I’ve also posted an article Skype vs. Videoconferencing on the LNV wiki which might be of interest:

Thank you for the replies – I figured it was a longshot…

 

I looked over my notes from training a few years back – Scopia looks like the answer…

 

So, if folks would like to connect to the LNV with their PC and webcam, I can send them a link for the client software ?? Or does it auto-download … a little ‘foggy’ on how I can get remote webcam users on LNV using Scopia..

 

Thanks again,

 

Bill Clark

I don’t think you can connect the two…I’ve tried to find ways to do that but haven’t yet found anything. Let me know if you find out otherwise.

Have you tried using Scopia for them to call in from their computers? It works well with LNV.

Does anyone know of a way to get Skype calls to come in through the LNV ?? We have several deaf interviwees who want to use skype to call in, but I believe Skype is proprietary.

 

 

Thanks,
