I been messing with it a bit. When trying to listen to WBUR,
it seems random, sometimes works, usually not. Websites that
tell you how to pronounce words, I can hear them. Program vlc
with a *.mp4, I can hear. I don't know how to test the microphone.

Sorry, I stumbled into the text chat, but did not see the reply,
probably not because anything was wrong, but because I was busy
trying to get the sound working and logged in and out repeatedly
without looking for text.

I don't know.
The URL is still sitting there. Diane logged in with a MS computer
and I with my Linux. We could see each other, mostly, but no sound.

No. Your stream worked fine.
I'm not so sure. I'm starting to suspect the firewall. I have a lot
of blocked IP addresses that have accumulated over the years. I don't
know what they are nor recall what they did to offend me years ago.
On the other hand, when I start jit.si it has a button that
says "Join Meeting", when I click it, it pops up another button
that says "Join without sound", no other choice, so I choose that.
Maybe it can't find the microphone, so it turns off the loudspeaker?
But when it starts up it has a message at the bottom that says:
"It sounds like your microphone is working". The Multimedia==>
Pulseaudio==>Input device has a jumping blue line that reacts to
sounds I make, so I know there is a microphone in there somewhere.
What Debian version are you running? What web browser
kwright@fcs22:~$ uname -a

Maybe I'll see you next time, but busy websites and video seem to make
it overheat even when they sort-of work. I'm a black-and-white
Greek subscript kind of guy. If it weren't for the virus I would
be happy with TeX, Scheme, and email; I wouldn't be trying to turn my
good computer into a bad television.
