[Parts Check] Play msg over line shared with handset?


A doctor asked me for advice about the following little problem he has.

1. He currently has a PC running XP and a DECT wireless handset.
2. His office is inside a building, so he has to explain to first-time patients how to get there.
3. To make matters worse, there are two digicode door entry systems.
4. Understandably, he's a bit tired of having to run through this every time a new patient makes an appointment.

I know that voice modems can play a message over the analog line, but I was wondering if the modem could go online and do its stuff *after the phone has already gone off-hook*? Or can this be done only before a call has been answered manually by picking up the handset?

Thank you.


It appears that voice modem seem able to "butt" into a conversation and play a message through AT commands.

Incidently, there seems to be a lot of crappy voice modems out there. If someone knows of a good brand + model, I'm interested
