Sending DTMF from computer

Just started using Phone Amego. I like using my QC15s on my computer instead of my other headset, but I dial into a lot of conference bridges. They require inputting a PIN after I call the main number. Is it possible to send the DTMF tones once the call is connected from the computer instead of picking up my phone?

Thanx!

Yes, please see "Sending Touch-Tones" on this page: http://www.sustworks.com/pa_guide/placeCall.html

The details depend on what kind of telephone device you are using, but it generally works for Bluetooth cell phones, USB modems, and Polycom IP phones. It doesn't work for devices that can't dial, and some softphones.

I've been thinking about adding an action menu where you can define touch tone sequences with simple easy to remember names like "Start Recording" or "Delete Message" instead of remembering which key(s) to press.
