Windows 7: Change or stop tone for "OK Google" Search

Change or stop tone for "OK Google" Search

OK this is silly but I know you guys like a challenge.

I use "OK Google" in Chrome to do voice search on my Windows 7 desktop. I find it very convenient. Unfortunately I have a "rescued" dog who is skittish and the tone following invoking the command scares her.

I'd like to disable or change the tone and can't find a way.

System sounds are set to "None."

I mute the sound when I remember but eventually I forget and when it goes off she jumps up and flies out of the room.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I just posted her picture in the Chillout Forum "Show Us Your Dogs" if you'd like to see her :)

Show us your dogs!

rename this to .bak "C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\bepbmhgboaologfdajaanbcjmnhjmhfn\\audio\1_short_Open_16_16.wav" If your extesnion name is for some reason different look at this in chrome and it will say what path you need. chrome://voicesearch You have to manually type it in.

Firefox pages "The connection was reset" but loads thru Google search
For about a month now, since going from my "old" FFv27 to FFv37 and now v38.01, certain sites put up a "The connection was reset" page. But, seconds later if I put the site's URL into Google and then click the obvious first search result the page will load fine. So it's not cookies or AdBlock or (I...
