Does anyone know if and how I can re-route the sounds of my modem speaker and
system speaker through my soundcard to my speakers? Is there a software
solution is it a hardware thing?
I did find a program that can send the sound of normal telephone conversations
to my modem speaker (folis20, at
ftp://ftp.omen.com.au/pub/files_3/comms/folis20.arj) but the sound is horrible
and this is only part of what I would like to have.
Actually this is a limited version of a question that seems to be more
complicated than I thought (I get no answers). If you can answer that one I
would really be grateful.
Here is my original question:
Here's a question that looks simple in my non-technical mind. I want to do
handsfree telephoning from the desk where I have my computer. I could buy a
handsfree telephone, but it seems to me I already have the equipment.
I have a computer with a 14k4 modem, an AWE32 soundcard, a microphone and
speakers. I don't know if my modem has voice capabilities, probably not.
As I see it a telephone is nothing more than a serial device with a microphone,
a speaker, a bell and some buttons that make beeps. All this can be done with a
soundcard, with the modem just as a way to plug in the telephone connector.
Is there more to it than this? What (shareware) software do I need?
I have seen this question posted elsewhere but haven't seen answers other than
"I know you can but I don't know how".
