How to Use Skype Without a Microphone

How to Use Skype Without a Microphone. You can use Skype if you don't have a microphone or headset, but you can not do any voice chat. Instead, you can use Skype as an "instant messenger" (typing chat) to chat with friends and family from around the world. (You may still be able to hear them using Skype if you have computer speakers or regular earphones.) Instant messaging with Skype is free to use.
