I am using Outlook 98.  The Auto Dial is working, but not over the speakers.  I have tried connecting the speakers directly to the jack on the modem, still nothing.
The modem is a USR 56k Voice.  I received the modem 2nd hand, so I do not have documentation or software that came with it.  USR/3-com have been unresponsive.  Do I need some third party software or something to make this work? If so, what is it called?

Is this modem installed with voice support, there is a special driver needed to use the voice modem, it is a wave driver for modem, you can find the drivers at you want the voice modem drivers. http://www.usr.com/home/online/files/dl07.htm 
there is really 2 different drivers needed
You first install the modem mdm3comv.inf and then once this is installed you add a sound device 3comwave.inf

This should be all you have to do.

It may be because your modem's speaker is dead, but maybe it simple don't have enough power to power the speaker directly (and you get sound so faint it's not perceptible).

You can connect the modem's spk-out to your sound card's line-in using a cable with 3.5mm plugs.  And your microphone to sound card then connect sound card's line-out(no amplifier) to modem's mic-in.  Have a go, see what happens.

newexpert is correct, there is an output from your mode mwhich must be fed to your sound card. The sound vard should have at least one, and sometimes many inputs for other devices. These inputs are amplified by the sound card and fed to the speakers.

Wayneb, nope, the wave driver is listed in the device manager under multimedia exactly like I believe it is supposed to.

NewExpert/Joe, nope, I have tried my amplified speakers directly into the modem spk jack, and also with jumper wires, still nothing, the speaker built onto the modem is working fine.

Any other ideas?
