that's been a longstanding wish - the problem, however, is that all 
solutions I found so far mean that we have to decide to either use 
computers to connect, or phone. Mixing both is not possible. Reason is 
that we would have to buy dial-in numbers in foreign countries on our 
own, which is extremeley expensive.

Probably we can do some Asterisk/Freeswitch gateway, i.e. we offer a SIP 
server that dials to talkyoo via PTSN and mix both channels, but I'm not 
sure if that is trivial.

About Skype, the problem is at least that they only have 10 lines for 
all talkyoo users together, so it's kind of unsure whether the dial-in 
works at all. Plus, it seems to have audio issues from time to time, so 
it should really be some sort of last resort.

That'd be great. I talked with talkyoo about those issues months ago, 
and they told me they need date, time, and involved phone providers to 
determine the cause of the problems. So if I have these, I am happy to 
forward the information to talkyoo.

Sadly, the German dialin seems to work like a charm, I never have any 
problems, which makes it hard for me to debug. :/
