The V196WL bd does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the HP s1935a (£100.69), the iiyama B1980SD (£143.54), or the Asus VS207T-P (£97.02) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
