real-time audio

The transmission of live voice or music. It implies that there is no delay at the receiving side, or at most, imperceptible delays.

True real-time audio capability is required in a two-way conversation such as voice over IP (VoIP). See streaming audio, VoIP, UDP and real-time video.
