  1. How do you get the lady on TWS to say... "Order Filled" "Order Pending"

    I got to Configure >> Golbal Configuration >> sound Manager, and the sounds are enabled. When I go to click "Play" I don't hear anything.

    I have tested other sounds on my computer and they work. Does IB have a something else you have to check to make this sound work?
  2. mss


    I was unaware that TWS generated these audio messages. I have heard these messages when I used Ninja Trader, however.
  3. yeah that was how I recall of those messages. HA!
  4. do you have speakers?
  5. yes I do. The sounds doesn't work... they I tested another sound from somewhere else so I know my sound system on the computer works
  6. Why the hell did this post get moved to Trading Software... why can't it stay in Retail Brokerages. I understand that it is software, but it is also about retail brokerages?

    Moderator: are you pay by the amount of posts you move? geez
