Does anyone on here know how to make a google voice call from the command line?

I was trying, at first, to use w3m in the same way as I would use firefox to make such calls.  For some reason, and it might be scripting, the calls 
failed to go through.  

Here's what I did: 

First of all I started a screen session.  In one of these windows, I started linphonec, the command line version of linphone.  In the next, I started 
w3m and went to  First of all, I tried with the desktop version and got nowhere.  Then I went to the mobile version of the site and 
attempted the same experiment.  The results were the same.  That's weird, because I thought that mobile sites used something other than scripts to do 
their dirty work.  On one of these occasions, I kept getting 500 internal server errors.  Why would they have their servers configured wrong, 
especially on the mobile end of things.  

Well, I tried again the other day and got nothing at all.  I just got a message that the call was being made but nothing happened.  

Hope you can help.
