  • Ventrilo is like skype you have an account and log on and they have their password and log on and talk. It’s great we use it with friends from New Zealand when playing computer games with them and just catching up.

  • Good question – hope someone can answer about Ventrilo and its use – intrigued.

  • We us Skype. Like the prerecorded message feature – kids record message whenever they think of something exciting or important to say. Especially useful accross different time zones.

  • I occasionally use Skype. I’ve never heard of Ventrilo before.
