Comments:
I know relatively little about this product, but there have been a number of posts on it recently. It's apparently a re-badged Aztech unit, or at least is based upon an Aztech chipset for its sound functions. The file above is reputed to work with the board. If not, check the section on Aztech products. There is an OS/2 program for using the answering machine functions of voice-enabled Rockwell-based modems that might be worth trying for the answering machine-enabled Packard Bell products, but I've no idea how well this works or if it will work with these cards. Warp 4.0 also ships with a version of FaxWorks that's voice-enabled for Rockwell-based modems, and that may work with this card, but again, no guarantees.
