[jitsi-dev] A big mute button


#1

Hi

Sorry again for adding to Jira without discussion.

http://java.net/jira/browse/JITSI-1019

As my other post explains, being a frequent conference call participant
I find I'm forever clicking the mute/unmute button, but the mute button
in Jitsi is so tiny I occasionally have to hunt for it, and the light
blue highlight isn't very noticeable, so I often have to make a
conscious effort to see the status, otherwise I end up talking while
it's muted (very frustrating).

I'm not so keen in a push-to-talk button, since I'd then be holding
down the button for a long time each time I press it :o)

This is hopefully something I can add myself, either as a quick hack or
a preference option, etc. but I hope it would be nice to have for
others.

Cheers
Duncan

Hey there,

Unfortunately, I don't think we would be working on a "big mute button"
in the near future. In the mean time you could use the mute shortcut
(Ctrl+M by default) so that you don't have to look for it every time.

Talking while on mute is something else though. I agree that this may
indeed be prone to confusion. I've heard some headsets play a couple of
short beeps periodically to remind the user they are on mute. I'd be
curious to here more thoughts here.

Cheers,
Emil
