I have a Pentium with Win95 and a Sound Blaster 16 bit sound card. I just bought a microphone and I have hooked into the Mic input jack at the back of the card. I have brought up Phone Dialer from Win95 and yet it doesn't seem to work. I can get through to the number I dial and yet no one can hear me. I have double checked the mic and it works.

First of all, you would need an voice capable modem, secondly, you'll need to connect the mic to your modem's mic jack, not the sound card.

Thank you. My modem is a SupraExpress 33,6 and as it was an OEM model it didn't come with decent documentation. The manual is for a 28,8 and it mentions nothing of the voice capabilities per se. The software that is bundled with it again doesn't clearly establish the links to easily grasp the hardware/software hookup. There isn't an input jack. Only the two phone jacks. So I was mistaken in thinking that I could install a mic and get a speaker phone.

Would the phone handset once installed into the phone jacks at the back of the modem serve as a phone?

I've never try that...  But are you sure your modem is voice capable?  Look in Control Penal>System>Device Manager>Sound, Video and game controller  If you don't see anything like 'wave device for voice modem' than your modem is not voice capable, and you'll not able to use it as a phone.  (Usually a voice modem will have a mic jack on back no matter if it's a internal or exteneral)
