Unimodem V Adds Additional Support for Data/Fax/Voice Modems
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows 95
Unimodem V is the newest release of Unimodem, the Windows universal modem driver/telephony service provider for data/fax modems. Unimodem V provides the driver support that sits between telephony applications and voice modems and allows them to work together. This driver adds the most requested features to support data/fax/voice modems, including wave file playback and recording to and from the phone line, wave file playback and recording to and from the handset, and support for speakerphones, Caller ID, distinctive ringing, and call forwarding.
Independent hardware vendors (IHVs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can include Unimodem V with voice modem hardware so that telephony applications can run on their hardware. Independent software vendors (ISVs) can include Unimodem V with telephony applications so that their applications can run on voice modems that may not already include Unimodem V. Users can use Unimodem V with a telephony application or a voice modem if neither includes Unimodem V.
