hmm... mine allows the volume to be adjusted, but it has no effect
while the newt is actually speaking. It changes the NEXT time that
something is said. Also, if you're using Talking Alarms, that has an
override that will maximize the volume for speech, overriding the system
volume, if not checked.

    will have redundant control panels and power supplies. For the same reason 
    I will always carry at least two fully loaded weapons at all times.
