A global hot key is a key combination associated with a particular window; it allows the user to activate the window from any part of the system.

One global hot key can be used by only one application at a time. In some contexts of use, some of your defined hot keys will not work as expected. It is because the other windows applications which are running at the same time with AV Voice Changer Software 8.0 Diamond take higher priority than AV Voice Changer Software 8.0 Diamond does.
