DTMF Dialer Service 1.0
Easily dial any phone number selected in any text window.
A new menu entry „Dial using DTMF tones and speaker“ is added to the services menu, when text is selected. Alternatively, the keyboard shortcut „⇧⌘=“ may be used.
When the text contains a telephone number, this number is transformed into a valid number for the actual location as defined in the corresponding preference pane. When an internal or public switch operates with DTMF, holding the receiver to the speaker will dial the selected phone number.
A Preference Page is added to the System Preferences: Critical is the correct selection of the volume setting in cooperation with the system volume. Some experiments with the selected telephone will be required, to ensure reliable operation.
Checking the Checkbox „Confirm Number“ will show the localized number to the user and ask for his confirmation before dialing.
To uninstall the service, remove the file „DTMFdialer.service“ from /System/Library/Services and the file „DTMFdialPref.prefPane“ from /System/Library/PreferencePanes.
