Perennial issue with site permissions for usb not being honored by Brave

Currently I have

Brave is up to date


Version 1.62.153 Chromium: 121.0.6167.85 (Official Build) (64-bit)

But I have had the same issue for about 18 months… Yeah, I finally decided to create an account and post.

The trouble is with gvoice. usb earphones - neither sound nor mic - do not work consistently.

Usually they just do not work. Sometimes they work for 3-6 minutes and they usb is cut off.

The gvoice settings correctly show the usb earphones for all 3 options - sound, mic and ring.

The site permissions show as Default Ask - something like that.

It is win 10 with all patches and updates to realtek driver installed.

Is it a true bug or do I need to change something and it will work?

The same earphones work fine with whatsapp and desktop based apps. The issue is with the browser-based apps.
