MK4000 Scanner Volume

I have set the Volume using EMML, Javascript, and the meta tag for volume.

I even set Control Panel sound levels.  I still get the ear splitting MK4000 scan beep. 

What is the best way to control scanner volume short of stuffing cotton and superglue in the speaker?

Config.XML===================

Config.XML

========================

Changing frequency works.

Changing duration works.

Changing volume does nothing.... wait .... ran it up to 3  ... GEEZ!  The PAIN!

Apparently a volume of 1 is still darn loud.  0 is silent.

Changing volume works in Config.XML.

If someone needs to have a lesser volume on an MK4000, lowering the frequency and duration is the technique.

Carl ~ apparently with sensitive hearing to the default frequency ...

Tried the Config.xml.  Even

Tried the Config.xml.  Even rebooted.  No change in beep volume.

       <Sound>

        <DecodeVolume             value="1"/>

        <DecodeFrequency        value="0xBB8"/>

        <InvalidDecodeFrequency value="0x9C4"/>

        <DecodeDuration           value="250"/>

        <ScanDecodeWav          value=""/>

        <ScanInvalidWav             value=""/>

        <ImagerCaptureWav       value=""/>

      </Sound>

Also tried javascript - No change in beep volume.

    function doSoftScan()

    {

        notification.setBeeperVolume=0;

        notification.setBeeperFrequency = 1500;

        scanner.start();

      }

Why is it the little things that make one consider being a greeter at WalMart?

I have more time invested with beeps than I did courting my wife.  Sheesh.
