I sort of had already narrowed it down but am unsure of how to debug

Removing %^{Todo}  from the template and everything works.

Of course the thing that doesn't work is that org no longer prompts me
for the title of the task to create which makes me sad :).

Any suggestions on how to dig into this further?

Here is the output when debug-on-error is set to t:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Capture abort: (error Key sequence C-c ! 
starts with non-prefix key C-c)")
  signal(error ("Capture abort: (error Key sequence C-c ! starts with 
non-prefix key C-c)"))
  error("Capture abort: %s" (error "Key sequence C-c ! starts with non-prefix 
key C-c"))
  #<subr funcall-interactively>(org-capture nil)
  apply(#<subr funcall-interactively> org-capture nil)
  ad-Advice-funcall-interactively(#<subr funcall-interactively> org-capture nil)
  apply(ad-Advice-funcall-interactively #<subr funcall-interactively> 
(org-capture nil))
  funcall-interactively(org-capture nil)
  #<subr call-interactively>(org-capture nil nil)
  ad-Advice-call-interactively(#<subr call-interactively> org-capture nil nil)
  apply(ad-Advice-call-interactively #<subr call-interactively> (org-capture 
nil nil))
  call-interactively(org-capture nil nil)

I have some other bits of org config in my main config file but not sure
that they would cause breakage like this.

The other thing is that I use emacspeak which is probably the advice
calls shown in the debug above.  Hard for me to test without it though
as then I can't use emacs.

Could try ripping out almost all of the org config and see if that

I could also try an earlier version of emacspeak in case the error is
being caused by the advice in some strange way.

Kind regards
