I have a CHAT section on my forum, and was wondering if a voice ability can be added to that CHAT function. At present conversations must be conducted via text messages. It would be much better if the users could talk and hear, rather than typing everything. Is this possible?

Thanks!

Hi there,

That's not possible with the chat we have, sorry.

If you want to do voice, you could try skype, you can even do video :)

I do use Skype, and it's fine, but would be much better if a member of my forum, without having to depend on someone else having Skype on their computer, etc., and without having to leave the forum, could take a thread subject to CHAT and have a "real" discussion, rather than something like an "IM", which was available many years ago. You'd think, after all this time, chats would actually be chats, not IMs. It is the 21st century after all.
