Press to Talk
From a pilot's perspective, you might notice choppy audio while maintaining a nearly flawless network connection. This is often times due to the half-duplex nature of the Beam's audio makeup; meaning, Beam cannot always simultaneously listen and talk. This limitation is amplified in open plan and noisy environments.
To remedy choppy audio on a half-duplex system (Beam Standard/Enhanced), consider employing the press to talk feature. This will allow the use of the microphone without the inconvenience of mouse clicks in addition to the feedback and delay.
Enable Mute - Press Spacebar to Talk
- First, mute your microphone.
- Then, simply press the space bar on your keyboard when you're ready to interject verbally.
Try it out! But don't forget you're muted.
