If CU-SeeMe does not find a supported digitizer (currently SuperMac
VideoSpigot,Computer Eyes/RT,AV model Mac, or Connectix Quickcam) at
startup, you will not get a Local Video Window. However, with version .80
or higher you can send text messages using the "Talk" plug-in module that
was distributed with CU-SeeMe. If this file is in the same folder that you
launch CU-SeeMe from, then it should get loaded and you will see an
additional item labeled "Talk" on the menu-bar. Once you have opened the
Talk window, anything you type there will be distributed to anyone else who
has the Talk window open.
