Try some of these.... to fix your problem posted to the list...

1. Reduce the maximum transmission speed to minimum eg. 10kps --- ditto
frames per second.
2. Use the the deltamod for sound..16kbs..
3. The supra modems default to 14.4 if lines are dodgy etc... so you may
have a 28.8 modem but are only transmitting at 14.4. Check the modem is
actually transmitting and receiving at the higher speed. Get ISDN if you
can ;-).....
4. Set the audio sampling to 100ms.
5. Connect directly to your granddaughter rather than going through a
6. Pause the picture before talking.. or use the talk window to type messages.

Hope these suggestions help.
