DRDial1.1

29 December 2004

Use DTMF tones to dial the phone.

Overview

DRDial is a plugin for Apple's Address Book application. It adds a feature to the "action" menu of telephone numbers, called "Dial in Speakers". When selected, the DTMF tones are played through the Mac's speakers. By holding the telephone recevier up against the speaker, one can use this functionality to automatically dial the phone.

What's new in DRDial

Version 1.1:
  • Dial using the fax/voice modem of your Mac, as an alternative to using the speakers.
  • Better feedback during playback, thanks to new "bezels". They look very cool and mimic the volume / brightness controls of OS X. The new bezels are "click-through", an oversight in the earlier version.
  • Smoother sound when playing through the speakers. The "pop" that sometimes occured at the end of each tone is eliminated now.
  • New preferences dialog.
    • Control over the volume when playing through the speakers.
    • Select any available sound output device.
    • Test settings button in preferences. - Tool tips for controls.
  • Enhanced documentation.

Now THAT's what I'm talkin' about! The bezel is a nice touch too. Next stop: Dial with Built-In Modem? T'would be-a nice-a.

DRDial is good, but sometimes I had DTMF mixed quality; I’m calling one of my banks, they Rep is transferring me to a robot to enter my pin #… I’m entering it, and the robot can’t understand the pin. The robot says to enter again… after 3 tries it gives up. …., and it does not understand your commands due to the line in not DTMF. You must troubleshoot DTMF problems with your VoIP connection through route-test.com. They offer a free testing credits. You can find the solution quickly. #VoIP

Vers. 1.1.0 worked great for me for a while...on 10.4.7. Then it started causing Address Book to hang. I found vers. 1.1.1 on the website, released 13th Jan, 2005, but it does the same thing. This seems like something that is so basic that Apple should build it in. It would be nice if the Mac's modem detected CID info and displayed the address book entry.

thank you!, thank you!, thank you! this is the most excellent little utility. tips yes - add the ability to have prefixes removed, Ie ( a prefix list ) that will be ignored. this program should be part of address book!!!

Superb idea. Works nicely. Two suggestions: > Allow use of internal modem to dial > Allow 'stripping' digits for access and area code to facilitate dialing local numbers. 1 512 397-1200 --> 397-1200 Truly nice -- I'll support with thanks and a DONATION.
