Speech Input does not work, no microphone access in snap

OnlyOffice desktop installed on Ubuntu 22x LTS/ Snap

Started to install and use Speech Input plugin, nothing happened, no voice recognition. My mike working perfectly l have no doubt it is snap related issue

Query the connections:

When I try to add audio-record connection in any kind of form I have this error:

sudo snap connect onlyoffice-desktopeditors:audio-record
error: snap “onlyoffice-desktopeditors” has no plug named “audio-record”

How should I manage this , because onlyoffice-desktopeditors 7.5.1 has no audio-record plug in snap to get connected to audio-record device


Hello @Urbanovits

May I ask did you try other installations of Desktop Editors, for instance, AppImage or flatpak? Do they also have this issue?


I did all tests, same result. So I have to say it is a BUG.
Regarding to SNAP it is clearly pointing out package issues, because no plug exists to audio-record.
RPM or either appimage less restrictive, but no audio in or out. Speech to text OR text to speech does not work.

Sad to say that.

Thank you for valuable information. We are analyzing the issue, once I get any news I’ll let you know.

Thank you so much .
Looking forward upcoming solution
