I am interested in determining the actual procedure for
voice communication per the Internet; of actually doing it.
I cannot do this by myself. I am wanting details of
interest from any other members of HUMBUG.
So far, I have installed a sound card and also a headset
with mic and headphones, which works well within themselves.
I have also determined that the program "Speak Freely"
would seem to fit the bill. It is free. Also, since there are
many fools who support Bill Gates, there is a Windows version,
which will communicate well with the Linux version. There may
be other programs that are better, but I want to have
something working to start with.
I envisage that first, we have it working across our own digital
cabling, then try to communicate with someone (previously arranged) by
dial-up modem to us with our digital cable. Then, maybe, dial up modem to
dial up modem.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.
