With the Cornell versions, you need at least a 28.8kbps modem to do audio.
The lowest available bandwidth codec available with the Cornell version is
the 16kbps Delta-Mod codec. It needs at least 16-20kbps to work well.

You could try using one of White Pine's versions, but I'm not familiar
with the audio codecs available on the Mac WP versions. I believe the
lower bandwidth codecs are only available on the 3.1 preview.
