[ddots-l] Re: Skype. Was: Am I in over my head?

That's why I think that FTP or something similar would be better.
Audio tips is a good option, but you have to register for it.
There rooms are almost always empty.
What a waist, huh?
You could get up to 50 people in to these rooms at a time!
It's a total shame that we have these services for free, and don't take advantage of them!

Actually it's five. From the Skype web site:
Can I use Skype to make 3-way or conference calls?
Yes you can! Skype allows you to speak with up to 4 other people at the same time!


The keywords being "four other people." Including your self, that would be a total of five.

Aaron Cannon

Skype works very well.  JAWS users, check out the free Skype scripts at:
http://www.panix.com/~ccn/projects/jfw/skype.php#download

Once we get past some summer deadlines, we at Dancing Dots will be planning
some Skype events for sure. One thing I am not clear on is the maximum
number of people you can include on a Skype conference call. Anybody know?

Come on guys!  Do please change the Subject line when appropriate!

Skype (note the spelling) is what is known as Voice Over Internet Protocol,
or VOIP. Let me try and explain in simple terms.


Skype is software which lets you talk to another Skype user anywhere in the
world absolutely free of charge. For best performance it is best to have
ADSL or Broadband, although it does work with dial-up connections. You can
also call from your PC to a telephone, but you do have to pay for this
service, albeit it at a much cheaper rate in most cases than a normal
telephone call.


All you need is a sound card in your system, speakers, and a microphone,
which I imagine most of us have.

You then need to download and install some software from www.skype.com.

I won't try and explain the installation here, but suffice to say it is
fairly simple.

And for those of you with sighted family and friends, you can now add a web
camera option, so you can be seen while you talk.


As I'm writing this, I can see that here are 1,724,028 people talking on
Skype right now.  At weekends, it gets way over two and a half million.

George.

Hi guys,
I've just been doing some research into whats available to try to learn this
stuff. It seems that there are a couple of places out there. Some of which
take the trade school approach, that is there courses last for 3 or 4
months. The prices aren't that bad either. I didn't bookmark any of them
otherwise I'd have included the links.
I've often been advised to ask arround town to see if you can intern with
local studios.

It occurs to me that it would be a good thing (tm) if
those of us who
are completely bumfuzzled could find mentors. In an
absolutely ideal
world, one would bring one's setup to a mentor and have
him/her help
you get it at least going to the point of being able to
record and
play back. I am finding that the CakeTalking tutorial
will be
fabulously useful once I have achieved this very basic
thing, but
until then, 98% of it isn't doing me much good.

I am lucky. I have someone relatively local who has
volunteered to
help me. I wonder if there's a way to facilitate this
sort of
exchange, with the idea that when we neophytes are
grizzled veterans,
we will bring along some other dewy-eyed novice as we were
brought
along.

In saying this, I in no way wish to lessen the importance
either of
the major efforts put forth by Dancing Dots in writing the
tutorials,
or of this list and those on it who take time to answer
questions.
There are
some things better taught hands on, and for me, this
appears to be one
of them.  Maye it is so for others as well.

As a related question, does anyone know of classes or the
like that
exist to teach this stuff?
