Feedback, maybe.  Is her mic really close to her speakers?  (Or maybe she has a two-year-old.  My youngest granddaughter can screech loud enough to peel paint.)

Edit:  My granddaughter says that she is THREE. Who am I to argue?

Rolig is likely right about it being a feedback problem. This issue can go beyond the viewer and be a Windows or local computer settings issue. So, Google for computer microphone feedback.

If you want to get the newest version of the Linden viewer with voice  updates see: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alternate_Viewers

Second Life Voice Viewer version 5.1.8.518310 This is an RC version so it should be OK for everyday use.

When using voice, there are really only two good options:

  1. Use a laptop.  Laptops have built in microphones and speakers, and very good noise cancellation to prevent feedback.
  2. Use a gaming headset, with a boom microphone and (preferably) closed cup style headphones.

Using a desktop microphone and speakers is just asking for a feedback situation.
