    Default What push-to-talk key do you use for voice chat?

    Mine's caps lock, but the unfortunate side effect of this that is that caps lock might be toggled on sometimes and I have to remember to turn it off before typing.

    I've tried shift and control, but those are usually bound to other functions in other games.

    What are you guys using?

    I've generally used my middle mouse button (pressing down the scroll wheel). Though in Rift this moves my screen around, so I might change that, or see if I can change what it does in Rift.

    Same here. Since I don't chat on mic much it's a nice out of the way key to bind.

    The Grave key. Because when I have to talk on vent, characters are about to die.

    I am a mouse button 4 person. I use the mouse to move, and the button sits right under my finger, which makes it very easy. It also makes it easy to unintentionally push to talk when I didn't mean to!!

    Used to have it bound to Mouse Button 5 on my Logitech G5 but now i've got a Naga and all those buttons are the keys on the Numpad so thats not an option as they are for abilities in rift, So i'm trying out the ` key.

    May even give F12 a go with it assigned to my G6 or G1 key...

    My experience with people who don't utilize PTT has usually been pretty negative, ranging from hearing heavy breathing, to chewing, to tedious conversations with friends and family members, hearing their kids, or pets, etc. Not saying this applies to you obviously but yeah. PTT cuts down significantly on noise pollution. In most raiding environments I've been in those people get globally muted pretty fast.
