I have Windows 10 on HP Envy laptop. We play recordings on the laptop in a small group meeting using the built-in speakers on the laptop, and it works very well. However we have one
person who is very deaf, and his hearing aids are inadequate. Is there any way we can have the recording playing through the speakers, and the earphone socket at the same time, so that the deaf person could be connected up with earphones to the output. Allan

Unless there is some option in the Windows audio control panel to allow simultaneous operation, the only way I can think of doing what you want would be to use a Y headphone splitter cable coming out of the laptop and a small pair of amplified speakers running off of one of the outputs and the headphones off the other output. You would use the laptop's volume control for a comfortable listening level on the headphones. Hopefully, it won't be too low to properly drive the speakers to your desired level.

Thank you for this. I will use a splitter. Allan
