my computer has suddenly started to talk to me and tell me what i'm doing--how do I stop it?
I have a Mac OS-10 which has operated smoothly for quite a while. This morning, for no reason I can figure out, an impersonal computer voice started to tell me where I was going, .i.e, when I'd go to one site, it would announce I was there. Every so often it will repeat "TEN FOUR FOX HAS NEW WINDOW." When I hit the caps just now, it said "CAPS LOCK ON" and just the reverse when I took them off. This is too creepy. How do I get rid of the voice that was never there until now? Did I somehow enable the voice by hitting a wrong key?

I suspect you accidentally enabled Voice Over.
Go to System Preferences. Click on "Universal Access". Click on the tab "Seeing" There is a button for Voice Over, make sure "off" is selected.
If it was on, you probably had enabled it by accident by pressing Command-F5 (or Fn-Command-F5).
Hope this helps.
