Play audio during call

Is it possible to play an audio file during a call, so that the other people in the call hear the audio file? 


For example, if User A and User B are in the middle of a phone conversation, can User A play an audio file that is on his Blackberry so that User B hears it?


I'd like the audio to played directly to the other user, rather than merely second hand (e.g., where User A has to raise his volume and hope that his own microphone picks up the audio and plays it, low quality, to User B).


Ideally, all User B should be able to hear is the audio file (e.g., without hearing User A's voice or anything else via User A's microphone, such that User A's microphone is essentially temporarily disabled).


Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think this is possible

Are you sure you are posting this in the right forum?


The PlayBook isn't a phone. You can't call anyone, unless you mean the video chat function...
