    My laptop wont stop speaking

    While trying to help my husband fix his sound issue on his laptop I hit the windows key and I and enter believing that it would open the control panel. It didn't. I now have sound out of a headset but every time I touch anything a voice is speaking exactly what I am doing and there is a blue square appearing around anything I touch. It's very frustrating since his language is set to Swedish and I understand very little. Can anyone explain how to correct this issue I'm guessing it has something to do with Cortana.

    I believe you have activated "Narrator" which is a built-in function that reads the screen for sight impaired users. If so, there should be an icon on the Taskbar that looks like a monitor with a text baloon (like in a comic strip). Click on that icon and a dialog will open, the last item on that dialog will be "Exit Narrator". Click that and the Narrator will stop.
