Audio goes to speakers not headphones

Using Babble language app with a USB headset. Mic works, but audio goes to speakers rather than headset. Can’t find a setting in Brave and Firefox works fine. Windows 10 desktop. Playing music on desktop works as well.

greetings, curious friend

i hope you are using windows, otherwise i would wonder how linux could serve an apt user so poorly…

in windows 10, going to the following location usually can resolve most sound postrouting issues:
Settings **NOT Control Panel > System > Sound > scroll to bottom > advanced sound options > app volume / device preferences

you can also check in control panel the system defaults and status of available audio devices:
Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound
this will open the sound configuration panel. here i would recommend checking which devices are default for your inputs and outputs.

hope this helps

(btw not +1 on this bc most likely not a browser issue, hasn’t been reported elsewhere…)

Interesting. When one opens Firefox this 'Advanced" area changes under apps to add a FF setting - which includes the headset. Neither Brave or IE do that. Only System Sounds is listed.

If I open Brave and put some terrible music from Youtube on and then start Babble sound is sex correctly to headset. Obviously and unacceptable solution, but we are making progress. THANKS.
