    Patent

    The patent is nice. Very clean and simple, and it seems quite valuable. Here is the first claim:

    What is claimed is:

    1. A method for transmitting voice from a presenting computer to one or more client computers over a computer network, comprising the steps of:

    inputting audio data into the presenting computer;

    monitoring the audio data to distinguish between periods of sound and periods of silence;

    storing the audio data associated with the periods of sound;

    transmitting the audio data from said storing step to the client computers; and

    creating a voice buffer from a frame buffer having a predetermined size before said transmitting step,

    said storing step including storing the audio data in said frame buffer and said transmitting step occurring whenever said monitoring step detects a period of silence or whenever the frame buffer is full.
