Subject: [Athen] Smart Pen audio input from computer?

Hi all,
Given the move to remote classes and students still wanting to use their Smart Pens, is there anyway to capture the audio output from a Zoom session on the computer into the headphone port on the LiveScribe Echo pen?
Scenario -- when the student is listening to the Zoom session with headphones because they are in a shared or noisy environment.
I've been trying to use a patch audio cable from speaker out to the headphone port on the pen, but all I hear on playback is the sound of the pen moving on the paper.

Has anyone found a successful hack for this? For either the single audio port on Mac and newer PC's, or for a mic-in, and speaker-out option.

Thanks so much!
