Picture Caller ID is a software-only Caller ID tool for your computer. It uses your modem and Caller ID service provided by your phone company to identify and block unwanted calls before you answer the phone. Telemarketer call block works by cutting off the calls originated from a number that is black-listed; you may black-list the numbers that are withheld, private, out-of-area and more !
Features various call announce options. It can announce the caller's name and number with the computer-generated voice by using a text-to-speech engine. Alternatively, you can map personalized ring sounds to the callers, so that you hear distinctively who's calling even if you are away from your computer.
Supports a number of fully customizable visual methods of telling you who's calling, ranging from enabling a large full-screen Caller ID display that can engage itself automatically in case you are away from your computer, to displaying an unobtrusive Caller ID tool-tip notification near the system clock that will not disturb your work.
