I am using dialer.exe to dial a voice phone call from Windows 7. but, the problem is that I can hear the recipient of the phone call, but recipient cannot hear me.

So, what is the name of some software to handle voice portion of call?

Phone Dialer (dialer.exe) is exactly what it says it is: a dialer. According to Microsoft's help pages, you will need to be sure that your modem supports both voice and data connections.

Instead of using a separate piece of software, you also have the option to pick up a handset connected to the same line as your modem, and you should be able to speak.

I don't know how much software there is out there to handle the voice portion. You may be better off using a service like Google Talk (free within the United States until at least the end of the year) or Skype (free for computer-to-computer).

Originally, I was looking for a solution to make/receive phone calls using PC, modem, telephony software and landline. Strictly, I do not want to use Internet/VOIP.

I bought a PROLINK 56K USB Fax/Data Modem 1456UC. Installed on my PC, it works fine. Dial the telephone number using Windows 7 Phone Dialer. Talk using normal phone.
