I'm considering using an old notebook with a built-in modem as an automated attendant. Basically, it would have the following functionalities:
- static menu
- pre-recorded messages
- caller interaction via keypad
- call recording
Usually I use Mathematica for numerical stuff, therefore I'm somehow a layman with whether Mathematica can access the modem or not (I'm pretty sure the audio processing won't be a problem).
I've also tried a fast search at internet (including tags here at StackExchange) but there is almost no information about modem + Mathematica.
Is it possible to access the modem and develop such automated attendant with Mathematica? If so, briefly, what are the main steps?
