You can use visual cues rather than sounds in many apps by changing your settings. Here's how:
|Windows 10||Go to Start , type the phrase Replace sounds with visual cues, and then select Replace sounds with visual cues.|
Windows RT 8.1
Then select the options that you want to use:
- Turn on visual notifications for sounds. This option replaces system sounds with visual cues, such as a flash on the screen, so you can see notifications even when they're not heard. You can also choose how you want sound notifications to warn you.
- Turn on text captions for spoken dialog. With this option, Windows will display text captions in place of sounds to indicate that activity is happening on your PC (for example, when a document starts or finishes printing).
