Lost voice during conversation
 
Using a Imac 27" when I was using ventrilo I was talking and all of a sudden the voice push to talk quite working, I figure it must of been a keystroke combo of some kind to turn it off, I checked vent and all settings are good, I deleted vent and the vent file in library/pref, and when I loaded it it still had my same setting as before, I then logged out and logged into guest and reloaded vent as an initial install and it still would not work the same way.
Can anyone tell me what is wrong?

What happens if you change your PTT key to Command?

Also, Check #8 in the troubleshooting guide

http://forum.ventrilo.com/showthread.php?t=39590


finally if the above does not solve the issue:


If that doesn't work, do the following
  1. Restart your Mac
  2. Open Vent
  3. Go to setup by clicking the Setup button
  4. Make sure the first tab (Voice) is selected.
  5. Check the following checkboxes
    - Enable outgoing voice communication
    - Use Push-To-Talk Hotkey (PTT Mode) (if this is not checked it may ask you to configure universal access)
    - Click in the HotKey field and press the Command key on your keyboard (the field will then say command)
  6. Click OK
  7. Click the setup button again
  8. Click the Test button
  9. Press and release the Command key several times - noting any changes in the white tall box to the right of the Test button.

Click Test to end the test and then Click OK.

Give us the results of what appeared, if anything, in the list in the white box.

I am also having the same issues. At first it seemed to be that I was having a sticky key problem. My push to talk button would just stick and people would tell me my mic was open although the keyboard seemed to be ok. The "mike open" issue has been happening for several weeks.

Then during the middle of a conversation today my ptt starting not to work at all, even when i set the ptt button to another key on my keyboard. I restarted the mac and even performed the test above but nothing happens in the window. This is freaking me out a little. Because I cant chat with people right now.

I tried this also on a separate keyboard, keyboard works fine. Vent still won't work with ptt.

By the way the push-to-talk beep sound disappeared a while ago. I was getting used to this fact, I wasn't able to find a setting to turn it back on other than "play key clicks." Maybe these two issues are related?

@macventer

does your icon turn green when keying up?

on vent main window at bottom, is 'mute mic' box checked?

are there any error messages in the vent log file? ctrl-clik in window > view > log file > scroll to bottom > check date on last few entries yyyymmdd

Hello @Prog-rocker,

You know what?, after troubleshooting this issue last night for over an hour I realized that the "mute mic" button was checked. I didnt notice that before so I'm not sure what happened. Made me feel really stupid. I'm sorry I posted about this issue. I still have the sticky key problem but the mic issue may have just an accidental check of the mute/mic button. Thanks for your help.

glad to see you found the mute mic box. that one got me a few times after intentionally setting it for testing. :D

as for the open mic problem:

goto 'System Preferences' and check the following settings for anything that might have an affect on keys:

unversal access > keyboard and mouse tabs
expose and spaces

keyboard
mouse
trackpad

Note that 'Universal Access' applies to 10.7 back

With 10.8 (Mountain Lion) it's Accessability
