Keyboard mode

Have I done something to my computer or can I turn off the voice that is telling me all sorts of things? such as go to Waitrose, return to home page, etc?

Oh dear Wendy - you are hearing voices now!

I am not sure what you mean, is it just happening on our site?

Keyboard mode

Having gone through the news and a game or two, I can safely say it is only on this site that I hear voices. The lady has just announced that the keyboard is enabled and that I am in Coffee Break, and it is highlighted, she has also mentioned that there are barbecue recipes here.

I think I might go back to bed and start the day again!

Love

Wendy and the voice!

Wendy, you've clicked something!

This site can be really annoying sometimes, when you accidentally run the mouse over a link .

I just experimented by clicking in your OP and a bloke tried to tell me about Waitrose wines. Nearest Waitrose is 80 miles away!!

Keyboard

Hi Welsh Cookie

I thought I must have clicked on something but for the life of meI don't know what it is! I'm hoping Noreen will be able to help me.

At the minute I've turned the volume off because the woman kept interrupting me. Now you tell you get a bloke talking to you!

Finally, because I'm not computer literate, what does OP mean?

Thanks

Wendy xx

OP -thank you

Thank you for enlightening me. I should have realised what it meant, what a fool I am!

The voices have stopped (so far)so it's a case of keep taking the tablets, Wendy on both counts - hearing things and making sure brain is in gear!! I'd better take more care with the keyboard, too!

Thank you

Voices!!

No voices over here, Wendy!!

It must be very annoying, though. Hope you've sorted out the problem by now.

VOICES

I'm not hearing voice (yet) but yesterday I had some problems with the site. Instead of the video starting immediately I got a "private video" sign and as soon as I clicked on any of the posts the whole lot vanished. This went on for a few hours and then all returnes to norman. I only had difficulties on this site. Did anyone else have any similar problems? I don't think it was a virus as everything else worked perfectly.

Voices

Rasdora, Thursday is the day our Cookery School lessons changeover and it takes a while for the page to reload, you were probably looking at it while the process was happening. We then unlock the video from private to public once everything is in place.

Voices over

I've stopped hearing voices, Sonya, and I hope that will be the last of them. I must have clicked on something that perhaps helps visually impaired people. I wonder if the computer goes back to its original settings when it's switched off as I can't hear it today.

I'm glad you didn't hear them as although it was a pleasant voice it was annoying when I was in Coffee Break and the voice told me where I was and I answered her saying, I know, I know!

A 100 lines, Wendy, I must not answer an automatic voice, I must not answer, etc... I still must keep taking the tablets!

Thanks to Noreen and Welsh Cookie for helping me.

Audio description

My husband clicked something on the TV zapper and enabled audio description.

I couldn't for the life of me turn it off. I think I tried every button and menu until I put my reading glasses on and found the right button!

SITE PROBLEMS

Hello Noreen, Many thanks for your explanation, I will know to be more patient in future.

reading glasses!

You know, having been near sighted as a kid (and still being near sighted ) nobody told me I'd reach a point where I couldn't see ANYTHING.

GRRRR.
