I am using asterisk with a usb headset and therefor no actual telephony handset.

I have configured asterisk to use voicemail and I can dial the mailbox via my touchscreen application. The only problem is voicemail asks you to press “1” to hear messages. With a handset this is simple, but does anyone know how to send the appropropriate command to asterisk without using a handset?

Or does anyone know if there is a way to configure the voicemail system so that it automatically plays the messages?

Many thanks for reading my problem



Is there a sound card on these touch screens? If so you could use the a web voicemail interface to play the audio files.
