Q&A

Q1:I don't like using my mic and speakers or a headset to have a conference; I feel like a taxi dispatcher. Is there any way I can make voice conferencing more like a phone call?
A1: Several companies have been working on that. You may have seen ads for devices that look just like telephones, but are really just cleverly designed mics and speakers. You plug these "phones" into your sound card so you can have a more phone-like experience.

Although these devices can be handy or fun, they still can't fix the fact that an Internet conference is not as clear as a regular telephone call. That problem has more to do with the Internet's limitations than with the device you speak into.
