Lower TX volume?

Post by bryanlyle » Tue Dec 20, 2011 6:41 am

Is there a way for Ooma to lower the volume of outgoing calls? My parents are loud talkers. Ridiculously loud talkers. The quality of their phone calls is ok as long as they talk at a normal volume. However, when they talk loud, their voices cut in/out.

I have an Obi110 that allows you to configure the incoming and outgoing volume, but I don't think the Ooma has a setting like that. Is that something that is configurable on Ooma's end?

Also, I've already told them to talk quieter. It hasn't work ;-)

Tell your parents to lower the audio volume on the phones that they are using.

Does lowering the volume of their phones also lower the volume of what is being sent out? I figured it would only affect what they heard.

Put scotch tape over the microphone holes in their phone handset. If you use clear tape, they probably would never notice!

For most phones, the volume control controls both.

Interesting. I'll have them give that a try.
