I am trying to find a way for my phone to output sound to both the phone's jack and to the phone's speakers simultaneously. Currently, plugging something into the jack turns off the speakers.
The reason I'm asking is because I'm hard of hearing and need the speakers so I can hold the phone up to webcaptioner.com to create automatic captions, while using the jack to plug the sound into my hearing aids.
I have a Samsung Galaxy (samsung-sgh-I747) using Android version 4.4.2.
What I have tried: I looked on the phone under "sound" and "accessibility" - nothing there works.
I also tried plugging the phone directly into the computer to see if this could make really clear captions, but the computer didn't register the incoming sound. I tried turning on "Samsung captions" - but no captions appear anywhere.
I also found that it seems you need an app or a splitter - https://www.quora.com/How-can-you-use-your-headphones-and-speaker-at-the-same-time-for-a-mobile - I'm hoping there can be another solution.
