The mic and speaker are on the back.

This product is NOT compatible with Adobe Digital Editions, which means you can not read books borrowed from the library on it. Furthermore, the website is no longer available, neither is their toll free number. From all attempts I have made, this company is no longer running. Therefore, if you have any problems, you are on your own.
