There are many people with computers with no sound.

A lot of times, I'll have the sound off on my computer, and I can find them just fine.

With Goober, he's standing upright, and he's fairly tall, and he's a giant St. Bernard with a crazy outfit on. Plus, I think he has a little speech bubble above him saying something when he comes into the room.

With Mr. Moo... he doesn't make a sound, actually.

With Dug, like Goober, he's a giant dog with a crazy outfit on. He doesn't make any sound that I know of, either.

And, with the Leprechaun, after he had been in the room for about 30 seconds, he would start dancing around.

Sorry once again to burst your bubble, but I don't really see how you can't see these characters. They are giant, upright Webkinz in crazy outfits. In my opinion, I don't think they need flashing (strobe lights can hurt my eyes sometimes, and I know some people have epilepsy, which means that flashing lights can really do super-bad things to them) or any more movement.

*shields self from negative comments coming my way*

Hi I agree with you. I managed on WW since Aug 2006 without sound. I never know what anything sounded like. or even if they made a sound.
I never knew the leprechaun, ms birdie or goober MADE a noise!!! I just watched for their movement.

Maybe not a flashing light because they can cause seziures. But a movement would be good. Or maybe a little notice on your phone (in WW) (like maybe a blinking phone).

I don't anyone should ever be fearful of posting opinions! It's great that you have pointed out that being able to hear is not a necessity of the game. You're right that there are ways to see what is going on in WW. Many times I myself have my volume turned off because I find some of the noises irritating! I do think that Aiorna does have a valid point though. The sound is something we CAN turn on and off. Other people don't have that luxury. So from Aiorna's point of view, it would just be helpful if some things could be made more easily visible such as additional animation.

Many of us use WW for recreation. There are a lot of people that use it as a learning tool and would benefit from enhancements. I think it would be nice to see Ganz move forward with making things more accessible for people of all needs.

Well, good news for you, then! If you feel like spending a little more money (Annual Deluxe is the best value), you can get a Deluxe Membership, and in Kinzchat, you can change your speech bubble. Some are just different colors, but some sparkle and some have little moving icons on them. You can also use the smilies at the end of your messages on Kinzchat; those are animated.

Interesting idea! I know that without the sound I would not notice him. So movement might be nice for everyone!

I think you have a very valid point Aiorna!

Webkinz World should definitely have something that could replace sound with either a flashing phone or something around the dock area. I think it would be a fabulous idea to pass along to Ganz that maybe in our options (where we can turn on or off the ads from other companies) maybe there could be a setting that would allow us to choose to either hear sounds or "see" sounds by the means of some kind of flashing symbol or something.

I am going to send this suggestion right now to Ganz!

Thanks Aiorna for the great idea!

I think the main advantage though is that people could browse other websites and WI and then click to WW when they heard the sound, and so people who don't have that sound for whatever reason really ddo just have to sit and wait.
