Hi Barbara

I use it for both JAWS and  music.  I tried hooking it up to my hi-fi
system at the weekend, just to see if there was any background noise.  I
found the quality through my system to be very good indeed.  On the
speakers, JAWS is a bit tinny, and so is music, but you would expect
that from such small speakers on such a neat device.  But it isn't any
worse than listening to TALKS or music through a mobile phone's

I'd be more than happy to listen to an audio book, music or work with my
screen reader using headphones on the NC10 while travelling.

Go for it!

Subject: [access-uk] Samsung NC10

Hi All
I have newly subscribed to this list, though I think I know many current
users from other lists.
I have caught up on the netbook thread and am reading some very good
reviews of the Samsung NC10. I am considering buying a netbook and was
wondering if the JAWS or Window Eyes users out there could tell me what
the audio quality is like on this device? I've read excellent reviews at
Play.com, but none of them mention audio. I guess unless you are using
it to play music, your average user isn't all that bothered about sound
quality. However, there's nothing worse than listening to a screen
reader through inferior, quiet or tiny speakers.
So I'd read any feedback on the audio with great interest.
