    Sounds like the instant message thing on aol :sunny:

    You have a list of 'friends' and the voice comes on when they log onto, and then again when they sign out, of their aol instant message bit :)

    I haven't explained that very well at all have I? :confused3
    Sorry :rotfl:

    If she was browseing the web it could of been a "Smiley Face" advert, there new smileys what speak and say weird things like "Hi,You've got mail" - It happened to me like every hour and then I realised it was just a advert lol...or it could be msn/aol/yahoo messanger

    Oh cool, she was getting a bot freaked out by it! I might just sneakily turn the volume down on the computer - she won't realise it's doing it then!

    Thanks for the replies! :thumbsup2

    It is instant message on AOL. It freaked me out when I first heard it - I though someone was hacking into my computer! :rotfl2:

    As another AOL user I can confirm it is the Instant Messenger audible alert she is hearing, no more, no less than that! :teeth:

    Yep that's the AOL woman alright. She scares the life out of me sometimes when it's all quiet in my house and I've accidentally left the volume up loud!!
