Re: VoiceOver getting 'stuck'

I have seen several other cases of this especially when VoiceOver is set to "Group" mode in the web panel of VoiceOver Utility. It seems to be the sound of VO indicating that it has changed interaction levels, but goes on for several seconds. Recently, it even occurs with "Reader" mode, and in the Apple News Application. I have not seen anybody complain about this issue in the Macintosh blindness malinger lists I am on though.
I wonder if AppleVis lists this as one of its current bugs.
BTW, is it just a single character SuperScript, or a group of words where you are seeing this?
