My computer has speakers, as you can see in the comic. But I almost never turn them on. I hate computers making noises.

I'll turn them on to listen to a YouTube video or something where I actually want to hear the audio content, but otherwise they stay resolutely off.

My computer at work doesn't even have speakers, so I can't even do that. I cannot listen to anything on my work computer. I've never had a problem because of this.

I also have an old laptop which I put Linux on and use to do some random stuff - mostly writing things.

One day recently I had it plugged into a network and, for some reason, decided to check out some web page. I was shocked to hear it start playing some music! The web site apparently had embedded sound in it. I think it's the first time I've ever come across that. I didn't even realise web sites could have sound in them! (Well, apart from YouTube and such.)
