I like to use Skype to chat (1-on-1) with my SO and a couple friends when they're far away.
In these calls, when sound is played through a user's mic, Skype automatically ducks the inbound call volume for that user. So, for example, if my friend is speaking, and I decide to speak at the same time, Skype automatically lowers my inbound volume - meaning, my friend gets quieter.
How do I stop this from happening?
I'm using the latest version of Skype on Windows 7 (x64) Ultimate.
(Note: I am not asking about how to prevent Skype from auto-ducking other programs. I am asking about auto-ducking within a Skype call)

Unfortunately this is how Skype is designed to work. Only one voice stream is allowed at the same time. In other words, Skype does not support full duplex.
