I loaded up Minecraft and all of a sudden these messages appeared which described everything I was doing.

I don't know where these messages came from, since I didn't install a mod intended to produce them.

The only mods I have installed are Optifine, Iron Chests, Better Furnaces, and X-Ray.

The descriptive messages I'm referring to can be seen in the lower right corner of this screenshot:


Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Those are closed captions you can find out more about them here: https://minecraft.wiki/w/Subtitles

If you go into the "Music & Sound" options you should find the option to turn them off.

For clarification, this is not caused by mods.

  • Now I think of it I did turn that on today thanks man you're a hero
