This question already has an answer here:

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and my monitor has no speakers and the audio won't play out of the headphones I have connected I've tried pulse audio and sound settings. I'm not sure my audio card is being seen.

System settings shows:
bcm2835 ALSA
1 output/1 input
Analog Audio Output

Output tab and pulse only show HDMI output

In system settings, open multimedia.
select audio devices, and output.
set output device to default audio.

sometimes in pulse audio controls, you also have to set headphone, though is should automatically switch.
