I am using Windows 10, Jaws 17, and am not experiencing the issue you describe. Jaws just says the word, then selected.

Subject: Key Announcement and JAWS 17
Dear fellow listers:
I have been less than impressed with JAWS 17 and almost daily revert to JAWS 16.
One thing that continues to annoy me is the key announcement problem. I have checked this at least 5 times, and finally I’m reaching out to see if someone has any ideas.
Each time I press an access key, such as control, alt, windows, or shift or any combination of the above, I hear the keys announced.
I don’t mind except when I’m highlighting text. Then, the announcement of the keys talks over the announcement of the text being highlighted.
I thought this functionality was controlled by going to the JAWS menu, choosing options, further choosing basics, and tabbing over to key announcement.
I go to the “off” radio button. The “off” is definitely checked or activated.
IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. I’m ready to scrap JAWS 17 entirely and hope for something better in JAWS 18.
I am looking forward to the resurrection of the merge utility, albeit under a different name.
Isn’t it funny how what is essentially a bug fix gets promoted as a feature enhancement?
