I don't have access to the server. However, this problem is not specific
to asterisk. I hit this will all voicemail and conf bridge systems.

It seems like if there is any incoming audio at all, blink isn't
listening to the keyboard for numbers.

Even when I click on the specific audio session in the "Audio Sessions"
side window to put focus back, it still doesn't listen to keyboard

That's what I was assuming.

Hence my contention that blink mostly never seems to be listening to the
keyboard other than in a very small specific window of time.
