It's a known issue to me on a personal level. Been going on so long
that... I don't know. It consciously crossed my mind that it is an
accessibility issue. All I can do is apologize for not raising it
sooner myself because invasive issues here at the house keep throwing
everything else on a back burner. *sigh*

Mine is Sid Unstable along with:

Linux 4.7.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.7.2-1 (2016-08-28) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Since I'm on Sid, that played a part in tolerating the annoyance as
long as I have, too....

Not even sure what I'm using for audio because it has been so long
since I tried to "fix" those kinds of issues on this setup. Well,
might have had a lifting of cognitive clouds for a second. Just
thought to look under my Applications menu. I see Audio Mixer and
PulseAudio Volume Control under "Multimedia".

As a last step, I remembered there was a related helpful terminal
command line I could run so I opened Audio Mixer then ran "ps -aux"
(as regular user). It showed me I have xfce4-mixer running as that
generically named "Audio Mixer" under the Applications menu.
