Hello Henge Staff!

It seems that the option for Internal Audio disappears when the computer is docked and only the Headphones option is displayed ( http://screencast.com/t/jUID20L3AwAI ). I’m using a Late 2013 15" Retina and OS X 10.11.5. Any advice on how to get this to work would be awesome.

Thanks,

Devin

Please inform Matt that OS X is not pronounced as three letters, but as two letters and a roman numeral ten. It should be pronounced “OS 10,” since it follows Systems 1 through 7.1 and OS 7.5 through 9.2.

To dispel the usual reply of “Well, that’s just how you say it and I prefer to say it MY way,” I perform the following demonstration…

1. In the Terminal app in Applications/Utilities, type “say O”. The computer will speak the letter O.
2. Then type “say S”. The computer will speak the letter S.
3. Next type “say X.” The computer will speak the letter X.
4. Finally, type “say OS X”. The computer will speak “OS Ten.”

This exercise shows us that the speech software recognizes the letters individually, but was SPECIFICALLY coded to say OS X a certain way, which happens to be the official way.

Or just google ANY Apple keynote and listen to Steve say it.

With that, thank you for enduring my silly rant.
