Thank you David, I assume this has the jaws scripts and Skypt talking and 
everything in it I will need to talk with Skypt in the download? I also have to 
get headphones or earphones, do you have any advice on which one would be the 
best type and where I could find it with abuilt-in microphone in them? Thanks, 
Pat

  Thanks, tht helps a lot, however, where do I get the headphones with the 
built-in mike? Also I don't think a lot of people like to type, they had just 
rather talk, if possible, personally, typing is fine for me, but talking would 
be better really.. Do you just download the software or do you have to go 
purchase it on the shelf? I would appreciate any advice you can give me jon how 
to get started using Skype, I run Jaws, version 10 right now.. Thanks, Pat

    Hi Pat. You don't need to have a webcam to use Skype. You can even use it 
without a microphone and just type to each other. However, most people use 
skype for talking to each other rather than typing in my experience. I found a 
piece of software called skypetalking which works with a number of screen 
readers. It reads out information like what people type to you or their status 
when they go online or offline. I use a headset which has headphones and a 
microphone built in. You can also just get a microphone but be aware of the 
possibility of feedback and choose its position to be far enough away from the 
speakers to avoid that. I've never had Vista but presume skype would behave 
like it does on Windows XP or Windows 7. Hope that helps a little.
