiple users. Thank you, Thank you.
