Push to talk is not working. (not the standard enable assit. prob)
 
I'm aware there is another topic very similar to this one almost right below me.

However, after linking to the assistive devices known issues #4 in the sticky the person never responded.

Since I've been using vent successfully for almost 2 years until very recently and I'm very familiar with settting up vent I thought this warranted a new thread.

So:

-) Push to talk enabled in vent [check]
-) Assistive devices enabled in preferences [check]


-) Oddities are:

Push to talk works fine except when Ventrilo is not the focus application.
I have removed ventrilo and any reference to ventrilo in preferences or Application Support.

I must be missing something obvious, but I have no idea what. I literally log in one day and it was all borked. Maybe the 10.4.10 patch?

hmm, not sure.
it is not 10.4.10, as we are running that release also and have no problem.

could you please post screenshots of the following windows..
ventrilo
ventrilo > setup > voice tab

Ya, i have the same problem with PTT. i have F13 set up as my PTT and that works fine when i have Vetrilo as my window that is selected. however when im using a different application that PTT button doesnt allow me to speak using Ventrilo. How could i get a button to work when im in my game World of Warcraft? Thank you for your responce

Post screenshots of your Ventrilo setup tab and your System->Universal Access preference pane.

Update: It's not related to ventrilo or osx patches. I was able to get expected functionality back by creating a fresh user account.

So it's definately a preference *somewhere*. Also, I'm fairly sure it's not a ventrilo preference since I wiped all traces of ventrilo from my drive and reinstalled to ensure default prefs were set.

I also don't think it's an assistive device setting since System Prefs persist for every user account.

I have been having the exact same issue, and it looks like the exact same software/setup. What did you do to get this corrected?

krunk 07-23-2007 10:44 PM

I created an entirely new account and it worked. But about a week into use it's broken the same way. I kept this account very clean, no extra apps started so no odd user prefs made.

I'm kind of stumped at this point.

I have the same problem
