Nice Loud Speaker with Volume Control.
The Orator has a modular cord that plugs into a phone line and lets you monitor conversations on the line - without disturbing either party talking on the line.
Modular cord plugs into an analog phone line. There's a jack on the Orator to plug in a phone (not needed if you don't want to talk or dial).
The Orator presents a high impedance to the line so it won't take the line off-hook. One-way speaker (not a speakerphone) will broadcast the entire conversation (all parties on the line) through the speaker.
If you're speaking on a phone in the same room, face the Orator away from you so you won't get feedback.
Comes with a 7' Modular mounting cord for a regular analog phone line, and USB Power Adapter.
To connect it to the handset of an electronic phone, see the Orator Handset Kit (#SER4O).
