    @Grail What's not working? Are you still hearing TTS in certain channels?

    I've disabled the use of TTS messages for @everyone yet everyone can still use it. It works in stopping other things such as reading or sending messages but TTS just won't stop no matter what restriction I put on it.

    I have the same problem. I am the server 'owner' and have disabled tts is every possible location, but IT NEVER STOPS!

    @Waffler @dsmarsh for you guys not to HEAR TTS, you need to disable it in User Settings > Notifications, and set it to "never". This article can help:

    @ Cilantrelle This is only for the admin. I can still hear TTS. This seems to be a bug, not an option.

    @dsmarsh the first method listed in the "make it stop" part of the article applies to yourself, the user. Even when you have it set to "never", you're still hearing TTS?

    We are having this issue as well were we disable the ability to use tts on the server for all roles in the server and it still works. I went into all roles and the @everyone role and people can still use the command.

    Switching to the PTB solved the problem for me

    @wiz555 You'll still be able to hear TTS if you have any option selected in User settings > Text & Images. Be sure to switch it off there.

    @Aboy glad to hear it!

    I'm getting this bug as well. I'm server owner, and between 5 people, I could hear TTS regardless of who could use it, while 2 users who could not use TTS attempted to and no other member of the server heard them save for me- I initially thought they just were not using the proper command, but I checked and it said they could not use TTS (they were given proper instructions on the command). When I gave them the right to use it, everyone said it worked as normal, but for the past two times I've had a group online (within the past week), I've heard every message sent as TTS while everyone else hears it as normal.

    @Lawman there's 2 different TTS settings that you can adjust, and if you're hearing every message as TTS, you'll have to turn it off in User settings > Notifications. Check out the TTS 101 article here for more details:

    I'm having an issue where I can still hear TTS despite having it disabled in my user settings.

    Help! I'm using the discord desktop app. Every message that I receive is read in tts. I've set my User Notification settings to channel only but I only wanna hear messages received by using /tts. Please help me!

    @XenoAlchemist The /tts command and hearing TTS messages by channel are two separate features. Check out the TTS 101 article to see how to separate those appropriately.

    Hey Please tell me how to not allow some one to chat in the server WITHOUT kicking him. Please reply

    I just can't get past this bug. The server has the option disabled (server settings), the client has the option disabled (user settings) but everything is read out loud, every time, regardless of if the command is used or not, in both DM chats, group chats and server chats. Only when I set it to Deafen or, weirdly, while I'm playing games, the text is not read out loud. This only happens in the Discord standalone app for PC (not in browser) and it is up to date. Uninstalling and reinstalling did not help.

    Okay, this is ridiculous. I am the owner of the discord server and I have all the settings that allow TTS in Discord turned to deny it. However, everyone can still use the TTS option in every channel, which is ridiculous. Is there any way to set the Server to disallow TTS so that people dont spam chat and be annoying.

    @Ryan Peplowski Hearing TTS is a user-based setting, so you can turn it off for yourself, or you can deny the permission for everyone. Double check on both of those and make sure you've got them adjusted appropriately the https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/212517297-Text-to-Speech-101 article can help there!

    When I'm in a call with someone it automatically enables TTS and there is no way to disable it until the call ends. Is there a way to disable it there?(The "allow playback and usage of /tts command." Does not work)

    If not, please add one.

    please put all the TTS options in one place in the menu. having them in two places doesn't make sense, and makes it _Very_ frustrating trying to figure out why you're still getting TTS when you specifically have it disabled (But only in one place..)

    @dogwarrior24 That's odd that it'd be enabled during a call. Have you tried completely reinstalling the app and restarting your device? If you haven't already, send a message to support@discordapp.com and we can help figure out what's happening!

    @TheTrel I'd be more than happy to forward that feedback directly to the team on putting both TTS options in one place in the menu!

    I deleted the appdata file and restarted it and it stopped doing it.
