A recent article in New Scientist described a strategy to intercept voice calls and filter out robocalls. I have a Virgin 3 hub and my landline phone is in the Purple category. Can I use a telephony api on my pc to access incoming calls on my phone - if so any pointers to tutorials etc would be appreciated.
Ben thanks for the info. I have a BT handset which I believe is DECT - the filtering though as far as I can see is against a list of numbers and the current crop of scam calls use onetime fictional numbers. The New Scientist report is based on the following link:-
The system described is for an Android app - today I had the same Amazon charges scam call (which has been a nuisance for many months) 4 times. So because I am retired and have the time to play around with these things I wondered whether the principle could be enacted on my pc with regard to my landline. From what you say it looks like I can treat the line coming out of the hub just as I would if there was no hub and attach an old analogue modem 'inline'.
