Tools > Preferences > Sounds
(warning) SITE Preference

These preferences are used to configure the sounds that play when certain events occur in Textbook Tracker. To change a sound setting, make a selection from the dropdown menus located to the right of each event description. For example, if you want the smooth, mellow tone of a saxophone to play when an item is checked in, choose Saxes from the drop-down menu located to the right of the Check In event in the Librarian sounds section. If you don't want Alexandria to play any sounds at all, uncheck Enable Textbook Sounds.

Click the speaker icon at the right of each dropdown menu to preview the selected sound.
