Hello there, my friend just rang me as she has a probllem with her skype connection. She says that her friends cannot hear her, but she can hear them on skype...she just has 2 speakers attached to her PC, but when she does the skype test call she DOES NOT hear her own voice, but she has to speakers connectd, so why cant they hear her?? or does she need a mic?? She has a windows xp desktop

Yes the speakers will work, so that she can hear her contacts, but she will need a mic so her contacts can hear her.

Plenty here to choose from, with built-in mic.

She will of course then be able to let her contacts see her as well as hear her - known as Video-Chats.
