Using PC as a normal analog telephone

As part of a bigger configuration ( http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/Q_21202765.html ), I would like to use my PC+Voice Modem+Sound card as a normal analog telephone. (Voice conversation)

I would be neat if there is also a way to make this solution pick up calls after a ring or two, and hang up when the remote party terminates the connection.

What is the best way to do this ? ? ?

Extra cred if you can relate this to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/Q_21202765.html

A good speakerphone emulator is SuperVoice, which is often bundled with voice modems. If you happen not to have one, you can download a trial version from here: http://www.supervoice.com/sv-down-ask.php4?txtwhich=sv25-exe
Or a good (perhaps better) alternative is Cheyenne Bitware, almost with the same functionality, and it's freeware: http://www.spyfind.com/bitware.html
Both of them support all the features you require. (Including picking up the phone)

Thanks ! The points are yours ... I'm just downloading the program to check it out
Well, thanks, but first check whether the programs really suit your needs.
Using Voicent Software allows you to completely automate the phone dialing, playing an audio file, collecting user input, and detecting hangup, dialing another phone number...

You can download the free version of the program at:


But if you need to use the speaker phone to talk yourself, then Fairco's answer should do.
