i'm running Arch Linux on my Mac mini in vmware fusion. While I can stop 
speech so that I get "you turned me off" I didnt think I could actually 
kill speakup with a bluetooth keyboard that doesn't have a dedicated sysrq 
key as far as I know. However I have a new iogear 
multi-link mini bluetooth keyboard and I just accidentally started to sit 
on it and pressed some keys apparently and I heard "You killed 
speakup" which  sure enough I had done. But I can't figure out 
what key combination did it and I'd like to know. Any ideas?


May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to You,
Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.
(Psalm 19:14, HCSB)
