I have an old Compaq FS740 monitor with built in mic and no puppy I've tried seems be able to recognize the mic.

I've tried recording and nothing happens.

Is there a workaround for this? Drivers perhaps?

If you are using FATDOG/lightHouse (64bit Pups) here is a tool just posted today that may be useful. in the "Adventures of Microphones"

Hope this helps

Here is a test procedure (which you may have already tried.)

1. Open a terminal and type: alsamixer.

2. Press the Tab key to select the [Capture] devices.

3. Use the Right-arrow key to see all the Capture devices.

4. Use the Up-arrow key to increase the volume. Press M if they need unmuting.

5. Also look under Playback for Mic devices.

6. Press Esc to quit.

7. Type: arecord out.wav

8. Talk into the mic. Press Cntrl-C to quit.

9. Type: aplay out.wav

Yeah none of that worked.

Under mic in alsamixer, no devices were found.

Is there a way to get the embedded mic recognized?
