    Hearing Text-Over-Speech Sounds.

    I am having some doubts, moved to Kubuntu as it is the system that asks for the least resources from the computer, having 6gb ram I decided that saving every space was worth it. So shortly after, I am noticing some huge memory spikes, well to say the only thing I have open is 8-12 tabs on my browser at a time, still this should not be exactly memory expensive. Next I noticed that my computer starts to freeze up, this being that I would be allowed to move the mouse around but do nothing else. Now I am hearing Text-Over-Speech sounds at random, concerned as these are usually signs of a virus.

    Pressing {Alt+Super+S} will disable or enable speech dispatcher.

    The last thing you should hear is "screen reader off".

    The Super key is the "windows" key...

    Tried doing so, it did nothing.

    Orca has been buggy for a few years now.
    This should do it though:
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.a11y.applications screen-reader-enabled false
    If you find the need to have Orca again use:
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.a11y.applications screen-reader-enabled true
    What makes you suspect a Virus? What you have written tells us nothing to believe you have one.
