Using a USB headset, I want to hear my voice through computer speakers

I'm using a USB headset and working in TeamSpeak.  People can hear me ok, but I cannot hear my voice through the speakers.  If I do a local test, it works like it should, but as soon as I go with a live connection, it doesn't work anymore.  

I've tried it on two different computers, so I figure there is either something wrong with the headset, or I don't know what I'm doing during the setup.  Probaly the later.  :)

Thanks for the help

I tried doubleclicking the speaker icon and going that route, but it didn't work.
I knew about the feedback issue, but I was trying to get around it.
