    Using voice chat

    This article describes Second Life's voice features and how to use them. Prerequisites and setup Configuring device settings Technical requirements Enabling and disabling voice Testing voice Overview of voice in Second Life Voice-enabled land Voice dots Using toggle-to-speak mode The Conversations window Blocking people Speech gestures Nearby voice chat Volume and camera position Listening distance Controlling speakers' volume Individual voice chat Ad hoc conference call Group voice chat Voice settings for landowners How to enable or disable voice Maturity ratings and voice Troubleshooting Reducing background noise Voice morphing How to preview a voice morph How to get voice morphs How to use a voice morph Prerequisites and setup To use voice chat you need a: Computer that fulfills the System Requirements. Broadband (DSL or cable) connection to the Internet. Headset (strongly recommended), or a microphone and speakers for your computer. Using earphones avoids potential issues with feedback or disruptive echoes. Configuring device settings Your device settings determine the microphone and speakers that Second Life uses. To configure your device settings: Choose Me > Preferences. Click the Sound & Media tab. Click the Input/Output devices button. Click the Input dropdown to select a device for your microphone Click the Output dropdown to select a device for your speakers. In some cases, you may need to exit and restart the Second Life Viewer. If you prefer, you can change the default input and output devices on your operating system. See your operating system documentation for more information. Technical requirements Voice requires at least 32kbps upload and 64kbps download bandwidth, regardless of the number of speakers. UDP ports 5060 or 5062 must be open. For information on using voice behind a firewall, see Configuring your firewall. Enabling and disabling voice By default, voice is enabled in the Second Life Viewer. To turn it off: Choose Me > Preferences. Click the Sound & Media tab. Deselect Enabled next to Voice Chat. Voice is disabled immediately, and all of the voice settings will be grayed out. This means you can't hear anyone talking nor be heard yourself. Testing voice Teleport to Voice Echo Canyon and start talking. Whatever you say there will be repeated back to you so you can test the quality of your voice. Overview of voice in Second Life There are the following types of voice chat in Second Life: Nearby voice chat among people in close proximity inworld. See Nearby voice chat. Individual voice chat (also called a voice call), a private conversation between two people. See Individual voice chat. Group voice chat among members of a Second Life group. See Group voice chat. See Group voice chat. Important: You can only participate in one type of voice chat at a time. For example: If you're talking to people around you in spatial chat and then start an individual chat, you won't be able to hear those around you anymore in spatial chat, nor will they hear you. Voice-enabled land To use voice, the land you are on must be voice-enabled. If the land you are on does not have voice enabled, the Speak button is dimmed and you can't click it. To check whether the land you are on is voice enabled, choose World > Place Profile. This window shows On next to Voice if the parcel has voice enabled. Voice dots Voice-enabled avatars have white "voice dots" floating above their heads (including your own). Green or red waves radiating from the voice dot indicate someone is speaking. This is the voice intensity indicator, and also indicates their volume: green indicates the volume is within normal range; red indicates the volume is too loud, potentially causing distortion or clipping. Important: If the voice intensity indicator turns red, then either: You're speaking too loudly. The microphone is too close to your mouth. Your microphone's volume control is turned up too far. Adjust these things until the voice indicator stays green when you speak and seldom flickers to red. Using toggle-to-speak mode In toggle-to-speak mode, you turn and off your voice chat microphone by pressing a certain key. To configure toggle-to-speak: Select Me > Preferences > Sound & Media. Select Toggle speak on/off when I press. Click Set Key. A popup prompts you to Press a key to set your Speak button. Press the desired key and click Set Key. Click OK to save your changes. Now pressing that key toggles the microphone on or off. The Conversations window Click the Chat button to display the Conversations window that displays the people in your current chat, either spatial, group or individual chat. People who are talking are shown at the top of the list. To control the speaker's volume: Mouse over their name in the Conversations window Click . Use the slider to set their volume. Blocking people Block someone to silence their voice chat, instant messages (IMs) and text chat: Right-click their avatar choose Block. Alternatively, right-click the Resident's name in the the Conversations window to block them. This should always be your first step if someone inworld is irritating, attacking, or griefing you. For more information, see Blocking. Speech gestures Second Life speech gestures are animations that automatically play as you are speaking in voice chat. The speech gestures are randomly selected from nine different animations in your Library's Gestures folder, based on the intensity of your voice. There are sets of gestures for low, medium, and high-intensity speech volumes. To enable speech gestures, drag the folder labeled "Speech Gestures" from your Library on to your avatar. To disable them, right-click the Speech Gestures folder and select Take Off Items. For more information on gestures, see Gestures and animations. Nearby voice chat Nearby voice chat is when you are talking to someone you can see inworld. It is sometimes referred to as spatial voice chat. If you're on voice-enabled land, simply walk up to another voice-enabled avatar and click on the Speak button at the bottom of the Viewer window to talk to them. When others speak, you see their intensity indicators and hear their voices as they hear yours. As you walk around someone speaking, you'll hear their voice move around in 3D. For example, if you turn toward someone and move closer, for example, his or her voice grows louder. Volume and camera position By default in nearby voice chat, a speaker's volume depends on how far the avatar is from your camera's position. For example, if you walk up to someone who is speaking, their voice becomes louder. As you move away, the voice becomes softer, until you can't hear it at all. Use the camera controls (Alt-mouse zooming, for example) to create a momentary "audio focus" on a given speaker. This is helpful to pick a voice out of a crowd of talking avatars without moving. You can set whether to listen from your avatar's position or your camera's position as follows: Choose Me > Preferences > Sound & Media Click Listen from: Camera position to listen from the camera position. Click Listen from: Avatar position to listen from your avatar's position. Click OK. Listening distance The listening distance for nearby voice chat depends on a preference setting. You can hear voice chat up to 60 meters from your listening position. Therefore, if you selected : Listen from: Avatar position, you can hear voice chat up to 60 meters away. Listen from: Camera position, you can hear voice chat from up to 110 meters away (because your camera can be up to 50 meters from your avatar, plus 60 meters from your camera). Group voice chat and indivdual voice calls have no distance limitations. Controlling speakers' volume To adjust the volume of people in nearby chat: Mouse over their avatar Click . Adjust the slider at the bottom of the window or click on the speaker icon to turn off someone's speaking volume altogether. Alternatively, you can control volume using the VOICE SETTINGS window as explained below. Individual voice chat You can talk to another person directly, no matter where you are inworld. This is sometimes referred to as a private call or private voice chat. If you're using IM to talk to someone and they have voice enabled, you can click Call to initiate a individucal voice chat session. To start a individual voice chat session with a friend: Click at the bottom of the Second Life window. The PEOPLE window opens. In the NEARBY or FRIENDS tab, mouse over the person to whom you wish to talk. Double-click on their name. In the window that opens, click Call A pop-up advises you that you'll be leaving nearby voice chat; meanwhile the person you are calling sees a pop-up asking if they want to accept your call. If they do so, your private conversation starts. If not, then you are returned to nearby voice chat. Ad hoc conference call An ad hoc conference call is a private conversation among a set of people you choose. They don't have to be your friends or in a group. To start an ad hoc call: Click at the bottom of the Second Life window. The PEOPLE window opens. In the NEARBY or FRIENDS tab, Ctrl-click on the people to whom you wish to talk. Right click on the selected people and choose Voice call. An ad hoc group conference starts among the people you chose. Group voice chat To start a voice chat session with a group: Click at the bottom of the Second Life window. The PEOPLE window opens. Click the GROUPS tab. Double-click the name of a group. A new window opens. Click Call. In general, when you're talking to a group, the window works exactly like it does for nearby chat. It: Displays a list of everyone in the group who's talking or typing Tracks the volume of individual speakers Displays the group text chat history Offers individual volume and mute controls Voice settings for landowners Voice is available by default across all of Second Life, but you must be on land that has voice enabled and with other Residents who have voice enabled. As a landowner, you can enable or disable voice for a single parcel and for an entire estate. To use voice, it must be enabled for both the estate and the parcel you are in. How to enable or disable voice To enable or disable voice for a parcel you own: Stand on the parcel. Right-click the ground and select About Land or choose World > About land. Click the SOUND tab. Select (or deselect) Enable Voice. To restrict voice to the parcel, select Restrict voice to this parcel; those outside the parcel won't be able to hear those in the parcel talking. To enable or disable voice for a whole estate you own or control: Go to a region within the estate. Choose World > Region/Estate. Click the Estate tab. Select (or deselect) Allow Voice Chat. Maturity ratings and voice If you are in an Adult region, you can speak in nearby voice chat only with other Residents who are also in Adult regions. See Maturity ratings for more information. Troubleshooting If you are having voice issues, check the following: Make sure you've downloaded and are using a Second Life Viewer that has voice chat. Voice is part of the standard Second Life Viewer, but some unsupported alternate viewers exclude it. Make sure Skype isn't running. Even if you're not engaged in a Skype call, having Skype open can affect your audio settings. Check your Viewer preferences: Choose Me > Preferences. Click the Sound & Media tab. Make sure the Enabled checkbox next to Voice Chat is selected. Check that the Voice Chat slider is at a good level (it's halfway by default) and not muted. Ensure the estate you are on is voice-enabled: Click World > Region / Estate. Click the Estate tab. Check that Allow Voice Chat is selected. Ensure the parcel you're on is also voice-enabled: Click World > About Land > Place Profile. Make sure Voice is On. If your volume works but some people can't hear you, your microphone: May be too far away. May not be working properly. Settings may be incorrect or have changed for some reason. If you've followed all these steps and voice still doesn't work, make sure your headset and/or microphone are set up properly as detailed above. Also check whether your headset or mic has a mute switch and it is off. The same goes for mute settings on your computer. Reducing background noise To reduce background noise when using voice chat: Use the toggle-to-speak feature. By only "transmitting" when you have something to say, you won't inadvertently broadcast any ambient noise or side-conversations happening around you. Make sure the room you're in is as quiet as reasonably possible: close doors to noisy rooms, turn down loud music and ask your friends and colleagues to quiet down. No amount of noise-cancellation will filter out a wild party! Get a computer headset with a noise-canceling microphone. Using a headset ensures that you won't transmit the sounds made by your computer's speakers, and a noise-canceling microphone can filter out unwanted ambient noise from your surroundings when you speak. Voice morphing Voice morphing transforms your natural voice into something bigger, smaller, bolder, or completely different. As you speak, the technology seamlessly modifies the pitch, speed, tone, and other key attributes of your voice. Depending on which morph you choose, the effect can be subtle or quite dramatic. Since the system is not a text-to-voice synthesizer but instead builds on your own voice, you can continue to speak naturally into your microphone while your new, morphed voice is heard inworld. How to preview a voice morph You can preview what your voice will sound like with any of the available morphs before you decide to subscribe to a Morph Pack: Choose Communicate > Voice morphing > Preview from the top menu bar to open the Voice Morphing Preview window. Click Record then speak a sample phrase into your microphone. The Record button turns into a Stop button. Click Stop. Click the name of a voice morph in the list to hear your sample phrase under the influence of that morph. How to get voice morphs Premium members Voice morphs are available as a Premium member perk at no extra charge. To activate your voice morph perk, visit the Premium Voice Morphing region and select your preferred voice morph pack by clicking on the pillar in front of the sign. ⚠️ If you see a green L$ button on the pillar, do not click it! You might be in the non-Premium voice morph region, Voice Island. The Premium Voice Morph vendors do not have a green button; all morphs are available in the Premium Morph Services region at no Linden dollar cost. You'll receive a link in your viewer's Chat window asking you to click to activate the new voice morphs in your viewer. Once you've clicked, your viewer will send a message confirming that you have new voice morphs available. Non-Premium members Voice morphs are available exclusively in themed Morph Packs. Non-Premium members can subscribe to a Morph Pack in 30-day increments by paying a scripted vendor object inworld: Choose Communicate > Voice morphing > Subscribe to open your web browser to: https://secondlife.com/destination/voice-island. In your web browser, click Teleport to teleport to Voice Island. Find a voice morph vendor that contains a voice morph you like. Be sure to preview each voice morph before subscribing, as described above. Click the vendor. How to use a voice morph Choose a voice morph from Communicate > Voice morphing. When transmitting, your voice is now altered by the selected voice morph.

    Text chat and instant messages

    Using text chat How to stop the typing animation Text chat emotes Text chat distance limits Automatic text chat translation Sending instant messages (IMs) How to start an IM conversation Offline instant messages Group IM sessions Ad-hoc conferences IM backlogs Scripted objects limit Chat and IM logs Log files Changing log file location Additional chat log settings There are several types of instantaneous text communication in Second Life: Local text chat, where everyone nearby inworld sees what you type. Instant message (IM), where only the recipient sees what you type. Group text chat, where everyone in a group to which you belong sees what you type (if the moderator allows it). Note: Text chat and instant messages are not encrypted. This article explains text chat and IMs. For more information on group text chat, see Group moderation. Using text chat To text chat, click the Chat button (by default in the lower toolbar) or choose Communicate > Chat How to stop the typing animation By default, when you type text chat, an animation plays so that your avatar appears to be typing in mid-air with an accompanying typing sound. To stop the typing animation and sound: Choose Me > Preferences Choose the Chat tab. Deselect Play typing animation when chatting. Text chat emotes You can add emotional nuances to text chat by using emotes. The following emotes affect text chat. /me Begin a line of chat with /me to phrase it from your perspective. For example, if your display name is "Professor Doc" and you enter: /me feels delighted to emote It appears to everyone as: Professor Doc feels delighted to emote /shout Type /shout before text chat to "shout" something. The text will be seen by everyone within a 100 meter radius. You can also shout by completing your line of chat with Ctrl + Enter ↵. Additionally: The text in the Conversations window is preceded by "shouts:". Your avatar plays a shouting animation. For example, if you type /shout Hello, world! The Conversations window shows: shouts: Hello, world! /whisper Type /whisper before a line of text chat to "whisper" something. The text will be seen only by those within a 10 meter radius. Additionally: The text in the Conversations window is preceded by "whispers:". Your avatar plays a whispering animation For example, if you type /whisper Hello, world... The Conversations window shows: whispers: Hello, world... Text chat distance limits How far away your text chat is seen depends on the type of chat and whether you use an emote: Normal text chat has a range of 20 meters; that is, you must be standing within 20 meters of the source to hear the chat. To use normal text chat, input your text into the chat field, then press Enter. Shouted text chat has a range of 100 meters. Whispered text has a range of 10 meters. Instant messages, group chats and friend conferences have no distance limitations. The recipients will see the text regardless of where they are inworld. Automatic text chat translation You can set up the Second Life Viewer to automatically translate text chat into the language of your choosing. You must set up an account with Google or Bing to enable text chat translation. Previously, Google provided free translation services, but this has now ended, and you must establish your own account with Bing or Google which may incur a cost. Choose Me > Preferences > Chat, then click Translation to display the Chat Translation Settings window. Sending instant messages (IMs) Instant messaging (IM) is a private way to communicate with individuals or groups to which you belong. You can IM any Resident, no matter where they are, inworld or offline, at any time, in contrast to local chat which is limited to those inworld at the same time. How to start an IM conversation Start an IM conversation with a person in any of these ways: Right-click a nearby avatar and choose IM. Click the People button in the toolbar, then in the Nearby or My Friends tab: Double-click a person's name. Alternatively, right-click the person's name and choose IM In a person's profile: Click Choose IM. Click to open the Search window, then: Select People in the dropdown. Enter your search term and click Search. In the search results, click IM under the desired person. To put more than one person in the same IM conversation, see Group IM sessions. Offline instant messages By default, if you get an IM and are not logged in, Second Life emails the IM to you offline at the email address specified in your contact information. You can change this preference in your Second Life dashboard or the Viewer. On the Web: Log in to your dashboard. On the left, click Account, then click Change Email Address. Check or uncheck I would like to receive offline IMs via Email. Click Save Changes. In the Second Life Viewer: Choose Me > Preferences. Click the Chat tab. Select Email me IMs when I'm offline. Replying to IM emails If you reply via email to an IM, the original sender receives an IM. You still receive the forwarded IMs the next time you log in (up to 15 on a Basic account or 80 on a Premium account), but you do not see any replies you've made via email. When replying to an IM by email, the message is limited to 1023 characters, and you must reply within five days. Group IM sessions As a member of a group, you can send IMs to everyone in the group. To do this, double-click your group's name in the People window to open an IM session with all online group members or choose Communicate > Groups. For more information, see Group moderation. Ad-hoc conferences In addition to individual and group IMs, you can also create an ad-hoc IM conference among a set of your friends. To start an ad hoc IM conference: Click the People button on the toolbar. Click the Friends section. Use Shift-click or Ctrl-Click to select friends for your IM conference. Click the dropdown and choose IM or Call. Type something in the IM chat box to start your IM conference. Press Enter. Note: Ad-hoc conferences are limited to no more than twenty participants. IM backlogs If you receive an IM and are not logged in, the IM goes into a "backlog" that appears as a set of notification icons in the upper right of your Viewer when you log in. The backlog can contain up to 25 IMs for Basic accounts or 50 IMs for Premium accounts, including inventory transfers, group invitations, and group notifications. If someone gives you an inventory item (generating an IM message), the message lands in your inventory's Trash folder, and you can rescue it when you return.
