You need a voice modem for that to work. And most modems don't have
voice capability. As they are more costly.

Follow-up: BillW, do not know if I have a voice modem. Will try to find out
since that may be the problem. Ken, I do have a dial-up modem. It works to
place a call and I can hear the answering party over the computer speakers,
but they cannot hear me. The mike works in other programs.

Does your modem have a microphone jack?

Oh I don't know any laptops that have voice modems. It's not impossible,
just very less likely. They do sell external (both RS2332 and USB) voice
modems though that should work just fine.
