Our advice is to always use a headset. When this is connected the speakers of the computer will be turned off and the chat can only be heard on the headset.

After loggin in it is possible to talk to other avatars through voice. At the right bottom of the screen you can click on the TALK button to turn your microhpone on and off.
It is also possible to use the middle mouse button for switching microphone on and off.Groense golven boven het hoofd van een avatar
