HI,   If the Mac is saying everything you do it is because the "Voiceover" options for handicapped people is set to "ON."
Quick fix: Hold down the apple key (the one next to the space bar) and hit the F5 key.  This toggles Voiceover on an off.
The detailed way which allows you access to set all handicapped preferences:
1.  Go to and open Preferences. 2.  Choose "Speech." 3.  Click on "Text to Speech." 4.  Click on "Open Universal Access Preferences." 5.  Click on "Seeing" if it is not already selected. 6.  Under "Voiceover" check the circle by "OFF"

Is it true that his first wife said Donald Trump kept a copy of Mein Kampf by his bedside and said its author was a great leader?

Trump then recalled, "Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of 'Mein Kampf,' and he's a Jew."
Brenner added that Davis did acknowledge that he gave Trump a book about Hit**r.
"But it was 'My New Order,' Hit ***'s speeches, not 'Mein Kampf,'" Davis reportedly said. "I thought he would find it interesting. I am his friend, but I'm not Jewish."

I'm running MyScrib on Apple. The only way we could figure out to get it to 'read' the words was to use the curser to highlight the words and then use a key combination (Command S) to get it to read. This...

MyScribe. You're saving. Not reading at the cursor. Command-S always means 'save'...though you'd think you would get a requester for where to save it, and it's common enough an activity that it shouldn't be a show-stopper straightaway. Command-X; always cut. Command-C; always copy. Command-V, always paste.
I have this Dell keyboard (on an iMac) that sinks the nail with print on the front of the keys Microsoft finally understands have set reservations for select-all, save, redo (Y), underline, italics, open, print, those mentioned, plus new. Your memory works for that though, too!

It sounds like you want to read up on Apple Speech-To-Text, which shows up under all programs' Program(MyScribe, on the case)/Services/Speech menu...but that's not the convenient way to use it! Go to preferences and pick out speech, read there; and set a hotkey like a spare mousebutton or command-alt-L to get the selection or page read to you. Hit F1 or click for help on that Speech page; or even pore through Apple's pages for speech, or try hitting the magnifying glass for Spotlight and type Speech! Those are just some of the ways to get fixed up. Especially since MyScribe has its own way of doing things just to be precious:

Per the FAQ for MyScribe; looks like you just use the Voice menu to pick a voice, hit F2 (or pick out Enable Speech Help from the same menu,) and hit spacebar to get it reading (or pause.)

If you don't like the way MyScribe acts, it has a lot to do with how the program was written with limited Mac and other sensibilities. Clearly it's trying to be Adobe Acrobat (and Distiller and stuff) or a groupware program for sharing class notes and markup, and is not. You probably want EndNote or a TeX frontend, or one of the outboard brain apps reviewed in About This Particular Macintosh at some point if MyScribe doesn't play well with Mac OS X Accessibility or suit you otherwise.

F7 means Function Key Shorted or Stuck Button.

Have you tried to Disconnect it for few few, say 30 minutes and then Turn it Back ON. If not try it and also Try to Press Cancel / Clear Buttons, if that help the situation.

Unless, you need to replace touch pad or clock assembly (also called the ERC) or attempt to un-stick button.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

When I turn on the power for mac book , it's screeming for hours

Try this:

Turn your laptop on, but hold the "option" key down when you click the power button. Hold it until you see the drive picture come up. Double click on the drive and it should work for you. Once in, go to applications foler and find disc utility. double click it and find repair disc option. Hit that and it will let you know if there are any errors on the disc. If they are hit repair and it should be business as usual.
