When my caret is inside text and I press CTRL+F12, Windows reads that text.

How can I disable this functionality?

What do you expect/want to happen when you press Ctrl+F12? – Nifle May 7 '12 at 19:27
Normally nothing. I use another program. It uses Ctrl+F12 to make some action. So these shorcuts conflict. I need to remove this conflict. – trante May 7 '12 at 19:28
What does "windows reads that text" mean? – user3463 May 7 '12 at 19:54
I meaned "Text-to-Speech". – trante May 7 '12 at 20:00

Accidentially i found the answer. Lingoes software was triggering Ctrl+F12 and played Text-to-Speech.
