Windows 7: How find web site that is making voice sounds when site not in focus

How find web site that is making voice sounds when site not in focus

I might have 50 web site tabs and am looking at one of them. All of a sudden, another web site starts with a voice and I can't determine which tab it's on. Trying to listen to two sites (or more) is ridiculous. How can I find the offending web site?

Also, some web sites will present and audio "story" which cannot be paused or stopped (unless you close the page). Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you.......

Open Volume Mixer (right click Volume icon in notification area) and mute the whichever you want. The pages with sound will have green volume bar moving up and down.

That, I believe, is related to the browser I'm using. But, what happens if I'm trying to watch a site on the same browser?

With IE at least, each page that outputs sound should have its own separate setting. You won't see additional IE icons or settings if no sound is played. Try with youtube to see what I mean.

Thanks for the site - but there's nothing there to help me with Firefox. Couldn't find Audio Controller and the other add-on only works for Firefox up to version 22. I have verios 39.

Some solutions that worked for others, see if good for you:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...ddon/mute-tab/
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/muter/ to mute everything (I would rather use Volume Mixer though)

Edit: Good news to you by the way - Firefox is getting audio indicators to show noisy tabs, and will let you mute them | VentureBeat | Dev | by Emil Protalinski
