answer phone, play message, respond to key presses

Hello,
I would like to have a program that acted like an automated
call center where you can select options.

I would like to make a program that would answer a phone,
play a message, and respond to prompts.  I would probably
use visual basic, but I could use a canned program if someone
could recommend one.

Could you please tell me how to get started.  I am sure there
must be some info on this somewhere.

Thanks

There are many commercial alternatives like this, which support VBScript:

To make your own application, you can try this activeX control:
