Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.From what your are describing, it sounds like your can activated the accessibility feature on your computer. Click on the apple logo in the upper left corner and choose Accessibility
Does the computer also speak to you?
hi , I am using my wife's computer ... My mouse wont work and so I am stuck . I don
have a cursor .. Just a blue ring that won't do anything ?
OK, lets try to force shut down your mac first. Press and hold the power button for 40 secs or until the computer shuts off. Then power it back on again
Let me know when the computer is powered back on
By the way, was there anything written in the dialogue box?
Power is back on . There is still a black dialogue box and a blue ring instead of my cursor ..
Can you move the curser now?
when i move it .. The blue ring just makes the icons in the task bar at the bottom highlight .. it is really strange
Can you press Command+F5. What happens?
You are a genius .. That has gotten rid of the box and I now have my cursor back :0)
Yay! Was there anything els I can assist you with?
Can you tell me why this happened please
When your fluffy cat ran walked on your keyboard, it looks like the cat activated "voice over" accessibility feature. Pressing both command+ F5 activates and deactivates it. So if the cat happens to run across the keyboard again and activate it, you now know how to deactivate it :)
