macOS Sierra - shortcut keyboard speech
Does anyone have a problem with the keyboard shortcut for speech synthesis since the update for Sierra? I can highlight text and use the mouse to right click, and select 'Speech' and then 'start talking', but the keyboard shortcut doesn't do anything.
Thanks for any help. Maybe it's a known issue, and Apple will release a fix.
It works for me. Access your users/home/Library/Preferences folder and move these two files on the desktop:
Restart and go to system/accessibility/speech preferences window and deliver it to the voice and the speed of your choice. Then try again.
If only it solves, you can delete the two files from the desktop.

Hi, after switching to macOS Sierra, the first time that I stop my MacBook Pro, it is stuck on the dark screen with the spinning ball. I had to force him to stop by the power button. The next same thing occurs. After looking in the console log, I noticed something related to bluetooth and I discovered that my wireless keyboard and trackpad are both connected (usually, I work with my MacBook Pro on a stand and I use the wireless keyboard and the trackpad). I unplugged the bluetooth and Mac went off smoothly. Did someone else experienced this problem? And does anyone have and idea about it? With El Capitan I could turn off the mac no matter what was connected...
I try to remove the two devices in preferences Bluetooth, then re - match.
I use them with a MacBook Pro, but I use Trackpad and keyboard with a Mini and not have not had any problems.
Im a user of long date Mac but displays the first time that I was pretty happy with everything that on my macbook pro for the past years... until I installed Sierra a day ago.
Since installing everything works super slow and a lot of my apps hang and crash. Things are not rosy, here is my EtreCheck report - running current version 10.12 on my MacBook Pro (mid 2010) if anyone can help would be much appreciated. Thank you

Try this first: what happens if you start in safe mode (hold down the SHIFT key during startup), the problems go away?
Try this second in normal startup mode: what happens if you create a new user account and log in as that user, the problems go away?
I'm not sure I'd worry about the plane crashes - it is listed as beta software
I'm using bootcamp on macOS Sierra (on MacBook Air 2015) and had installed Windows 10.
I don't know if I can ask this group, but I think that the problem is a problem of bootcamp.
When I turn on the computer to start Windows under bootcamp, it cannot generally go through the procedure of full boot with the following symptom:
the keyboard light would not turn
bootcamp icon does not respond (popup list will not display if I click on it) - I can't do anything to return to Mac OS
the computer can still run other programs under Windows but only I can't switch back to Mac OS when the above symptoms appears - this is why I believe that it is related to the bootcamp rather than windows.
I need to restart Windows, sometimes for a few times until everything seems normal again. Sometimes I have to stop completely, then put up the start to be normal.
Someone at - it the same experience? Is that what I can do to fix this?
Thank you for your help.
You have BC6 drivers installed on Windows? Is there an element of Bootcamp in Panel configuration or the system tray?
I upgraded to macOS Sierra of El Capitan, at the end of September and now my list of replace text does not appear in system preferences > keyboard > text. The list is available and works on my iPhone 7 (iOS 10.0.2).
I have repopulated actually manually list on my Mac yesterday and today, the list is completely empty (once again, completely intact on my iPhone).
I tried to switch and system preferences > iCloud > iCloud drive > Options > Preferences.app system on my Mac without success but also by ensuring that this edition > Substitutions > click on the replacement text 'on' in applications where the replacement text is frequently used (Safari, Messages, etc.).
For any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

Next time you go to the trouble to put them manually, export them by following the instructions in
How to export and import substitutions of text on your Mac - Apple Support , then you can at least re - import them, rather than the tedious process of re - to manually enter their new.
Because I downloaded the new macOS sierra, my midi keyboard no longer works. The midi controller is no longer recognized by Logic Pro X.
Thanks in advance!
But it is recognized by the computer, Garageband sees the keyboard?
Go to utilities/Audio-MIDI settings...
With the keyboard plugged in, look on the MIDI tab, everything is listed.
After update for Sierra have you disconnected the keyboard, stop and restart the computer, allow to settle and then reconnect the keyboard.
Before upgrading to iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, iMessages sent from my iPhone seems also in the application iMessages on my MacBook Pro and my iPad 2 Air - and the same for all three devices.
It worked very well in my opinion. When I'm at my laptop, it is very convenient type of responses on the keyboard.
However, after the upgrades, this connection has stopped. Each unit is not to see the iMessages of others, although all three devices are signed on the same iCloud account.
What is a reduction in function? Or am I missing something? I tried settings and preferences.

Sign of iMessages (the Apple ID used) on all devices
Drag the item in Messages app from green to white (close the application) on the iPhone.
Quit the application on other devices.
On the iPhone, open the application again.
Wait for the number to check.
While what happens opened the app on the Mac and the sign of return on account of iMessage.
Once the iPhone number checked send an iMessages specifically to your Apple ID (enter it manually).
If it works, add the Apple ID in Send and Receive on the iPhone version.
Accept the UPS op on the Mac.
(repeat for other signature devices in)
Set the item "send as SMS.
Check the iPhone joins the same LAN in the Mac WiFi settings is on
Reset the transmission of text on the iPhone which will cause the Code number must appear on the Mac to put on the iPhone.
Repeat for other devices.
Basically, try a reset.

I installed Sierra on my MacBook Pro a few days ago, and several times it froze. First the computer stops responding to my external mouse. About 30 seconds later it stops responding to the keyboard and trackpad. I have to force a reboot. Why is this?
Perhaps relevant: according to activity monitor, kernel_task frequently uses now several hundred (and sometimes more than 2,000) percentage of my CPU. Who would have thought that was possible?
Back up your Mac if you have not already done so. Read https://www.apple.com/support/backup/to learn how to do this please. To learn how to use Time Machine read to use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac.
Then, shut down your Mac and restart in 'Safe Mode '. To learn how to do it please read: try safe mode if your Mac does not start-up. Compare works your Mac in Mode for how safe it was.
Then restart normally. If the same problem comes back, please read the section If a problem does not occur in safe mode for actions recommended to Apple.
Finally, you can temporarily create a new user account and log into this account to determine if the problem also exists when connected to this account. To learn how to read How to test a question to another user on your Mac account. When you are finished troubleshooting, you can remove the temporary user account by following these instructions: macOS Sierra: remove a user or a group. Before you delete, confirm that you have not need of all the files that you have possibly set in this account.
Let me know what you decide.

Shift - command - up: select the text between the insertion point and the beginning of the document.
No longer work under macOS Sierra (both worked in Yosemite). :-(
Someone has the same problem?
In what program? Shortcuts work for me in TextEdit.
I've seen excerpts of suggest some system settings that Siri can control, for example "switch off bluetooth", what is optimal, but "turn off the bluetooth mouse" would be more useful batteries changing as the former makes my imac (with mouse and wireless keyboard) totally unusable and unrecoverable without turning off or dig this long-lost old Dell USB keyboard TAPI at the bottom of the Cabinet.
FWIW if you try siri "switch off the bluetooth mouse" just does not take into account the part of the mouse and disables it all!
Then, I browsed the net to get a list of orders for the system or settings that siri understands and found the same things, 4 or 5, re-stuck again and again.
I tried to ask Siri what settings it could change and says "Bluetooth is already lit" doh?
Beats me why and maybe there isn't and I found it simply not, apple have not documented it better - all I could find was this macOS Sierra: ask Siri
So has anyone seen a better resource for whats possible?
Go to this website: https://hey-siri.io
Then got to settings > macOS Sierra to see the commands of the Sierra
I HAVE TO WRITE IN CAPITAL LETTERS BECAUSE OF A PROBLEM IN MAC OS SIERRA.
SINCE THE INSTALLATION OF MACOS SIERRA YESTERDAY, I HAD STRANGE PROBLEMS WITH THE MY BLUETOOTH KEYBOARD SHIFT KEY.
WHEN YOU USE MY MAC YESTERDAY I HAD A FREEZE ON ALL OF THE SYSTEM WHEN YOU TURN ON CAPS LOCK THIS INCLUDES ENTRANCE TO VIDEO PLAYBACK, KEYBOARD AND MOUSE (HE'D CATCH UP AFTER A FEW SECONDS, BUT THE LETTERS YOU ENTERED NOT APPEAR OUT IN THE RIGHT ORDER, SUGGESTING IS NOT ONLY A DISPLAY PROBLEM, BUT A REAL FREEZE) THEN THERE ARE MORE SMALL FREEZES AND BLIPS AS LONG AS CAPSLOCK SHIFT WAS.
TODAY, HOWEVER, I AM HAVING THE OPPOSITE TO HAPPEN. FROST OCCUR WHILE CAPS LOCK IS OFF, WHICH IS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE EMBARRASSING AS ALL LOOKS LIKE I'M YELLING!
THERE SEEMS TO BE HAVING THE CPU SPIKES IN ACTIVITY MONITOR, AND I TRIED TO REPLACE THE BATTERIES.
Since I installed macOS Sierra, the right command key is somehow mapped the option key (and the option key is still down option). There is a new setting I need to change? I'm not find it.
Reset the default settings
> sys prefs > keyboard > keyboard > restore ddefaults
As always, I'm afraid that my work flow is interrupted by an upgrade of the OS.
Has anyone taken the plunge and installed macOS Sierra?
I noticed that there were some problems with the beta versions of Mac OS and Photoshop and Indesign (see discussion below)
Seems Siri and Photoshop zoom + have the same shortcut.
