Jaws keeps saying “MK cursor enhancements”

Thanks, but that has no effect on the problem. Must be something set in the computer causing this since I have just installed latest version of Jaws 15 and the same thing is happening. Marla
You might want to try to see what the echo screen mode is set on. There are
three modes. Press the Insert plus the letter S key to toggle between screen
echo highlighted text, all text or none. This might resolve the issue.

Subject: Jaws keeps saying "MK cursor enhancements"

I’m using windows 7 with Jaws 12.01186 on a netbook. Every time Jaws is
turned on, the voice announces “MK cursor enhancements” and repeats this
randomly every 5-20 seconds. My sighted spouse tells me there are no
visible words or signals on the screen to go along with this announcement.
I believe MK stands for “Magic Keystrokes”, but I have never installed a
“Magic” program on this or any other computer. problem persists no matter
what program I am using with Jaws and is very disruptive. I also had a
version of Jaws 13 on the same computer and the same thing was happening.
I uninstalled both Jaws 12 and Jaws 13, and downloaded a clean version of
Jaws 12 , but the problem persists.

I do not know why this has suddenly started happening. Anyone else had this
happen and is there a way to get rid of it?
