Hello I am having a frustrating issue with my Macbook Pro 15 for some reason the Command-R for reloading webpages is not working when ever I press it, it will read back anything that is selected. Also I have made sure voiceover is off but that still doesn't fix the issue. In Safari if you press it to reload a page if the site is Reader cabable it opens reader and starts reading it to me! Anyone know how to solve this?:confused:

Yeah I'm sure I go up and click up on the view tab and Reload Page says Command-R but it doesn't work to reload the page and does what I describe on my previous post. Thank you for your reply though :)

It's the right command....try re-setting your PRAm and empty your Safari cache.


I was going to post the link to PRAm re-set, but the site is down.

Shut down your Mac

Restart whilst holding down CMD +OPTION+P+R

Let the Mac boot twice and release the keys on the second chime.

PRAM reset won't do anything, that's not among the things that PRAM controls.

OP, take a look in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts. Look through the list there and see if you can find anything showing that shortcut (likely something like "Speak Selected Text"). I don't see anything quite matching that on my computer, but I suspect that will reveal the problem. If you find it, simply double-click on the keyboard shortcut shown, and hit the delete key to remove the shortcut.

I just check that and nothing in it look like it could be causing my issue and there are no keyboard shortcut commands that are the same as that.
