Re: making phone calls using a perl module
Message ID:
I'm making a guess here... But I think voice modems use the (standart) AT
commands even for the voice commands.
So if you know what to send, just use something like Device::SerialPort to
dial via the modem and for the mp3 play, you could "inject" the audio signal
coming from your soundcard to the pone line via a small transformer (I did
it in the old bluebox times... Ooooops... I didn't say that!)
The entire process would be something like this:

open commport
send ATZ
send ATDT5559988
send AT+VOICE (beware, this isn't the real command)
output mp3 to soundcard
send ATH1 (or the hang up command)
close commport
