Using Phone Dialer in Windows 2000
With your computer and telephone connected to the same line, you can use the Phone Dialer to make a call, or participate in a video conference call, from your computer. The dialer can also store telephone numbers. Make sure that you have selected the profile for the site you are dialing from; then you can make computer-to-ISP (Internet Service Provider) and computer-to-computer calls.
Note: Your telephone line will need to be equipped with a dual jack or a "Y" splitter so that your computer and your telephone can share it.
To open the Phone Dialer, click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Communications -> Phone Dialer.
For more information on how to use the Phone Dialer, read the help files provided within the application.
Note: This feature is supported on Windows(R) 98 and Windows 2000. It is not supported on Windows XP.
