Configuring Notification Sounds

If your mobile computer can play sounds, you can use the Registry to configure the notifications that play when scanning tickets. To configure the notification sound in the Registry, you must know the path and file name of the .WAV file you want to use on the mobile computer. The default location for .WAV files on mobile computers is in the \Application\Wav folder. Users can disable sounds on their mobile computer as turning off sounds can help save power and prolong battery life.

If you are using DataWedge and Internet Explorer for bar code capture, the .WAV file configured in the Registry will play in addition to any DataWedge notification settings. For more information on mobile computer notifications, refer to Configuring Notifications on a Mobile Computer. If you are using Symbol PocketBrowser to access Access Control, only the Registry settings are used. For more information, refer to Symbol PocketBrowser Configuration (MC3090).

If using a scanner with no external speaker, the following nodes in the Registry application will need to be modified to remove the .WAV file:
  • Registry::EN::Application::GateManagement::Notification node's 'Fail Sound' field
  • Registry::EN::Application::GateManagement::Notification node's 'Pass Sound' field

If the .WAV file is not removed, the scanner could crash when tickets are scanned because the scanner will not know how to handle the .WAV file. It will however still make internal sounds, such as different frequencies of beep to denote pass or fail. To determine whether your MC3090 model has speakers, refer to Identifying Whether Your MC3090 Model Can Play Sounds.

To configure sounds, complete the following:

  1. Open the Registry application from the AudienceView Desktop.
  2. Navigate to the Registry::EN::Application::Gate Management::Notification node.
  3. Enter the path and file name of the .WAV file in the 'Fail Sound' and 'Pass Sound' fields.
    Enter the file name in the format FILE:\<path>\<wave_file>.wav, where <path> is the path to the file on the mobile computer and <wave_file> is the name of the .WAV file. 
  4. Click 'Apply'.
    A window confirms that the application updated the Registry.
  5. Click 'OK'.
