I have recently got Steam (a gaming platform)to work with WINE but it wont see my microphone under setting. I know the microphone works I have used it for internet chat rooms. I there a way to get WINE to see that I have a mic?

Coincidently, I just installed steam on one of my laptops to see how it worked. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 on the laptop and steam installed without any problems. I tried one freebee game (Dotar2 I think) and everything seemed to work ok. I'm no gamer so I can't say anything about the fine points but as far as I can tell there is no need to run Wine. Just install steam.

You probably need a .asoundrc to tell it which microphone to use. Or have and use pulseaudio to make that determination. A lot of devices have multiple soundcards now. Your motherboard, your video card, your webcam, and probably something else USB for a mic that doesn't suck.

$ cat /proc/asound/cards

To determine which cards you have and the index value for the one you want to use. Note that this value can change between reboots. Unless you specifically index your cards.

alsa only for an index value of 1 for ~/.asoundrc:
defaults.ctl.card 1
defaults.pcm.card 1
defaults.pcm.device 0
If you don't have a .asoundrc, then the default card index that gets used is 0.

pulse audio for ~/.asoundrc:
pcm.pulse {  type pulse  }
ctl.pulse {  type pulse  }
pcm.!default {  type pulse  }
ctl.!default {  type pulse  }
And pavucontrol to select your card(s).
