no capture sound on snagit

  • Updated 6 years ago
I am using two computers with snagit. windows 7 64 bit has snagit 11. Vista 32 bit laptop has snagit 10. Even though the option is ticked on both neither has a sound when a capture is made. I do not see a wav file in snagit, is this how it works or does it call a windows sound?

These computers are set to no sounds modified. They do have sounds when email arrives but no  start up sounds etc

How should no sound modified be modified further to have the snagit alert?

Hey there,

Snagit 10 isn't able to capture system audio at all. Is that what you are trying to capture? I'm not sure I follow along with your question.

It is the alert on capture, screened here  with faststone. I do not get an alert. In faststone there is a click like a camera shutter

Hello,

The sound that Snagit will use when "Capture is finished" is checked for audible alerts is the "Default Beep" in the Windows Sounds options.

In your first screenshot you'll need to pick a sound for the "Default Beep" and then you should hear it when the capture is finished.

Did you hit the Apply button on the windows sound dialog box after setting that sound? Also double check that audible alert when capture is finished is still set.

If that doesn't work could you try setting the sound scheme from "No Sounds (modified)" to "Windows Default" and Apply that setting temporarily just to see if you get a sound on capture then?

yes i hit apply.
Yes windows default works but i do not want all those other sounds. I only want sound on emaila arriving and taking the capture. faststone has sound even with no sounds modified. silent snagit i guess
Thanks

I think you can check for the sounds in the general settings of the system and also check the snagit sounds. If there will be a checkbox which doesn't checked, you can make it checked and then click apply button and see the changes.
