Windows keyboard shortcut - Dial telephone number

0 votes

Is it possible to map a keyboard shortcut to call a telephone number which has been highlighted using the mouse cursor in windows? On a previous softphone I was able to have a shortcut mapped to the F1 key, when I pressed F1 the softphone would dial the selected number.

If not is it possible to do anything similar?

I just posted this answer for another problem, seems perfect to help you as well:

There is a nice tool called Autohotkey and I have been playing around with it a little bit and created a fuction similar to your request.

You can highlight a number with e.g. 123/456, then press Ctrl + "-" in the Numpad and the script will copy the number to the clipboard, remove everything but numbers, paste it to zoiper and press the green button.

I put the source code of the custom script at:

There are some more features and I was hoping to get some inspiration or ideas from the Community Forum so maybe there are some people who are interested in driving this further.


Edit: I work with the Zoiper Phone Interface 2, as the pressing of buttons is based on the position there needs to be other "coordinates" for other styles.
