Re: Voice redirection: from mic. to speakers on wheezy laptop [was Mic. does not work...].
Good time of the day, Camaleón.
Thank You for Your time and answer, again!

Yea. But for me to use help - I have to feel need of it - and I didn't
as I thought it is enough - to set high volume. F.e. Master has MM at
its bottom meaning that it is muted or not - why that did not put the
same at the capture control switch?! - So it might be evident even for
me :o) - that it has additional control besides volume.

N -> Now (typo).

I do not like PA. I have only one card (have wiped all I could that was once related to
PulseAudio) - and it is the Intel HDA.
Camaleón, what is the ALSA module line in the base file that loads Your
driver? - I'm going to try to add several additional switches - that
occasionally appeared during turning on the mic. :o)
I try to use my mic. w/ Ekiga - tried to test it w/ its test numbers -
one should echo my speech but I hear nothing - only robot's voice.
Though I see local volume meter changes as I speak - do not know
whither it comes to ekiga side...
