It sounds more like a Jaws issue than Google. I hate hearing the repeat myself, especially when I'm logging in and Jaws says star star star for my password.
You may have to go into settings for Jaws and save it especially for Google. Right now I can't tell you exactly how to do that because I don't do it that often and after the stroke, memory just isn't what it used to be. But you're a smart guy and I know you'll figure it out...

Hi again Dave,
Okay, if I use Google as my search engine and any other homepage other than, www.google.com/, I don't have Jaws repeating what I type when I type into the search field. I find Jaws repeating what I type very irritating and using the Google .com homepage is the only homepage that'll do this. I'm not getting any sort of predictive searches populating and being spoken, only what I'm typing into the search field of the Google homepage. I've signed into my Google account and turned off all necessary settings that I can find to stop this, saved the settings and pressed enter on the Okay button, but Jaws repeating what I type continues in the search field.
I've also turned off settings in Waterfox for saving history, predictive searches, suggested websites, search as I type but still as long as I use Google as the homepage the Jaws repeating what I type continues. Others may not find this irritating, but I do, so I'm just going to use a blank page or something like Startpage as a homepage.
Stay safe & take care. Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say: "Close Enough!"

I don't find this a bother at all in Google, I just type what I want to type, if something pops up which is what I want then good and if not then I just finish typing my search term and press enter.
In any case, you have to actually arrow down to get these search suggestions as you type, maybe they are showing up visually for a sighted person, but Jaws never speaks anything other than what I just typed.
Of course I am actually going to www.Google.com and type into the search edit combo box, I never use the address bar unless I want to enter an actual URL.
Having said that, turning auto complete or whatever you want to call it is easy for the address bar, I quite like it because when I go to websites I visit regularly I just have to type the first couple of letters and press enter when I hear the correct one. For example, if I want to go to Amazon.ca I typically get the suggestion after typing just the A

I use Waterfox as my browser. I use duckduckgo.com, as my default search engine. When I need to use google.com and enter the search edit fieled, as soon as I start typing, google.com starts performing its delimited word function, however, I do not have this problem, when I perform searches using duckduckgo.com. When I log into my google.com account, I do not seem to be able to find where to turn this annoying function off? Can you or anyone help me?
Thanks in anticipation.
