Special Commands for the Talking Client.

The talking client requires a handful of specialized commands to handle its voice preferences and other peculiarities. Here's a reference:

  • Faster increases the speed of the voice. You can enter this command several times until the voice is fast enough.
  • Higher raises the pitch of the voice. You can enter this command several times until the voice is high enough.
  • Louder increases the volume of the voice. You can enter this command several times until the voice is loud enough.
  • Lower lowers the pitch of the voice. You can enter this command several times until the voice is low enough.
  • Quieter decreases the volume of the voice. You can enter this command several times until the voice is quiet enough.
  • Slower decreases the speed of the voice. You can enter this command several times until the voice is slow enough.
  • Voice changes the selected voice. Type 'voice <voice-name>', where the name of the voice is one of the voices available in the voices list. Type 'voice default' to restore the default voice.
  • Voices reads a list of the voices available.
  • Arrow keys and escape key navigate through the last spoken text, allowing individual words such as unusual player names to be spelled:
    • Up arrow re-reads the previous line of the last spoken text.
    • Down arrow re-reads the next line of the last spoken text.
    • Left arrow re-reads the previous word of the last spoken text.
    • Right arrow re-reads the next word of the last spoken text.
    • Escape key spells the current word of the last spoken text.
  • Arrow keys with modifier navigate through your command history, and the channel messages received from the game. On Mac, use the "Meta" (command or Apple) key plus the arrows; on Windows use the shift key plus the arrows.
    • Command (Mac) or shift (Win) plus Up arrow retrieves the previous command in the history and enters it into the command field.
    • Command (Mac) or shift (Win) plus Down arrow retrieves the next command in the history and enters it into the command field.
