DIY phone headset to computer plug?? Answered

I would like to make one of these.
http://www.amazon.com/TOP%C2%AE-Headset-RJ9-RJ10-Adapter/dp/B00CXTO2NM
It is to connect to the headset port in my phone to record some greeting that I saved on my computer
It only needs to connect the computer speaker to the phones mic.
I need to know the pinouts of both connectors and what to connect together
Thanks

The audio is on your computer, and you want to put it on your phone system, correct?

Ok I get it. So there's some links attached and all your need to do is wire the the left and right stereo wires to wire 4 of your RJ9 and the ground of your stereo to the wire 1 (stereo is your computer speaker output)

I hope this helps! :)

I did that, but it was hollow and you could not understand it

Keep in mind the clarity of the phone's mic is not vary good to start with. Likewise any answering machine or service will also have poor recording quality. So if you have a lot going on in the message then it will be distorted and you won't be able to understand it. Ever notice how bad hold music sounds. They are using a direct connection there as well. The phone system was never designed for even decent quality audio. Your recording may be beyond the ability of the phone system to adiqquatly use.

ok I will keep that in mind. It will at least improve it a little. But do i just connect the computer speaker to the phone mic as seen in this picture?

I have no idea what you're trying to do, but for looking up the pinouts for your devices, whatever they might be, I suggest pinouts.ru
