Unwanted background noise in a voice chat can be very distracting to the people around you; it may make it harder for them to hear your voice, and it can shatter their suspension of disbelief by highlighting your real life environment. Luckily, there are a few tactics you can use to minimize the encroachment of real life noise into your Second Life experience:
+
 
+
* Invest in a computer headset with a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noise-canceling_microphone noise-canceling microphone]. Using a headset ensures that you won't transmit the sounds made by your computer's speakers, and a noise-canceling microphone can filter out unwanted ambient noise from your surroundings when you speak.
+
* Use the push-to-talk function in Second Life's voice feature. By only "transmitting" when you have something to say, you won't inadvertently broadcast any ambient noise or side-conversations happening around you. For more info on push-to-talk, check out our article on [[How to Use Voice]].
+
* This may seem like common sense, but make sure the room you're in is as quiet as reasonably possible- close doors to noisy rooms, turn down loud music and ask your friends and colleagues to quiet down... no amount of noise cancelation will filter out a wild party!
