I was playing with the text-to-speech system preference on my Mac Mini. It was fun at first, but I got tired of it and turned it off... Mostly! The login window refused to shut up. I cant figure out how to turn the darn thing off.

If I hear Fred say "Edit Secure Text" one more time, I'll go batty!!

Go to system preferences > speech > text to speech> and uncheck all the boxes. Or you can select whisper! JK

Those boxes ARE unchecked already. Any other switches I can throw? I appreciate your help.

Other trouble shooting info:

1) The voice in text-to-speech is set to Vicci, but it is clearly Fred's voice in the login window.
2) I have multiple user accounts, but mine is the only one with admin privileges.
3) Tiger 10.4.2 running on the baseline MacMini (40GB, 1.2 GHz)
4) System Preferences > Universal Access > Voice Over is OFF

System Preferences > Accounts > Click the lock to make changes > Type in your password > Click Login Options> Uncheck Use Voiceover at login window.

That should do the trick!

I didn't realize that option was there in the Accounts settings. Learn something new everyday!
