The face-to-face communication opportunity provided through video conferencing is also being explored, and in some cases used by the professional community to augment services and to extend services to person for whom distance or disability makes frequent in-person opportunities difficult.
You can dramatically increase the amount of time talking every day, and in a positive environment. Anyone of you will probably remember some of the first times when you actually heard someone else stutter, be it in school, on the bus or whatever. I myself am not bothered very much anymore by hearing other people stutter nowadays, so I guess I'm less embarrassed finding myself in that same spot. This is something everyone needs I think, even non-stutterers. Let me add that there's no good reason why you should voice-chat only with other people who stutter.
It is recommended that you use a headset (not that much more than a mic) because using your machine's sound output generates an awful lot of feedback, and it tends to be impossible to have a decent conversation when even just a couple of chatters generate feedback, cause it bounces from one to another, and then doubles !! Also be aware that the latest skype version can only host up to 10 people at once. a fast dialup modem or any broadband connection will suffice.
