Re: NYNEX and voice dialing.
I have a simple telephony question for anyone in the know to answer.
How can I get my ibmpc-compatible modem to dial immediately
without waiting to detect a dial tone?
Why do I need to do this? Because through NYNEX I subscribe
to the "Voice Dialing" service which disables the dial-tone (after
a half-second) and listens for a voice command (e.g. if I say
"mother" the service begins dialing ny nother's phone number).
But this clashes with my modem which seems hard-wired to detect
a dial-tone prior to dialing.
NYNEX's answer is for me to dial *98 and then hang-up prior
to using my modem. This manual procedure is less than satisfying,
to say the least. I cannot automate this *98 technique, because
my modem won't dial *98 until it detects a dial-tone!
I am running Windows NT 4.0.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
