Output devices are things we use to get information OUT of a computer.
Here are some examples of output devices.
|Monitor - A monitor is the screen on which words, numbers, and graphics can be seem. The monitor is the most common output device.||
|Compact Disk - Some compact
disks can be used to put information on. This is called burning information
to a CD.
NOTE: A CD can also be an input device.
|Printer - A printer prints whatever is on the monitor onto paper. Printers can print words, numbers, or pictures.||
|Speaker - A speaker gives you sound output from your computer. Some speakers are built into the computer and some are separate.||
|Disk Drives - A disk drive is used to record information from the computer onto a floppy disk or CD.||
|Floppy Disk - A floppy disk is used to record information on. The information is stored on the floppy disk and can be used later or used on another computer.||
|Headphones - Headphones give sound output from the computer. They are similar to speakers, except they are worn on the ears so only one person can hear the output at a time.||
