    Can I speak to only one person?

    I'm noob to TS, so apologies if this is a stupid question.

    My WoW guild uses TS on all its raids. I have a friend who's relatively new to the game and I'd like to bring him in on his first raid. As it's all going to be very new to him, I'd like to be able to give him lots of direction as the raid progresses, but I don't want everyone else to have to listen to it. So...

    Is there a way for the two of us to hear the general channel, but have our own speaking channel? That is, only he can hear me, and only I can hear him?

    I hope I've described this clearly enough.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello

    You have the whisper function for that.
    Tools > Whisper list > Create a new one (with a new hotkey) > Select your firend in the right part.

    Hello.

    Well, but your friend have to do the same with you.

    Greetings.

    I hate to ask dumb questions, but for the life of me, I can't find any documentation on Teamspeak. Is it right there in front of me and I can't see it? I found a faq (nothing I need there) and a knowledge base (nothing there), but no simple document that explains the various features and how to use them.

    I searched all over the place for info on whisper, but as far ask I can tell, the way to do this is to set it up with some sort of push-to-talk button when you want to whisper. This isn't what I'm looking for. I need this feature to be constantly enabled. Is that possible? Is any of this documented somewhere that I could read about it?

    Thanks for the replies. I appreciate the help.

    Arg, effectively, this is not the "normal" use of the whisper function.

    I'll try to explain you step by step how do that (but it's not really the easiest solution )

    1) - Create a Whisper
    Tools > Whisper List > new button > and choose a hotkey (and reply)
    Select your friend in the right part.

    2) - Change the hotkey behavior
    So, to avoid to press the whisper hotkey every time you want to talk directly with your friend,
    Settings > Options > Hotkeys
    Double click on the whisper hotkey (that you have created just above)
    Select the action for this hotkey (e.g. Whisper > Activate WhisperList > F9(Clavier) > Default)
    Now choose the On key release option

    3) - To activate/deactivate
    Of course you have to set a "toggle" hotkey. Else you will always in a whisper "status".
    So, in the Hotkeys settings > click on Add > Show Advanced Actions button

    Self part > Whisper > Deactivate Whisperlist > select your hotkey > select your list (normaly - default)

    Double click on this and select a new hotkey (of course with the On Key Down opion

    To conclude
    To talk only with your friend, just use the whisper hotkey
    To deactivate the whisper and talk with all other, just use the second hotkey (from the part 3)

    Of course your friend has to do the same thing.

    There seems to be a small problem with this solution.
    Section 2: Change the hotkey behavior
    Don't apply the change to "On key release"

    Tested in Windows_32 XP SP3 (Server:3.0.3 / Client:3.0.6) and (Server:3.0.1 / Client:3.0.5)

    Following the sequence, described.

    After double click (or Edit), display "Hotkey Setup Dialog", when change to "On key release" and OK, window can't close.

    To change the hotkey behavior you have to select it before. Else no changes will be considered.

    But to avoid any other question I added a new step in the 2) part.
