My Mac is a bit chatty when I leave it alone. It says 'authentication application' a couple of times for no seeming reason. I do not have screen lock on or anything like that. My desired behaviour is for it to remain silent when I'm not using it, you know, like any sighted user would expect.
suggestions of turning VoiceOver off when I'm away from the computer will not be appreciated.
On a MacBook Pro 14 running the latest OS.
