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 an- 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) recorder line outs, or microphone amplifiers)

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

tele-sound with my Creative Sound mixer or Adobe Audition.   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 with no need for the line-out

Why don't you get the one with a headset jack and go to Radio Shack for an adapter to match the mic-in of your sound card?  Headset jacks are typically 2.5mm, and soundcard jacks are 1/8".

p.s. i'm fairly sure you can pick an adaptor up (like at link above ) at most budget high-street electronics stores
