    Onscreen Keyboard sounds?


    After I upgraded to 8.1, I am not getting any sounds when hitting the individual keys on the onscreen keyboard.
    I have looked all through GodMode regarding 'Sounds' but can't find anything to enlighten me. It is turned on in "PC settings". Thanks for any help.

    I have the "Ease of Access Center" but I don't have that keyboard with "Options" on it! Thanks anyway. Where are you writing from David at this time of the morning in the Uk?

    From my home in Virginia, USA.

    I'll check out the keyboard again.

    I've found it now David. I didn't have it turned on in PC Settings after I upgraded to 8.1. It already was ticked off in "Options". The keyboard that you've referring to does have a very low click sound, but that's not the keyboard I normally use, anyway they used to work on the keyboard that I use.
