can't hear my flex 1500 in my laptop speakers

Can anybody tell me why can't I hear my 1500 in my laptop speakers? Works great with headphones plugged into the 1500

    Not the way it was designed, radio audio is only available from the front headphone jack as line level. You can either run a physical stereo connection from the headphone jack to your line in on the laptop, or you jimmy the VAC option button using Soundmapper as output and enable the VAC button. Downside is this mono audio, volume slider will not be able to control audio level, and squelch will not function. This last option is not recommended by Flex. Enjoy the radio, Dudley

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
