Anyone willing to tackle this? A program that displays a (sizable?) overlay anytime audio is muted. An example would be a user clicks the volume control in the taskbar and clicks the "Mute" check box. A large window appears stating "Audio Muted". It would be even better if the program window was on the top layer of the display (all other programs forced to stay under).

This has already been made by that AHK guy on this site. I've been using it for a month. Let me find it...

That might do it! The only thing I would like is re sizable text, which I'll add to that post.


Thx!

What would you say the differences between the two are? (I can't read German or whatever it is)

You might fancy 3RVX - a skinnable volume controller (requires .NET).

Although the site is German the applet displays in English. It's a fairly small and simple tool which basically just pops up and shows the volume level/mute status when changed. It also shows a system tray icon giving the same information. It's fairly easy to find the download link on the German site and then install and give it a try.

I've only used lanux's program but these seem to be two different programs.

Lanux brings up a mute message permentatly when you computer is muted, these bring up icons showing you the volume level, and when you mute it tells you but then hides.

I use mine as I mute Napster when answering the phone at work and always forget to turn it back on a few minutes later.
