Can someone please point me to some info on the above and whether you can speak to other PC users and whether the audio is as good as a phone call. Thanks David

click here - to download.

You can use this program to type, talk and even see the other person. The quality is even better than phone if you have a fast internet connection. Another advantage is that it is FREE! You only pay for internet costs.

A great free program for one-to-one PC chats regardless of your chat program is click here Give it a go.

Worldwide access to thousands of people on the Skype network.... You'll love it.

You will need a Headset with built in mircophone. Used it for months and other than making dozens of freinds, you can chat to your neighbour, friends down the road, friends abroad, all for FREE and with telephone sound quaility.. Best I've ever come across. Go for it. EOS.

Thanks for your replies. I will check out your replies above tomorrow.

I should have said I use W98SE and access the net by dial up.

Does messenger come on the W98SE install CD.

Does it work well on dial up?

Thanks David

MS Messenger - Can you speak (not type a message) to another user? Thanks David

yes if you have a mic and a full wave audio card at least that is what i yhink it is called otherwise it is like the old transatlantic phone calls where you had to wait for the other party to stop talking.

Thanks for your reply. I have a mic and transmitter. Have you actually tried speaking to another user, how do you call them up? Thanks David
