Anyone else notice spotty ATC voices?

Recommended Posts

For me installation and setup went quite well. I did a few short orientation flights and then tried out the A320. As a long time user of the PMDG 737, the default A320 was different and I'm still not sure what really works and what doesn't (mainly with the FMC as it's different than the one in the 737). So, I'm not sure what is a bug, what is turned off and what is just my lack of experience with the aircraft.


But, I digress - just sharing...


My main issue for this thread is that I'm getting an audible voice from ATC or "myself" only about 10% of the time. I can see the text scrolling, but you only hear the mic chirp - no voice. 10% of the time its fine.


Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Any solutions out there?

After taking off without any ATC (which I've deferred to the co-pilot anyway), I got a semi audible sound about two thirds of the way into my flight, no text repeater message and nothing else after that. So it looks like ATC is actually worse than FS9 or FSX.

Have you installed the English (United States) Language Pack from Windows Update? ATC needs this language pack installed to work properly. Go to Settings/Time & Language/Language and under the Preferred Languages heading, click on + Add a language.

There is a work around for now...in the sound settings change the voice setting Azure to Windows. Sound is not as good but you won't have the cut outs. Read on the microsoft forums that they probably need to tweak something server side to push the voice more reliably.

If you have the language pack installed, it is definitely the Azur setting that's failing. Just change this setting to Windows offline and the ATC sound will come back for all messages exchange, you, AYC service and live AI traffic.


Hope this helps


best regards
