Go to jaws settings with insert 6.
Switch to default with control shift D.
Type voice in to the search field and arrow down to voice assistant.
Press enter. Open the tree view with right arrow key, then arrow down to Listen for wake word Sharkey and make sure it isn't checked. Tab to ok and press
space bar or enter to trigger the ok button and you should be fine.

Subject: voice assistant question

Hi all,
On the topic of the Jaws voice assistant, can anyone tell me how to get rid of
it or turn it off? I tried going into utilities and I thought I'd turned it off,
but it would seem not, as it still goes off even though I've never said any wake
word to it ever. It's annoying and I'd like to have it turned off permanently if
at all possible. I'm running the latest build of Jaws 2021 and Windows 10 2004.
