Hey guys, I'm having some trouble with gamevox. As some of you know I'm hearing impaired, ménière makes my hearing fluctuate tending to the hearing loss side of things.

The problem is people sometimes message me with private messages on gamevox for different reasons, I have tried turning on the audio notifications, but I also notice that when someone is speaking the Bleep! doesn't play, also it's quite hard to listen to one Bleep! sound while playing, being partially deaf and chatting at the same time.

I'm considering nuking all my friendlist and block all messages, but before doing that I wanted to seek help on how we can fix this problem, so you people can talk to me and I can respond in time (and not when I close the game, when it's usually pretty much late).

Thanks in advance!

Kitty, have you adjusted the text-to-speech volume?

To do that, you go to the setting (or self) and then to notifications.  There is a slider bar at the bottom.

Adjusting this may let you hear better when people message you.

Do you use one monitor or two?  I only use one monitor and I miss messages all of the time, because I can't tell the difference between the different bleeps and bloops.  A second monitor would help me a lot with at least seeing the popups while playing games.  But yea, I miss everyone's messages too.

Gamevox should really consider adding in a unique chime for messages, because the current alerts all sound too similar.  That would be a help, or maybe some sort of overlay alert.

I didn't know I could raise the volume of the text-to-speech, maybe I should use that.

No, I use a single monitor on a small normal non-computery desk. It's in my plans to get a bigger computer proper desk and maybe another monitor.

Thanks for the answers.

Glad to offer the idea (I found I was missing them, and found that option... it helps.)
