Can't see any mic level

Hi all,

Using the headphone jack and a cheapo USB soundcard mic input on a Pi 3B.

Levels of both have been set with alsamixer.

I set the default input/output with pactl and checked the setup with

mycroft-start audiotest -l

both record and playback work fine.

When using mycroft-cli, I can’t see anything under “Mic Level”.

I can hear the responses though, if I type questions.

Any ideas?


Does it hear you if you ask questions via voice?

No response via voice.

I have followed all the steps here and I can successfully record and play audio with the testing steps. It just doesn’t seem to work in mycroft itself.
