Purpose: It can serve as a way of communication and file sharing between users.

 

How it works: Skype is a program (compatible with PCs, Macs, and smartphones) that enables video calling, file sharing, and instant messaging between users (whether they’re Deaf/deaf, hard-of-hearing, or hearing). It can send files such as video messages and pictures through its instant messaging feature, allowing users to send quick visual messages back and forth if they’re not able to make a full-length Skype call.
