Re: pulseaudio



It does work and it works quite well once you get the .asoundrc file
sorted. This can be a bit tricky. For example, I found that the reason I
couldn't get my soundcard to work was because it was a multi channel card
and you had to use a specific device (in my case device 3) in order for the
dmix plugin to work. Prior to working this out, I defined an 'emacspeak'
device in my asoundrc file and then modified the sources to use that as the
device rather than default. This had been the only way I could get outloud
to work and still be able to play other sound sources. 

What type of sound card do you have? Maybe someone else has a working
.asoundrc file for that type of card?
