If you have a reasonable Internet connection, you can make audio calls via a free program called Skype.

When you are online, Skype sits in the bottom of your screen and lets you know who else is online as part of the Skype network. If you want to call someone, you just double click on their name and their computer “rings”. They click the Skype phone button and you are talking to someone else using your computer speakers and microphone.
Alternatively you can use instant chat to share text.
You can even call land line phones for a fee. This can be a lot less than your normal phone lines, but the quality varies.

We have used it a number of times to call Lana’s sister in Australia, as well as some of David’s clients in Australia and around the US.
