You deserve a break

no sound anymore

Hi,

Somehow the sound in my Time Out isn't working anymore. It used to work.

When I go to preferences, at 'Play sound at start' I choose Sound/Music File. If I click on the triangle next to it, it gives the sound of the file that I downloaded. But when there is a pause (I can see the logo appear in the background and the computer freezes for a few seconds) there is no sound.
The general sound in the computer is on.

Do you have a suggestion how to fix this?

Thanks,
Nynke

Re: no sound anymore

Hi Nynke,

I haven't heard of this before. It sounds like everything is set up correctly. What happens if you start a break manually (via the Start button in the sidebar)?

Have you tried restarting your Mac? That can sometimes help with strange issues.

Re: no sound anymore

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me. I tried what you said and I realized that I didn't quite get the difference between the Normal Time Outs and the Micro Time Outs. In one of them the sound worked, in the other it didn't, which I had not realized before.
So I think it is fixed – thanks for your help!

Excellent. I'm glad you figured it out (and it wasn't a bug!).
