Description

I have hearing problems and the ability to turn the volume up more than 100% through sound settings has gone since 4.0 which means it became so difficult to work on anything with audio.

Please bring it back or add this option in accessibility.

At least on sid, this can be fixed by setting the org.gnome.desktop.sound allow-volume-above-100-percent dconf setting to true. I did not test this on Tails 4.x.

I've put this on the FT's plate as this is a regression compared to 3.x and it can make Tails much harder to use for some of our users.
