A handy snippet for setting key click sound, I wrote it because I often want to turn key click off or make it louder. Value 0 is off, 1 is default, 2 is a good setting for (LZ) typing as it is louder without being annoying, 4-12 gives more of a chirp, 30+ gives a beep, beyond about 60 it could be annoying.
Works on 2 line or 4 line, I find it better than the other memory resident utilities that do this task as it won’t interfere with other memory resident code. Worth adding to menu if you change this setting often, feel free to use or modify as you see fit.
Code: Select all
PRINT “ Current setting”,PEEKB(8384)
PRINT “ New setting?”
AT 17,2 :INPUT S%
Default 2 line Psion machines setting is 1, but on LZ to get the same sound as the 2 line machines set LZ to 2, LZ default 1 is a bit too quiet for my taste when programming. YMMV
