    Voice-over-Browser technologies? Allow 2 people to speak via webpage?

    I am one of the founding members of a startup company that will offer online expert reviews for a particular field.

    Part of the core functionality of our site will involve connecting the client with a reviewer using live audio so they can speak with each other during the review. I'd really like to find a way to do this from within the browser, rather than having to rely on locally installed software to be able to pull this off (such as Skype, iChat, etc.).

    Can it be done using Flash? Isn't this basically how chatroulette.com works (without the video… just audio)? Is it expensive or somehow problematic to try pulling this off via Flash? Can someone point me in the right direction that I can steer my web developer toward for learning more about accomplishing this via Flash?

    Are there any other browser based methods of going about accomplishing this, through the use of plugins, applets, or other browser based tools (i.e. java, etc, etc.) that I should consider if trying to pull something like this off?

    Any links to API's or product pages for such tools, and any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks!

    Thanks for your suggestions but it appears that both of the sites you provided a link to offer chat communication in the form of written text, and I am specifically looking for something that would allow two parties to communicate via voice over a webpage.

    Any one else have any idea where I might look for this?

    file transfer or streaming ?

    Hello,

    if you want send sounddate over IP you can use
    transfer a file
    transfer a stream.

    Transfer a file
    All Plugin with file content f.e. HTML-5-audio over browser-IDE and -player

    Transfer a stream
    Your server must support streaming.
    Adobe support stream, but not freeware
    DivX support stream, but only non commerce.
    Java support stream.

    Both (file an stream) support by messenger like AIM, Yahoo ....
    Text and voict too.
    Or use other products ...

    Problem: Realtime transfer must be streaming.


    Tip: Local text-to-speech-software like WWW: http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm
    can record your voice to audio file. This file can be read by HTML-5-Audio
    (HTML-5) if you convert data to OGG or OGA (see f.e. www.opera.com).

    Cu.

    Thanks so much for your reply! That link you provided looks quite promising.

    It seems that what I am looking to do would be capable by way of either Flash or Java. I am completely clueless as to the benefits and drawbacks of one over the other.

    I would be beyond grateful if you (and everyone else) could weigh in and give their thoughts on which one I should consider leaning toward and why. Any thoughts on advantages/disadvantages of one versus the other?

    Are there any other methods of accomplishing voice chat via a web page other than Flash or Java that might be worth considering?

    If you guys can help me out by providing me with a few more links of some reputable companies/services that provide the capabilities I am seeking, I'd be extremely grateful!

    Thanks so much!
