Q&A: How would I explain VoIP to a child?

Question by Dak K: How would I explain VoIP to a child?
My little brother (8) is asking about voice over IP and I don’t really know how to explain it to him simplistically. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Just tell him that it sends the persons voice through the computer and through the internet instead of through the phone and phone line. I can’t think of a simpler way. If he asks how it gets to a phone just explain there’s a box that lets the call go through to other phone lines.
