How can I tell if the server I am playing on has all talk turned on?

    I think you mean all-talk. – jw013 Jun 24 '13 at 18:49

Unfortunately, there isn't a simple client-side console command to check whether or not all-talk is enabled.

There are less efficient giveaways, including:

  1. You can hear players on the other team speak.
  2. You see coloured speech bubbles above your teammates heads when they talk. (It will be a white bubble with a yellow ! if alltalk is disabled.)
  3. Ask in server.
  4. The server browser adds an alltalk flag to any servers with alltalk enabled. (Although server administrators can remove this tag by force, so it's not 100%)
