What is PalTalk?
PalTalk is a website that provides software which makes it possible to have group meetings (of any size) using your computer as a voice and text communication tool. It’s a cross between a text only chat group and a voice only telephone. The great benefit of PalTalk is that we can join with each other and have meetings in the comfort and convenience of our own homes.
Your computer needs to have working speakers and, if you want to talk also, a working microphone. If you don't have a mic you can type your questions / comments for all to see in the room's text box. Test your equipment before hand. You can do this easily by using Windows Voice Recorder from the Start->Programs->Accessories->Entertainment menu.
PalTalk Gatherings are always held at the same location:
- Open Website: http://www.paltalk.com
- Select Group: Education, then Click on Other
- Select Room: ACIM Gather for A Course In Miracles
