What I would like to do is be able to answer the phone from my computer with the head set that is conected to my sound card. I have searched the net but all I can find is diagrams for self build interfaces. Is what I want possible with the set up I have? Is it possible at all?
OS: XP pro
Mobo: Gigabyte 7NNXP
Cpu: AMD Athlon 3200
Sound: Creative Audigy2 platinum ex
Modem: Sitecom Advanced pci 56k v92 full duplex,vioce fax data with speaker phone.( this one for phone only)
I connect to the internet through a broad band modem.
At the moment I have two head sets which I have to swap depending on what I am using. There is a mic jack and a speaker jack on the modem. I have connected the speaker jack to my sound card so I get sound out of the speakers, that works fine. What I cant figure out is how to get the mic that is pluged into the sound card to the modem so that I can switch between the modem and the sound card without unpluging any thing.
The other thought I had was is it possible to do it with software, after all the computer is also my answer phone, recording and sending sound through the phone line anyway. (Now I am getting into realms of the unknown for me. )I have searched for programs but the only thing I can find is internet phone programs.
Any help or pointers would be greatfuly appreciated.
PS. I posted a thread earlier but it came up as I was not logged in. I have looked and cant find it so if this is a repeat I appologise it was not intentional
