Voice Basics

Voice Basics


The Basics:

1. Click the Microphone button in the bottom left corner.


When the microphone icon turns green and says "Mic is on" your voice will be transmitted to others.



You can also press and hold the "1" key on your keyboard while the mic is off to use Push-To-Talk. This will allow the mic to be on only when you press and hold the "1" key.

Your voice is transmitting when the chat bubble appears over your avatar's head.
