Peter,

Could this be made a standard Windows type sound process?
i.e. simply playing a wave file?

That way, users could optionally replace the wav file with
one of their own.

(I rather think the kids would love hearing "Big Ben"
booming out - smile)

George.

Joanie,

The setting is supposed to stick.  We'll have to look into
that.

And while we never thought to build in a volume adjustment,
the idea is that the bell is supposed to be at a volume
comparable to other system notification sounds.

So I've a bit to look into here.

Thanks again.

- Peter

Update:  It tolls for me. :)

The toll was quiet compared to the rest of the sounds on
this computer (beeps, alerts, screen readers, etc.).  Too
much rock music as a youth I guess.... Although the value
still is not showing up in the View Preferences dialog.  Any
chance it could display the current value, just like the
current six-key set gets displayed?
