The tech person at my ISP calls my modem a "voice modem".  Does anyone know why it is called a "Voice modem"?  Since she sent the instructions via email, I did not get to ask her.

 

Thank you. hazelm

voice modem is an analog telephone data modem with a built-in capability of transmitting and receiving voice recordings over the phone line. Voice modems are used for telephony and answering machine applications.

Hmmmm.  Interesting since my computer is in no way connected to a telephone.  Maybe it could be if I wanted?  Thank you for explaining.
