      Low volume beep

      Post

           I'm using FMGo with a bluetooth scanner.  I'm using the beep scriptstep to let the user know when it is a valid scan.  The beep on the ipad is so low you can barely hear it.  When I adjust the volume on the iPad it has no affect.  Any thoughts hear?

               Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.

               The volume on the iPad does affect the Beep sound.  Go into Settings, tap Sounds in the left pane, and put the volume slidebar to the far right (maximum value), and execute the Beep in FileMaker Go.  Repeat with the volume slidebar in the middle-left position and execute the Beep in FileMaker Go.  There should be a noticeable difference in sound.

               Let me know if you are still having difficulty.

                 Yes you are correct. The volume of the beep can be controled by the slider bar on the ipad.  I have it up full volume and it's still to soft in the environment that I am using it.  Can anything else be done to make it louder.  Unfortunately the Speak Command on the Go is not available.... I tried to record a loud sound and put it into a container field and I could'nt make that work right.  It needs to be fast and if I remember correctly the screen flips.

                   After much testing, I can confirm the Beep sound is softer than the iOS beeps.  At this time, it is not possible to make it louder.

                   I have forwarded this information to our Development and Testing departments so they can consider increasing the volume in a future release.

                     I'll second this. I have two projects stalled because of this, with no solution in sight...
