moderated buttons announcing to activate press enter in 2020 and later? #advisory

I primarily use spacebar regardless of what JAWS might say, and enter only if the spacebar doesn't work.

I’ve been using JAWS for several years (we won’t say how many), and I’ve
always used enter for buttons. I do recall JAWS at some point did say
space, but old habits die hard, and I still use enter for buttons.

I was wondering why in the JAWS 2020 and 2021 version the screen reader
is announcing "to activate press enter" on buttons. It was spacebar for
years and just curious for the change?
