  1. Hello. I would like to state that I do not own any form of sound device (such as speakers head phones) so I cannot listen to these videos. I would appreciate it if you made an online article that I could read or a subtitled video series so that I can “listen” to the video. I know when it comes to computers I’m realy outdated and most people don’t have this problem, but it’s still an issue for me. Please fix this when ever you can. Although I’m sure that this websight is very helpful, I have no choice but to seek help elsewere.

    Regards, Aaron Brinkley.

    • Thanks for the feedback Aaron. It’s unusual to find a computer made in the last couple of decades that didn’t have audio output that you could just connect a pair of headphones to. We did look into subtitling and sign language for all our videos once long ago but unfortunately we just couldn’t get the volunteers and the process would have cost us thousands. If you do need written help, both our Windows 7 and Windows 8 superguides are available on Kindle or as physical books (we don’t support XP any longer, sorry).
