I would like to confirm that this is indeed working. Thank you very much! Sound barely worked at all before doing this; now it works perfectly. I had Rosetta Stone installed on a different computer that didn't have Pulse Audio, and it ran like a charm in WINE. On this one (the computer with Pulse Audio), there was a 0.5 second burst of sound (I'm assuming the beginning of the sound file) and then nothing else. Running wine with padsp remedies this.
So yeah. I can confirm this method as a way to get around Pulse Audio.
Job well done, kleinlohmi.

The improvement in sound quality is probably statistically insignificant, but it is definitely not worse.

If it's of any interest, when I tried recording my voice in Rosetta Stone, I noticed a slight to noticeable lag at the beginning, causing my recording to start later. I don't know how reliable this is, considering I'm using a different app, but I thought you'd like to know. I now speak with a momentary pause at the beginning of my recordings. I'm not too familiar with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, but perhaps you could start speaking with momentary pauses? :-) (or test the theory out by running windows audio recorder or something)
