Communication via a PC

  Nenad 12:13 19 May 2003

Is it possible to talk to someone abroad using a PC? If so what equipment is needed to do this and how clear is the speech?
Also would there be additional telephone charges beyond the monthly broadband charge I pay for unlimited internet access?

You can use MS netmeeting which is probably on your PC already.

You wil also need a mic. The better option, to cut down background noise, is a combined mic/headphone set. If you are calling an ordinary landline at the other end you will need to pay the 'local' call charges. If it is solely a PC to PC set up then no other charges apply. If you have a 'full duplex' sound card, which is likely on a later PC then you can talk and hear at he same time.
