    I wasn't able to use the shift+i and shift+o turns out there was a process running in the background like a screen recording suite. I killed it through my task manager and guess what it started working again. Having said that, if you have already tried to restart your system and it still hasn't worked then it probably not the same issue. I hope you found a resolution for your problem.

    Just got a new iMac and having the same issue with capital T. Doesn't work when I press the shift + t. And the iMac is beeping like if something is pressed constantly. It seems that for me, pressing the F5 key several times or rebooting solves the problem. Weird.

    I had same problem and I resolve in this way: go to System preferences / click Speech / checkup: Upon Recognition - Speak command acknowledgment. I sure it help You.

    Have you double-checked system prefs/speech that this letter has not been set as the trigger for TexttoSpeech or SpeechRecognition?

    Thanks for the answer. My keyboard was just faulty, I've got a replacement and no problem since.
