Spec suggestions re: audio capabilities

Audio capabilities discovery

I'm unsure if this is something that would be part of WhatWG or W3C spec. Advice would be appreciated to move this forward.

We should be able to know if the computer is currently muting audio or has no working audio outputs. This allows us to programatically deal with the following types of situations:

  • Users has audio based disabilities
  • Users with disabled / no audio hardware
  • User has muted audio output temporarily
