    I have Parkinson's disease so I use voice recognition software.

    The problem occurs when I want to edit my dictation and I want to play back my words. It seems there is a speaker buried deep in the computer. The volume on that speaker is so low as to be almost useless.

    I would like either to adjust that volume or direct the audio through my normal speakers.

    I'm ignorant of computer terminology so I may have viewed the settings but not recognized them.

    Your guidance will certainly be appreciated.

    Thank you

    This probably should be in the hardware forum, but here goes. ;)

    I am guessing you do not have the speakers plugged in if you are not hearing anything through them. When you plug in the speakers it will usually stop using the internal speaker. You want to plug your speakers into a like colored port on the back of the PC coming out of your sound card. It will have lots of tiny holes in it like you would plug a headset into. If it is not the same color then it will probably show you an arrow pointing out from the center.
