    Bit of a long shot but...

    I think pressing the Windows logo key and Volume Up button together start the narrator...
    Try tapping the Windows Logo keys a little to make sure they are not stuck down

    I think that happened to me when I pressed the volume-up and home button at the same time. All I did was disable narrator in the ease of access settings in control panel.
