This seems to be a popular question, i.e.,
http://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/comp/os2/programming/Q.10071985
asks a quite-similar question,
but nobody has (yet) answered that question.

Phone key pad generates touch tone electrical tones, or switch breaks in pulse mode. Neither is ascii code, or can be directly read by a computer. You need youch tone decoder box with a computer interface.

Huh?  I just checked my voice-mail, and
the computer asked me to use the keypad to enter my "password".

Obviously, that computer was(!) able to convert the tones
generated by the keypresses into some sort (ASCII?) of codes,
so that my password could be verified ?!?!

If your modem has a MFT-convertion, this could be read in from the serial port. I used such a modem long time ago and it returned the numerical value of the key (not ascii). It depends on your modem.

MFT=are the tone codes you telephone sends when a key is pressed. This has nothing to do with a Hayes modem. I had a PSI Comstation (sorry I don't know which model) which was able to convert this codes.
