Screensharing Windows computer audio from a speaker

By default, patients can only hear audio from your microphone, not from audio being played from your computer during screen share. There is a way to mix your microphone and application sound so you can share the audio on a doxy.me call. 

Computer audio listening is not available on a Mac.
