Acer Volume and Cursor Size

I do a lot of vid chat, I have a problem with volume depending upon source, anyone know how to increase system volume, beyond keyboard controls?

And I have posted before, anyone know how to increase cursor/pointer size?

merci....

Volume

It appears there is only one answer when you really need more volume- run a jack from the headset plug into the aux jack of an external device. I have a Soundworks table radio and that has become it's primary use....actually provides pretty good sound when I am playing music from Amazon cloud, fyi

i was and will use a head set most of the time but there should be SOME sound from the speakers! when i use the keyboard sound keys, no matter what key, it pops up the sound window but it is a pale gray speaker with an x...no matter what key, with a bar fram, with no bar.

Apologies for the necro!

I've been searching for these solutions for our Acer C720, hope this updates the thread for others looking for the same.

afaik the volume control range is what you get - it's kinda OK for our needs, but would be better louder. Putting it on a perforated surface (mesh tray or table) seems to help ours, slightly.

The cursor is still a work in progress. Ours has two sizes - too small and too big!

It's one of the items in the Accessibility Menu :-

Quote:
Turn on accessibility features

Sign in to your Chromebook.

If you're using your Chromebook for the first time, select Accessibility from the Welcome screen when you first turn it on.
Click the status area, where your account picture appears.
Select Settings.

Click Show advanced settings at the bottom of the page.

In the "Accessibility" section, select the boxes next to:

Make the cursor bigger (so it's more visible on the screen)
Turn on high contrast mode (makes the screen easier to read)
Turn on spoken feedback (describes what is happening on the screen)
Turn on sticky keys (allows shortcut keys to be typed in sequence, without pressing modifier keys at the same time)
Turn on the screen magnifier (enlarges items on the screen)
Automatically click when the cursor stops (click without using your mouse)
Turn on the on-screen keyboard (shows a keyboard that can be clicked with a mouse)

After you've turned on accessibility features, you can adjust them from your keyboard:

To turn spoken feedback on or off, press Ctrl + Alt + Z.
To magnify the screen, press Ctrl + Alt + Brightness up or Brightness down (or use Ctrl + Alt + two fingers scrolling up or down on the trackpad). To pan the view around, move your cursor past the edge of the screen.
