Bug Description

checkbox audio tests ask whether a sound being played can be heard, and if playing back sound recorded from the mic can be heard, but in neither case does checkbox appear to check if the audio is muted. It should be possible to automatically detect if the sound device is muted and unmute it for purposes of testing.

Thanks for the bug report.

We've been planning to update these tests so that they switch to the appropriate device and/or unmute it. I'll use this bug to track the status if the work.
