A few days ago, my Windows 10 desktop starting reading everything out loud. That includes everything I'm typing and things my mouse is highlighting. Why is this happening? Is this a Windows 10 feature that I don't know about? How can I turn it off?

If you’ve accidentally turned on Windows Narrator, follow these steps to put a sock in its mouth:

    Click the Start menu, and choose Control Panel.

    Click the Ease of Access category.

    Click the Ease of Access category.
    Choose the Ease of Access Center.

    Choose Ease of Access Center
    In the Explore All Settings area, click Use the Computer without a Display.

    In the Explore All Settings area, click Use the Computer without a Display.
    Uncheck the checkbox called “Turn On Narrator,” then click the OK button. (The narrator will continue to announce everything you’re doing.)

    Uncheck the checkbox called “Turn On Narrator.”
    Finally, either restart your PC or close the Narrator’s program icon from your taskbar.

The Narrator will no longer return whenever you restart your computer.
