Well, for starters, since your on a 28.8 modem your gonna have to set your
audio compression rate to 16k/s using delta mode I believe it is. You will
only be able to recieve audio when it is in that mode. People who use
better modes will be able to recieve you fine, so you can tell them to set
there audio to the same thing so you can chat. While chatting on a 28.8 I
strongly suggest closing any video widows you have open because you don't
want to lose any audio packets to video.

As far as talking goes its pretty simple. If you want to talk to one
person only just click on his/her microphone icon and and hold it down and
talk. Or you can click on there mircophone icon and go to the audio window
and press talk.

If you want more information, there are a couple good web pages on
Cu-Seeme. If you any more information from me, I'll have to know what kind
of hardware and software you using (version of Cu-Seeme).
