It sounds like that person has speakable items turned on.  To turn it off, go to System Preferences and click on the Speech System Preference located in the System section.  Then you should see a Speech Recognition tab near the top.  Press that and then you will see a radio button to turn speakable items off.  Also while you're at it, click the Text to Speech tab and make sure that the Announce and Speak options are turned off as well.
