Hi Shirley, If he uses Skype, he can have the Web Cam start automatically when a Skype call comes in. All the best Steve _____ From: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of alloy design Sent: Monday 15 September 2008 20:01 To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [access-uk] Web Cams. Hello List, Does anyone know anything about using a web cam when in touch by a phone connection. This is a question asked by my brother. He has a web cam set up on his computer, he wishes to speak to a friend in the Philippines. Apparently she phoned him, the connection came to his computer but he didn't know what key to press to make the connection at this end!... I keep telling him he should get started on the normal e-mails rather than wanting to see someone face to face!... If anyone has any ideas, I would be very grateful. Kind regards, Shirley.
