I thought I’d give Skype a try for dialling into long US teleconferences, as there’s a little friction in our household currently over use of the phone. Sadly, its DTMF generation is so bad that the conference server won’t let me into the meeting! Apparently I’m not the only person with this problem, and it’s been present for 18 months. You would have thought they could get something as basic as DTMF right. Oh, well.
