The mu-law encoder is BASIC at the moment. The mu-law decoder is assembly language - it's easy.

In reply to AW:

Presumably the exact arrangements for paid calls vary from provider to provider. I've been with sipgate for a while now, and I've only ever used it to call other sipgate numbers, so it's been free. Sipgate (and others, I believe) will allocate conventional telephone numbers; I have a 023 number with them. If I chose to make calls to land lines, then I believe it's similar to PAYG mobiles: you buy credit in advance.

I have no idea how to do audio input on the Mico or Riscstatiion. I'm not about to buy one to try. I might well buy an A9 if they get RISC OS running properly on it. (Flame war elsewhere please!) It may be possible to use espeak, I don't know, but I can't imagine I would want to do that.
