I can see there is a sound alert on / off, and it might be me just not understanding how to configure this correctly.

I want to be able to have an alarm when specific words are being said in the channel, and that you can specify the .au or .wav file that is played (a java client I was using uses .au)
So that in the config you can specify
Keyword 1 = "keyword1", "/snd/bell.au"
Keyword 2 = "keyword2", "/snd/bell2.au"

When someone says "keyword1" bell.au is played to anyone using this chat client.

I know it will only be specific situations this would be applicable. Stand alone IRC clients support this, but then of course you setup your IRC client whilst here you make everyone listen for the same key word. (Something that is perfect for what I need.)

Is there still a need for it, Ronny?

I think it's a better idea to have a different sound to do when a member calls your name on the chat. That many people will probably like it. Maybe it's an idea.
