One of the many ways you can talk to each other as Loungers is via TeamTalk:
TeamTalk is available for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.
Windows Users: We recommend TeamTalk 5 Classic for Accessibility, which is an option given in the installer.
Update (May 2018)
Due to repeated issues with people being irresponsible on the server, the server details and port number have been removed from the instructions below.
Please contact Tony for the Server Details.

Once you have downloaded Team Talk from the App Store, double tap on the icon and you will be placed in team talk.
Go ahead and add a new server.
Find the add button at the top right-hand corner of the screen. (For screen reader users, it will say add button).
Then double tap and you will then be placed on to the add server screen
The next thing you will need to do is give the server you are adding a name.
Name the server something that easily identifies the server you are connecting to.
For example if you are connecting to the Lounge, call it "The Lounge"
When you have filled in the name of your server, the next step will be the host address.
The next step is the TCP port. IN this edit box, just type in the number.
The next step is the UDP port. In this one you also type in the number
Then all you need to do is scroll up to the top, on the top right you will find the save button.Double tap it and your server will be saved.
Now you will need to connect to the server.
You do this by going to where it says the name of the server. That would be the name you put in when you set the server up. Double tap on the server name and then go to where VoiceOver says "connect", then double tap on it.
Once Connected, on the server there is a room called "The Lounge", tap it and there will be an option to "Join" or "Connect". Tap it as instructed by VoiceOver or TalkBack and you're in!
We can help you once connected to change any other settings
