Chapter 30. Windows Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices

Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices

We've come a long way since the days when the only sounds you could hear on a PC were beeps from the tiny little speaker inside the case. Now, PCs can talk to you and play music and movies. Your PC's CD drive isn't just for reading data: It can also play audio CDs (though you need to add better speakers to hear them properly). If you have a DVD drive you can watch—and listen to—full-length movies.

In the Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices area of the control panel, you can control many aspects of your PC's sound, from the volume to the default playback and recording devices. (You shouldn't have to mess with this last one, unless there is a problem with your sound system. If that's the case, seek help from an experienced user.)
