    I don't know how this happened but everytime I press a key, I hear a sound. I'm sure something must have messed up in the settings somewhere but I don't know what.

    Appreciate any help,

    Try system preferences / Universal Access / Keyboard

    I unchecked "Use Click Key Sounds" but the sound is still here.

    Any ideas?

    Try trashing the com.apple.universalaccess.plist and com.apple.VoiceOver.pronunciations.plist files in your [username]/Library/Preferences folder. And then restart your computer.

    Anyway you could record and then upload the sound? It could be a third-party program that's doing it, but without hearing it, it's hard to tell.

    If I go to System Preferences >> Sound >> Sound Effects, whatever sound I choose from there, that's the sound played when I press any key.

    I have tried unchecking all the boxes there to see if that makes a difference, but it remains the same.


    Any ideas?

    System Preferences > Universal Access

    Turn VoiceOver off.

    Does that fix it for you?

    I'm also having this issue, it is very annoying. I can only hear it when I try to write/click where I'm not supposed to...is this a feature? can it be turned off?

    Tried the Universal Access options but still get the beep...

    Had the same problem and found that text to speech had assigned the key I was having problem with to "speak selected text when the key is pressed".

    Thanks for the hint.

    Also for other users, check if the same issue replicates within different profile.
