    on OSX desktop client, mic is not detected. On Chrome it's picking it up fine?

    So when I press the assigned PTT (/) it doesn't activate my mic or anything. Instead I see it repeating the char in the type section. I even tried to utilize it during game to see if discord picked it up, nothing.

    I have tried running discord as an administrator per the article listed above but unless Discord has focus, PTT does not work. This changed since I got the upgrade last night. If my game has focus, PTT does not work Was there a change in focus in the update.

    Update...I found out that PTT does work if you follow the instructions of running the program as administrator. You do this by right clicking the executable and then click on "Properties". Once the properties window opens, click on the "Compatibility" tab. Then select "Run as Administrator". Click "Save". Once done, go into the System Tray at the bottom right corner of your screen to expose hidden icons. Close all instances of Discord. If two instances of Discord are displayed, PTT will not work. I unchecked the Start Discord when Windows Starts.. This way I know that I have to start the program and only one instance will be running at a time. PTT now works great.

    parrain vert, make sure that you are in the Voice channel and it says Voice Connected near the bottom left of the window. Also, make sure your cursor is not in chat text box.

    OS X Version doesn't recognize any kind of voice input, browser version does however.

    Why do I not get the option to Push-to-Talk?

    @DaTrucker hello again! The browser app PTT only works if you have the window in focus. If you download the desktop app, you should have it no problem. Is it not functioning, or do you not see the option?

    Can't download app, tried. I submitted a ticket to you. Sorry for snapping, just a lot of stress right now trying to get this to work because I've been trying for a while.

    I thought this programs was suppose to be easy to use, installing and ready for actian. but you have to do all these weird setups. and in the end it still doesn't work. Mic works fine, for now. Skype is better for me. I Install it, add someone and I can just call them. thats it

    @yonzy We're working on adding a friends list that will make 1:1 calls very simple and similar to Skype. Still working on it, though. =[

    I can't use the standard ctrl+caps lock keybind that I've used in every other VOIP program for years (mumble, vent, TS) it simply won't recognize capslock. Was hoping for a config file I could manually edit, but that doesn't seem to exist either. Capslock is literally the only key in the wasd area that never has a default binding in any game, which makes it perfect for a PTT or mic mute toggle keybind. Please fix this?

    My problem with voice activate is when I use it , it is also putting through the sounds of the game... I need to fix this because when I play certain games i required immediate response and I don't have time to push to talk. How can I fix this... I can't find anything about this problem.. Thank you, Vanyai

    Why is there no way to test my voice? Like in Steam when I can hear my own voice to test how it sounds. People are having a hard time hearing me and the problem relies in Discord but cant find out what is wrong

    @Michael we don't have it just yet, but we'll be looking to implement it in the future. In the meantime, be sure to upvote it over at feedback.discordapp.com.

    I have a button on my mouse bound to the "-" key. When I use the mouse, it does not work. If I press the "-" key on my keyboard, it does. Any idea on what might be wrong or how I can fix? Thanks!

    Discord will not change to voice mode for me. I have tried to disable PTT in settings but I keep getting a message that PTT is required in this channel. It was working fine when I first installed it.

    So tell me why I set push to talk to the C button and now its not listed and I cannot remove it. I want my middle mouse button to be the push to talk button now, but C button is not listed so it cannot be removed. Uninstalled Discord and reinstalled and it still persists. What the heck is going on that an uninstall doesn't fix the issue... pretty lame if you ask me...

    Just to get this straight, is there no way to just have your mic constantly on? I actually really like the background noise and would like to have it if possible.
