Go to your setup for your phone dialer and when prompted for access to a long distance outside line check the yes box. When prompted for number to be dialed enter 1. The rest will be taken care of by the software.

Just use a fax phone or something on your PC to call them and talk!

Yes, its possible, and yes, there are things that can help you do this.
First of all make sure to have a modem that is voice capable.

I've used the program that larbel referred to above at http://www.net2phone.com/English/ and was impressed with the results. It's not free and you have to purchase time blocks to use it.  The last time I looked it was 5 cents a minute with a block of 500 minutes being the smallest amount you could buy.
