Way2Call Hi-Phone DeskTop is a hardware device that works with the telephone line instead of (or in parallel with) your voice modem. Features full TAPI compatibility, Caller ID (US, Canada and Australia compatibility), and exceptional playback/recording quality. You do not need a voice modem to handle your IVR applications if you have this device.

Its open architecture gives developers, system integrators, and OEMs the flexibility to develop a wide range of application solutions to suit different markets. Its small footprint, external form factor, and Plug & Play (PnP) capabilities make it very easy to deploy in the Win98SE, 2000, and XP environments.
