#556 Key shortcut to switch between PTT and voice activation


Add the ability to define a keystroke to switch between PTT and voice activation.

As we use Mumble for gaming as well for voice chats, it's pretty annoying, that you always have to go to the menu and switch between PTT and voice activation or to always mute yourself.

Would be great if this feature could be added.

    Ok, I see this was already asked in 2273240. At least I and my friends would fing it useful. But I agree, that not everyone would use it.

    I second this.

    Use case:

    Friend playing in the living room (Small flat). Loud family enters and start watching TV. We're in the middle of a panic event in Left 4 Dead. It would be so sweet if he could just press a key and start using PTT instead of VA..

    I would take this a step further, I don't just want a quick key to toggle(which I do). I also would like button, similar to the mute button which shows in brite red when I have voice activation turned on.

    While playing games my ppt is left alt. While talking to friends and working on my computer however this key can cause me to issue unexpected quick keys in other software. I have used left alt while gaming for many many years, this works great with my gaming setup but not great while working. I generally turn ppt off and switch to voice activate while working. forgeting this feature on though can be embarsing and swapping requires quite a few clicks.
