TeamTalk v5.8.1 released

TeamTalk v5.8.1 is now available in the Download-section after a long beta-testing period. Many accessibility issues were fixed in the Default TeamTalk Client (Qt Client) during beta-testing, so the move from TeamTalk 5 Classic to Default TeamTalk client should be easier.

Again many thanks to Corentin (aka Oreonan) for addressing the accessibility issues in the Default TeamTalk client.

On the TeamTalk 5 GitHub web-site we’ve set up a Discussion forum where people can ask questions and propose ideas. Check out TeamTalk Discussions on GitHub.

  1. Concerning 5.7.1-release-notes, it should be possible to open tt-URLs on android-devices. I didn’t manage to open a tt-URL on android with latest Teamtalk, although Teamtalk is running. When clicking the url, nothing happens. What exactly has to be done, to open a tt-url on android?

    • Hm, yes, it doesn’t work correctly. If you quit TeamTalk entirely on Android (using the task-manager) and afterwords pressing the .tt file or tt-URL then it works (as far as I remember).

  2. This is a good step in the right direction for making the Mac client accessible, but an option to have the speech read lists automatically as you arrow would be nice. Pressing Command+g every time you move with up and down arrow is not ideal. It would also be useful to read other inaccessible lists such as the TTS events list which is currently difficult to use with VoiceOver.

  3. Hello, I know you were working on disabling channel messages within a channel, how does one does this in latest version of TT? Or is this not implemented yet? Thhanks.
