Default Speaker issue

If you are not at your computer and it is not in your field of vision, and a
call comes in (assume you are using a softphone), you have to have the speakers
turned on with the volume up to know someone is ringing you.

You pick up the call and don the headset, your call is then a mess of feedback
until you turn the speaker volume down.

The obvious way to avoid this is to use a VOIPphone or ATA, but failing this, is
there any way to make the internal beeper of the PC ring instead of the PC's
speakers?

Look at something like the "Phonette"
http://www.perfectcommunication.se/ .
The pages are available in English.
If you use the sound-card version, the phone will ring through your
speakers. As soon as you pick the handset up the speakers are
disconnected (I understand)..

Look at the options of your softphone, most have the ability to use the
internal PC
speaker. Is this too obvious or have I missed something?
