Do your AIS sound alerts work?
#1
I cannot get the OpenCPN AIS CPA alarm sound alerts to work. I go to Tools>Options>Ships>AIS Targets then Select Alert Sound and then Test Alert Sound and I hear nothing. I've asked a couple of questions on the OpenCPN forum but am getting nowhere.

Can anyone verify that they do get a sound when they do the above? I've really appreciate it. I am using an external USB speaker and have tried HDMI out put too but nothing. Every other function or application that creates a sound works perfectly, except OpenCPN.

OP 0.17.1, OCPN 4.8.4

Thank you Jim. Did you do any reconfiguration to use the bluetooth speaker rather than the onboard audio jack?

i wanted the onboard uart from the bluetooth chip freed up, so i disabled it in config and use a usb dongle instead .
it worked on the onboard bluetooth before i changed it with no problems.

Thank again Jim. I am clearly going to have to abandon my current USB speaker arrangement.

Could you possibly post the output showing the sound file details?

aplay mysoundfile.wav - v
