When using Verizon Messenger,'s Text-to-Speech, the 'try saying something' or 'tap to speak" feature specifically, when I touch the microphone to trigger this feature it makes a ding sound. The ding sound is at top volume even though the volume of my phone is normally very low. This is very annoying especially when trying to do some dictation. Any way to turn off the ding sound or lower the volume? It almost seems like it's too loud for the built-in speaker and might damage it. I believe this started happening after the most recent phone update which was less than a week ago. Thoughts? Thank you.
We are always here to help, GoodEnoughThen. I know how important it is to make sure this function is working properly.
Are you only hearing that sound when you first the "tap to speak" button, or do you hear it while you dictate the message?
I tested this on my phone, and I also hear the "ding" sound when you first press the button. There is no option to lower the volume of that sound. If you place the phone on silent, you will not hear that sound when using this function.
