Re: NVDA constantly repeating icons on the desktop

It makes more sense to just turn off speech in your screen-reader.  Both JAWS and NVDA have commands to turn off speech.  I would imagine other full feature screen-readers do as well.  If not, simply go to the start menu by pressing the Windows key once, then pressing escape.  You will be on the start button.  We don't know what is causing the problem.  Unselecting the item may or may not stop the behavior, but then you have the inconvenience of having to remember to select it again if you want to use it when you return to the computer.  It's better to just turn off speech or not be on the desktop altogether since unselecting and then reselecting something is so foreign to what is generally done.

Hi Sarah:

If you are leaving your system on for a long time during which you are
not using it, you can try going to your desktop and pressing
control-spacebar.  This will unselect everything on the desktop.
