INFO: Using your laptop to make phone calls with it’s BUILT-IN speakers & microphone

What’s the one problem (besides crappy audio) that anyone that attempts to make a phone call on a laptop gets when they use the built-in speakers and microphone?

TAPTAPTAPTAPTAPTAPTAP.  Yup.  The keyboard.  If you’re on a call with someone and you start, I dunno, doing email or start tapping away, unless you proactively hit that mute button, your keyboard will betray you.

imageNow apparently, SoliCall’s driver & software resolves this long standing issue.  Here’s the SoliCall FAQ: http://www.solicall.com/faq.htm

Note that I haven’t actually used this software yet but it looks so very cool that I couldn’t help but blog it.  I’m curious as to how well this technology works and will report back once I’ve done a basic test.

TRANSLATION:  This isn’t a recommendation.  More like a, “Hey – this is interesting.  Let’s see if it works.”
