Gag Order - Bagged Beans

Here it is days and a few updates later since Voice hit the main grid from the First Look viewer and I'm still voice-less. Thank you to all the people that have tried to help me, I really do appreciate it. According to the Jira (I know, it sucks) after doing a "voice" search, there are 343 matching issues. With a world of an alledged 8,693,893 total residents, I'm a minority. Sadly I fear that LL is more concerned over getting the new WindLight viewer incorporated into the Main Grid and pushing forward leaving the rest of us that haven't even progressed thus far in the virtual dust.

I guess most of all I find this completely ironic that of all the people I've met, heard bitch and whine about voice... I'm one who doesn't get it. I'm like the biggest supporter & Pro-Voice activist I know. I'm sure theres others but I've been preaching this shit for months. If you know me in SL, or even been within chat range of me for 5 minutes, I am sure you've heard one if not many of my 3 years worth of personally recorded gestures. Let's be honest here, I'm a talker. Oh yes, I'm an expressive, shit-talking, opinionated, overly-animated verbal spewer. Love me or hate me... I SHALL HAVE A VOICE! It's just a matter of when.

Jelly, I am micless... (not really/really micless but I am some how).
Well, I have tried voice in SL and my voice sounded like a robot deep down inside a well. So weird...

Anyway, can you use any other voIP clients? Do you have your sound card and codecs updated?
I am certain you have covered all of this...

Ugh. Your voice problem is quite intractable. I'm sure after chatting with you last night that it has nothing to do with your firewall. Since it works in other programs, it's not likely to be a hardware conflict. I think it's some software problem that has to do with the SL viewer itself and your comp. Have you uninstalled and reinstalled SL? Otherwise, with all your attempts to fix this coming up empty, you may just have to cross your fingers and wait for the next update. Yikes.

That really sucks! I hope you will get voice soon.

This voice viewer (funny to call it "voice viewer") is only the optional one, in other words the "testing" one, and soon there will be a mandatory one. So they should be doing all they can NOW to fix these problems. I wonder why does it work for some and for others it doesn't? Could it be the sound card? Or another software? Don't they offer any explanation, any advice? They really should try to get it fixed before the mandatory update gets ready.

I didn't install it yet, but I'm getting so curious I'll have to try. With every new update, I always feel afraid my computer won't be able to run it. My graphics card already crashes in some situations.

Ana: I can use voice in THERE, DJ, and Skype. Today I'm looking to see if there are updates needed for my soundcard.

Alex: I did uninstall & reinstall last night after Clockwork. It was a clean uninstall (I search EVERYTHING "Secondlife" in my puter, to include hidden crap & deleted it)and got a genuine reinstall. Still no dice. :/
