Office Accelerator® Support

Dial Phone

The |Dial Phone| feature uses your Windows Dialer to dial phone numbers stored within your Office Accelerator phone book.  To use this feature, you need a modem installed and configured to work with your Windows dialer on your PC.  You can purchase a USB modem from many online retailers such as Amazon.com.  Once your modem is configured, you'll typically need to plug the phone cord (RJ-11) from the wall, into the 'Line' port on the modem and your phone into the 'Phone' port on the modem.  To use the |Dial Phone| function with Office Accelerator, follow the directions below.
