  • It is a good idea to use a key, you do not normally use a lot. Do not use CTRL or SHIFT for example.

Step 4: Notification MUTE Guide (Optional)

If you want to mute the chat notifications from Mumble do this:

  • Go to Configure > Settings > Check on Advanced > Go to Messages > Turn off Soundfile for the notifications you wish to mute.
  • You may wish to turn off sound for Text Message, if the chat distracts you while talking/hearing others talk.


Step 5: Turn on/off Text-to-Speech (Optional)

To turn on or off Text-to-Speech simply click Configure and click Text-to-Speech in the drop-down menu.


And there you go. You are setup for Mumble Hangouts.
