Can you send an intercom page through a sip client?

I'm not even sure if i'm asking the right thing.  I have a client that has a SIP Client using VoIP phone system, and they are using headsets, so they might not be able to hear the existing paging system. Can you make a page go through the headphones via SIP Client so they don't miss an announcement?

I don't want to put a lot of time into this if it's not even possible.

Thanks :-)

I think it would have more to do with the headset/handset than with the SIP protocol itself.  I know in our hybrid Samsung PBX, our Cisco IP phones will receive voice announcements, while our digital headsets don't (announcements broadcast through the handset).
