Looking for a product....

I hope this is in the right forum, I don't want to upset the forum gods!  Back in 1993/94, there was a company making/selling a keyboard for the PC that also had a phone and headset jack built in it.  It interfaced with ACT directly, so if you hit dial in ACT!, it would then dial the number through the keyboard and then you could hangup from the keyboard as well.

 

Anyone have any info on possibly finding these?

 

Thanks in advance!

The 93-94 time frame would make the then current version of the ACT! program ACT! 2. I was supporting the ACT! program at that time and I never heard of the product or addon that you refer to. However, it's possible that it did exist because the ACT! program did not have an effective phone dialer at that time. With ACT! 3 a link to the Windows TAPI dialer was added to the ACT! program eliminating the market for such a product as you describe.

If you have ACT! 2005 (or later) and a TAPI phone connection and any headset or mic/speaker connection, you can use itDial
