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!

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
