So I spoke with a buddy of mine named Allen who got the iPhone 8 this
past Friday. We got into talking about volume settings and he told me
that his VO volume in the rotor is set to 80 and his ring sound volume
is set to 33. And he has the box unchecked to select ringer volume with
buttons. He says that with these volume settings that he can hear his
notifications really well with the volume buttons on the side turned
down where the speech is low enough for him to hear but not those around
him. If I did this same adjustment with my iPhone 7 and you could
faintly hear notifications sounds when they came in since notifications
are tied to the media volume while Voice over is turned on. So I'm
wondering if those of you with the 8 can hear your notification sounds
with this volume setup that he has? I have my VO volume set at 5 and
ringer volume set at 23 which has nothing to do with notification
sounds. However mine are still really low when they come in since I keep
my media volume down lower to keep VO from being heard by those around
me. I don't keep the media volume down so low that I have to strain to
hear it, but at a comfortable level where I can hear it when I'm using
the phone. So I'm trying to find out if the 8 works differently than the
7 and how Allen is able to keep VO volume at 80 and keep the entire
neighborhood from hearing his speech?
