WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
Once you have downloaded the software (www.Skype.com) all you need is a microphone (or headset), and a web camera.
Skype will automatically detect these devices, and you will not need to install anything further. Microphones & web cameras can be purchased from many retailers at very low cost. (Often less than $20)
OKAY- I have all my equipment, now what?
The first time you open your skype program, you will be asked to register a new username & password. Most commonly, users make their skype name a variation of thier real name, or email address that is easily remembered. After you have done this, you are ready to make a call.
