    My Chromebook is reading to me and I don't know how to get it to stop

    So I recently got a new Samsung Chromebook Series 5 550 that I'm still trying to figure out. It's a little unfamiliar to me, but so far I'm liking it okay.

    My obese, electronic-obsessed cat has also taken a liking to it. She enjoys sleeping on electronics, and who am I to deprive her of her happiness? Unfortunately, the last time she walked all over and took a nap on my keyboard, she seemed to awaken the wrath of some electronic, female voice. My chromebook will not stop making annoying dinging noises, and a monotonous voice is reading and narrating everything I do. In some twisted sense of humor, it even read aloud, "My Chromebook is reading to me and I don't know how to get it to stop" as I typed it in.

    I have no idea what my cat triggered, or how to turn it off. I tried restarting and it didn't help. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't imagine living happily with this voice for much longer.

    You can try doing a hard reset which is done by logging out, flipping the switch on the right side of your chromebook, when the frowny face comes up you can hit ctrl+alt+D once the reset has started you can flip the switch back.

    Dont forget to tell him that it will erase any locally stored data, so move it to the cloud before you attempt the factory restore.
