    I not really sure what Cortana is designed to do.
    When I tick on it all I get is some pictures of people that I really don't want to know anything about.
    I don't use cell phones so I'm somewhat lost.

    What I have gathered it's some sort of talking program on phones.

    Are you at all familiar with Siri on the iPhone? Cortana is like a version of Siri that is actually useful.

    I'm not familiar with any kind of cell phone. I have used a friends phone about 5 times.
    What ever it does if it's useful I will like it.
    Does one have to get a mic for a desktop to talk to this Cortana?

    Yes. You'll need a mic. Cortana is a digital assistant. She'll enter items in your calendar, find the nearest restaurant, call, text, or open an email to someone, etc. all with voice commands. There's a complimentary app to perform PC/device power commands. It's a great feature.

    Thanks for the information.
    Another question.
    If I get a mic will my system speakers work or will I need a head set?

    You're welcome. :)

    I would think that it would work through the speakers or headphones. I use one or the other on my Lumia.
