    External microphone but audio over laptop speakers - possible?

    Hi,

    I have an external microphone connected to my laptop but I cannot hear the recording as long as the microphone is plugged it.

    Is it possible to have the microphone plugged in and listen to the audio over the laptop speakers?

    Thanks.

    P.S: All drivers are up to date and the laptop has only one slot to connect a 3.5mm jack.

    Lumia 930 microphone doesn't work on speaker

    Hi, I have same issue on Lumia 930, have tried the various steps proposed by Microsoft, have also tried updating software to Windows 10 but to no avail. While a number of posts on this topic suggest it is likely to be a hardware bug, my symptoms seem to
    indicate software:

    • while using the phone normally (not on speaker) the microphones work perfectly. IE microphones 1 and 2 at the bottom of the phone appear to be working 100%
    • while using the phone on speaker, microphones 1 and 2 (see http://forums.windowscentral.com/nokia-lumia-930/328279-2.htm for good photos of microphone locations) seem to be completely off
    • while using phone on speaker, microphones 3 and 4 at the top of the phone seem to work reasonably as long as I'm close to the phone. Not as well as they should on a speakerphone though.
    • microphone on headset works fine
    This does look to be a very widespread issue ... any updates from Microsoft?

    thanks
