MacFilter: Know that annoying "Use click key sounds" option that makes clickety-clack sounds as you type, and that most people turn off immediately? How do I turn mine back on?

I've clicked the checkbox for it under Universal Access | Keyboard and set the acceptance delay to short. I doublechecked the volume on my menu bar, and it's cranked high as it'll go. Am i missing something? I'm on a 2004 iBook g4. With a shiny new motherboard.

In that same preference pane, you need to make sure that Slow Keys is turned on. Then, in the Sound preference pane, under Sound Effects, make sure 'Play user interface sound effects' is ticked.

In System Preferences, click Sound and turn on "Play user interface sound effects." Then switch to the Universal Access pane.

In the Keyboard tab, turn on Slow Keys, and move its Acceptance delay slider all the way to the right (Short). Confirm that "Use key click sounds" is turned on. Click Show All to activate the changes.

(make sure you're clicking show all to activate it)
