Re: In JAWS 2019 how do I turn back on both the "tab" and "alt+tab" key sounds?

The Tabkey no longer echoed in Jaws 2019 release. 
This is what I heard from Eric Damery.
I find that pretty anoying.

I like hearing the sounds “tab” and “alt+tab” when I press these keys so that I get that confirmation.  Apparently, in JAWS 2019 this functionality is defaulted to “off.”  How can I turn this back on?
