Yes....

However you need to subscribe to a PC telephone provider do a search with your browser on PC PHONE you will find a few providers listed.

I have tried this myself and found that you need a decent sound card to cope with the speech. I only dabbled with this but found that the echo effect was quite off putting... And the fact that you have to pay for it!

Things would have to get a lot better before I would have another go !
