Google Hangouts works it's more choppy at times then Skype but much
better sounding and has propper echo cancelation. I've already
switched. RIP Pre Microbloat Skype.

I'm really not sure why everyone is hating on skype. Stereo audio is great
and all in recordings. When talking, it's just a frustrating distraction.
I just want to talk.

Team talk is nice, but who in the sighted world uses it? Nobody that I
know of, so that's a serious limitation for me.

Think skype is bad for screen readers? Try out discord. Tons of unlabeled

Speaking of audio issues. Team talk has horrific issues if one is using
speakers and soundcard does not support echo cancelation or noise
suppression, both of which make the audio quality deteriorate so bad you
might as well use another service and save your bandwidth, too. For
talking, skype handles it wonderfully in comparison and also does a ton
better if your internet isn't the greatest.

It is still the king of multi platform, mainstream, and screen reader
accessible voice communication. Google is kind of there but I know very
few who use it. Team speak is really nice too, supports stereo audio and
blows the doors off team talk every which way. I know a few people who use
it, but not many. I think whatsapp also supports voice calling. I have
never tried it before but would be curious if you could be in calls on the

Just my thoughts, for what it's worth.

I'm not exactly a fan of the new version of skype. If I can figure
out how to invite multiple people to a skype call, that would be
great. However, I can use this new version of skype ok. Granted, I
don't like it as well as 7.4, but I can use it.

What ever happened to Microsoft Net Meeting?
I used to use that on days of dial-up and Windows 98.

I used GW Connect for a while, but now, even the patch doesn't seem to
I installed it on one of my machines a few nights ago, but it wouldn't
let me see my contacts. This is truly sad, as it was great software.
don't know why Microsoft is forcing everyone to use their software,
especially when it's not even fully accessible!
Usually, I use S Portable, which is a portable version of regular Skype

I remember correctly. Granted, I don't really like the interface there
either, especially as I have to use Task Manager to close the program,
at least it's better than the one that my friend has on his laptop! I
it and got a headache! Here is the link to S Portable.

Personally, I liked MSN/Windows Live Messenger better than all of the

sorts of
unnecessary features! Now, I must find an accessible alternative to
