Sound Schemes and Advanced Properties

Clicking on Change the sound scheme opens up the same properties box at the Sounds tab. This is a set of sounds applied to events and programs in Windows. Windows has a default scheme or you can create one of your own. You can change the sounds that occur during different events in the Program events section of the properties box. The Sounds tab can be seen in Figure 241.


Figure 241: Sounds and Audio Devices Properties - Sounds Tab

 


Clicking on Change the speaker settings opens up the same properties box and tab seen in next figure. As previously described, the Speaker settings controls are located at the bottom of this box.

Under “or pick a Control Panel icon”, clicking on Sounds and Audio Devices opens the same box. The features previously mentioned are configured in the Volume and Sounds tabs. Additionally, in the Audio tab, you can configure Sound playback settings, Sound recording settings, and MIDI music playback settings. Under the Voice tab, you can configure voice recording and playback and under the Hardware tab, you can configure the various recording and playback devices associated with your Windows XP computer. You can select a particular device and click on the Troubleshoot or Properties button to either open the Help and Support page or to view the properties page for the selected device.

Clicking on Speech opens the Speech Properties box and the Text to Speech tab. This allows you to control the properties, speed and other text-to-speech translation options.

In the upper left hand area of the page under “See Also”, clicking on Accessibility Sound Options opens the Accessibility Options box at the Sound tab. This allows the use of Sound Sentry and ShowSounds. These options are helpful to configure if the user is hearing impaired and requires a visual cue when the system normally makes a sound.

Clicking on Advanced Volume Controls opens the same box as opening the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties box and clicking on the Advanced button under Device volume. Clicking either Sound or DVD under Troubleshooters opens the Help and Support page for these devices.
