The Skype’s the limit

Skype announced that they’re working with LG and Panasonic to bring VoIP capabilities to selected TV models…the same day that we got an email from a woman looking for a Skype access strategy for her older parents overseas, who find computers too complex. Nothing like well-timed idea convergence.

    Note also that Skype (at least the computer version) has video and text as well as voice, so it’s good for deaf and hard of hearing users. The audio quality is much better than a regular POTS line or cell phone, although there is often some echo or breakup. Having high quality audio on an upscale TV instead of tinny PC speakers should make the experience that much more accommodating.
