Before your first appointment:
- You will need to download Skype. It is free: http://www.skype.com/intl/ja/home
- You will need to have a hardwired Internet connection. The cable needs to be connected directly to the computer – wireless connections do not do well with Internet video calls.
- You need a headset with a noise-cancelling microphone. You can buy one for around $15 U.S. on Amazon.com.
- You need a quiet room to have your appointment in with no distractions.
It is really important to have a headset with a noise-cancelling microphone and a wired Internet connection. The sound quality is not good enough to have an appointment with a regular or in-computer microphone.
