Please HELP ME get rid of this voice on my computer!


Baby hit something and now whenever I roll over something with my mouse or type this voice says the letter or the name of the webpage or if I adjust the volume it tells me what volume (i.e. "volume setting 29") It's driving me nuts!!! It's like the baby enabled a hearing impaired setting or something. I have Ubuntu 14.04 and Firefox. Help?

freethemushrooms,

If it's Orca screen reader that is the problem, then run this in Terminal:

Code:
gksudo gedit  /etc/xdg/autostart/orca-autostart.desktop
change

Code:
NoDisplay=true
to

Code:
NoDisplay=false
File > Save.

Then:

System > Preferences > Startup Applications > Startup Programs > Untick box for Orca screen reader.
