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,

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?

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.

I found that if you turn off the slow keys in acceptability helps out a lot. I some use an old-school typewriter sound to help me make sure I'm typing the right keys at night because I'm using the 2010 MacBook white and it doesn't have the led keys
