[Bug 1016969] Re: daily live cd boots silent in virtualbox

the layout of the pulse audio settings screen has changed a bit now,
they are not presenting as separate devices but connectors on the analog
output device. Same basic problem though, it boots silent. You also
can't get to the indicators using the keyboard to fix it without a mouse
so blind users would require sighted assistance.

  daily live cd boots silent in virtualbox

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  in a virtualbox VM booting the quantal 64 bit daily live CD it boots to ubiquity but there are no drums and ctrl+s to start orca does not start speech (though orca starts)
  clicking on try ubuntu and booting to a desktop allows me to see the pulse audio settings, the two Analog output devices don't work but the LFE devices work fine.

  For users depending on Orca booting to a silent desktop is a critical
