Express Talk is a virtual telephone program that allows users to make calls between computers using IP Telephony. It is compatible with other software-based VoIP SIP protocols, allowing free calls to computers that have installed Express Talk.
In addition to the typical functions of a VOIP call via the internet, Express Talk offers several useful features. It allows users to hold up to six simultaneous conversations, reduces background noise, and can be configured to bypass firewalls. The program also enables users to record conference calls in MP3 format, identify incoming calls, and store numbers for speed dialing.
Express Talk supports video (H263, H261) for webcams or IP phones and integrates with the Mac OS X Address Book. Business users have the option to upgrade to the Business Edition, which supports call transfers and allows up to six people to join one call using the Call Conferencing feature.
Overall, Express Talk is a useful option for individuals and business users who need more than what Skype or their normal VOIP service offers.
