Phone cords are disappearing from the backs of computers fast, but I'd plug mine in for a way to monitor phone calls through the voice modem. I don't picture using the mic for the conversations, but rather just picking up the phone when I'm taken off hold. There's an option to listen to the calls being dialed for my fax software, and I think Outlook has the option too, so it seems possible. I've looked around extensively, and I haven't found anything close. Has anybody thought this one up before?
