Windows XP      -    Telephone

I want to send/ output a live-telephone signal directly into my PC - either through a  direct "line-input"  into my soundcard or into my

modems "telephone"-in.        For tele-conference purposes.


Using the soundcard method:
---------------------------------

All I want is a telephone or telephone adapter that has a real audio line output (many have special headset line-outs that are not standard size)

I do not want any suction cup amplifiers, auto tape-cassette recorder (voice  activated) recorders, or microphone amplifiers)

I just want a telephone with a line out or an adapter for a telephone with a line out.   Then I can plug it into my soundcard and amplify/mix the

sound.   Most amplified telephones sound like a tin-can so I would like to be able to mix it, add some bass, etc.

IF ANYBODY CAN FIND A TELEPHONE OR PHONE - ADAPTER w - A LINE OUT/  OUTPUT -  I WILL AWARD 500 POINTS IMMEDIATEDLY.


second option.... can I plug my phone line into my pc's modem and dial out/ a number, and then hear the phone-voice thru my sound card ?  Not

through  pc speaker or modem speaker...  so this is essential the same as the "line out" method but without a line out.

I'm fairly sure you can just buy an adaptor that goes from standard phone socket to headphone jack - i'm sure i saw something of that sort in Maplin...  and yes it was cheap.

I'm in the UK so i don't know if you have Maplin but i guess the nearest alternative I guess would be Radioshack...  you'd just be able to run that into your soundcard - or perhaps through a preamp if you have one...

then when you have a call just hit record on your recording software of choice - and not a click will be heard...  haven't tried it but should work!
