"The feature is called 'VoiceOver'.

To disable it use the Universal Preference Pane or press ""Command-F5""

Preference Pane:

Go to the Apple Menu and choose System Preferences...
You then want to click on Universal Access (bottom right) and choose the radio button that says Off under VoiceOver. You'll also notice there is a keyboard command to turn this on (9/10 why it gets turned on): Command - F5 which can be used to turn it off as well."
