The grandkids was over the weekend playing with the G4 iMac with Tiger installed. Some how they have turned on the speech/voice control. It will speak when I open programs, minimize//maximize or click apps in finder.

How they heck do I turn this off? I didn't know it had this capability. I looked in the speech application in Finder, System Preferences, to turn it off but it was already off.

It's getting on my nerves.

Thnx.

Yes, conflicting statements. I noticed it two weeks ago but the past weekend is when I noticed it again. I thought I had it off the previous two weeks ago. I hardly use the iMac. It would only speak when using firefox or typing text in yahoo messenger, that I noticed the speech. If that make sense! Confused
