Can I Convert My Computer Jack Speakers to USB?

Most computer speakers directly connect to an audio-out connection port. This is either located at the rear of a desktop computer or on the side of a laptop. However, if you are already using the lone audio-out port, you may want to convert the current computer-jack speakers into a USB connection. This is done with the help of an audio-out-to-USB connection adaptor.

    Connect the speakers to a power outlet, and turn the speakers on.
