I'm having trouble getting a USB sound card to work

Yes.  Just after posting my last note, I noticed this post of yours.

This was working when I first installed Jaunty, then I must have changed
some settings.

There are many choices in the various Sounds settings with which I am not
familiar.  For example, I have many entries for halxxx, along with alsscr,
osscr, etc and pulseaudio (even after I removed pulseaudio).  

I am very confused and don't know where all these drivers get initialized so
can't even edit things by hand.  I'm thinking of re-installing Ubuntu from
scratch since I can't seem to figure out how to get things back to normal.

Is Karmic stable enough to play with if you require a screen reader?  Is it
worth trying that with Orca and braille support?

Hi, I got a USB soundcard today and ubuntu shows it in the list. But when I
switch to it the sound still comes out of my other soundcard. Have any of
you had this problem in karmic?
