The Loud Typer application loads into the system menu bar and makes sounds when you press any key. This works system-wide and in all applications.

Although the Loud Typer app has a wide range of built-in sound themes to choose from, you can also use your own sounds. (Note: in the free version, the choice of sound themes is limited to the default theme.)

Loud Typer allows you to customize keyboard sounds individually for each application.

Loud Typer loads the icon into the system menu bar to access application settings. The main program window is opened using: System menu bar > "Loud Typer" icon > "Settings ..." menu item.

Note: external speakers (Bluetooth speakers, USB speakers) can affect the sound quality.

Great app, very responsive developer.

Update: Immediately after posting my review, an update came through with new Backspace and Enter sounds. You can't beat the for responsiveness! Thanks, MK. Really enjoying this app.

(What are the chances that the Backspace sound could be about half the volume of the typing and Enter sounds? I'm getting really self-conscious about how many mistakes I make. LOL!)

The typing sound is good, and doesn't lag behind my typing as a general rule. If I do get going really fast, sometimes the carriage movement sound sort of piles on top of the individual keys and that can be pretty distracting.

My main complaints, though, are that the delete/backspace should sound different than the regular typing sound, and the carriage return should end with a bell. For the price, I was suprised to find these elements missing.

Update: Nice to hear this from you! Your comments are always welcome and very valuable to improve the application.

Thank you for your comments! For the price, there are other sound themes for you to choose from. Hope you like them too! Use the small typewriter-like icon in the system menu bar to change the application settings.

Review change

I originally gave this one star because it didn't work and there were a lot of hoops to jump through just getting to a person to help. I am changing the review to four stars after being contacted very quickly by the developer and now the app is running as advertized.
The app is really fun. I enjoy it very much. It does what is says and more.
Cons: There is something hinky with the app if you look at the number of reviews that mention they couldn't get it to work without intervention.
Pros: The developer answers the problems very quickly and gets you going.
So, I would give it five stars but for the obvious hiccup at starting the app up. It IS worth the money, but be prepared for a initial need to get help.

This only works on my Caps Lock and Shift

UPDATE: The app now works. Thank you for your quick response time. :)

I was very excited about this app when I downloaded it, but the sound seems to work only when I press the Shift or Caps Lock keys. I tried to see if this was an issue with the particular setting I had on (maybe I had the wrong mode set), but it seems that everything looks right in the app settings. I am pretty disappointed.
