Collect data for Dr. Eddie Harrison's Vox device by shooting creatures with special darts.

Daily: Someone to Talk To is a repeatable daily quest in Fallout 76.


Explore the city of Monongah, which is located north of the Top of the World. Find the large house, and go down to the basement containing a large amount of laboratory equipment. Use Dr. Eddie Harrison's terminal. Select the "Begin Vox Interpreter Data Collection Exercise" entry to begin the quest.

Take the vox interpreter holotape, and load into the Pip-Boy. Find creatures to shoot with the vox syringer by using vox darts (syringer ammo). The three targets will be randomly selected from the following list:

Vox targets
Angler Beaver Brahmin
Cat Deathclaw Fox
Mega sloth Mole rat Opossum
Rabbit Radrat Radstag
Radtoad Squirrel Wild mongrel
Wolf Yao guai

Locations where the animals could be found will be marked on the map, but there is a strong chance that the animals may not spawn once in the vicinity of the suggested area, so a good option is to either wait for them to appear, switch to another server in the hopes of getting better targets that are easier to find, or trying another location where the target animals are easier to find, especially if a player has memorized where certain animals often spawn if the initial marked area is unavailable at the moment.

Once all three targets have been tested, return to the basement, place the vox syringer back in the metal box where it was removed from earlier, which usually still has some syringer ammo stored in it, and load the collected data into the terminal to complete the quest.

Investigate the HouseThere's something peculiar about this house. I have a feeling that if I do some digging and find a terminal, I might be able to find something interesting.
Note: first time only
Begin Vox Interpreter Data Collection ExerciseThe Vox data from last time should be finished processing. I should return and run the Vox interpreter data collection exercise again.
A scientist named Dr. Harrison seems to have developed a method for interpreting animal noises into human speech. He left instructions I can follow in order to test out his work, and help to improve upon it by gathering more data.
Note: first time only
Load the Vox Interpreter Holotape Into Pip-BoyDr. Eddie Harrison was working on a device that would let him interpret animal sounds into a common language so he could "talk" with them. I should load the Vox Interpreter holotape and grab the Vox Syringer to get started.
Take the Vox Syringer
Shoot Target with a Vox Dart: (random target 1)I need to find the specified creatures and shoot them with the Vox Syringer. Once the transmission starts, I need to keep the creature alive and within range for enough time to collect sufficient data.

This quest was originally named "Voices", and is still referred to as such in the challenge for completing each daily quest once.
