From my knowledge directly accessing local audio devices like microphones and speakers on your Amazon Linux instance running on EC2 isn't possible. EC2 instances are designed to run in the cloud and are isolated from the physical hardware of the underlying host machine. This isolation provides security and scalability benefits but limits direct hardware access. If you still need to use audio services you can choose some third-party services like Pulse Audio, etc.,
