AutoPTT: Voice-activated Push-to-Talk
AutoPTT is a Windows application that presses and/or releases your push-to-talk key based on voice activity.
You can try it out for free! Just download, unzip and run!
- Use voice activation when it's not officially supported (Discord priority speaker, Valorant team voice, etc)
- Universal voice activation: set up once in AutoPTT, then use push-to-talk (and have AutoPTT press the key)
- Automatically press push-to-talk with soundboard apps like Voicemod (by voice activation or extra activation key)
- Advanced voice activation options such as Tap mode, Push-to-Mute and Release Delay (see below)
- Voice Activity: The app will both press and release the Push-to-Talk key for you.
- Tap: You start speaking by pressing the Push-to-Talk key but you can release the key immediately after; the app will keep Push-to-Talk active until you stop speaking.
- Manual: Does nothing. Will still play sound effects for you though if you want a confirmation for when you've pressed or released the Push-to-Talk key.
- Change to a specific Activation Mode
- Cycle between Activation Modes
- Extra Activation Keys (for use with soundboard apps and Tap mode)
Play sound when...
- Push-to-Talk has been pressed or released (by you, or by AutoPTT)
- Push-to-Mute has been pressed or released
- Activation Mode has been changed
- Release Delay: Keep the mic active for a time even after the sound level drops below the activation threshold.
- Safe (aka Paranoid) mode: Make sure that the PTT key doesn't get stuck in an active state, which can happen on some systems when running programs with elevated privileges.
If you run it and get an error that mentions a missing DLL, you should install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables.
There is also a changelog, in case you're curious about what's new in each release.
You can buy a license through Gumroad. It's a one-time purchase, valid forever, for all future updates.
You may try the app without a license, too, but there's a catch: it will only work for 5 minutes, after which you'll have to restart it. Hopefully this is enough for you to verify that the app works (if not, let me know) and that it's worth paying for.
There are some games that require a physical key press to activate the mic. The app won't work with them unless you also use the Sidekick device. Some of these games are listed below.
- Counter-Strike 2
