    Thanks for all the research Dave! Your results pretty much confirm what I found, these modems
    were made by several vendors (Diamond, Zoom, Creative Labs, etc), a few years ago but now
    there's none. I should've realized finding a new one would be tough when VentaFax (the software
    manufacturer) refused to recommend or point me towards a speakerphone modem.

    Actually I do have a multi-function printer that I can use for the occasional fax, it's just not
    as convenient for me.

    We *do* have cable (Comcast) for internet-TV-telephone, do you think they might have a
    suggestion.

    Thanks again.
    Bob

    That would be a great place to start, they might have something with a
    premium like a discount or with free install. If not, I would recommend
    google and find something you like in your price range. If you see something
    and want info on it just post it and I along with others will try to help
    you decide if it's a good choice.
    HTH,
    Dave
