Is there a way to record and play out of a free standing speaker at the sametime? Or use a mic to send sound to a speaker without recording?
In Audacity, try Edit > Preferences > Recording > Software playthrough of input
In Windows 10 you can run “mmsys.cpl”, then Recording > “your microphone” > Properties > Listen > Listen to this device. I’m not sure if this works with Windows 8.

What’s the application? Why do you need that?

That may give you computer echo, not real-time sound. That’s also the reason you can’t listen to the computer when you overdub or perform sound-on-sound music.
It rings alarm bells when someone posts they need a speaker and a microphone running in the same performance. That’s not easy. Quality control for a voice recording is almost always done with headphones.
Thanks for replies.
I’m trying to get a better idea of what the mic and/or settings on the app is actually picking up. I’ve recorded up to 5 minutes at a time and didn’t get what I wanted. For now I want to put a wireless speaker in another room and go listen. Since I eventually want to present the recording to others it’s essential I get something they hear.

For a number of reasons, Audacity can’t be used for law enforcement, surveillance, or conflict resolution.
Security systems can do that.
