Getting Started with Voice Elements

What is Voice Elements?

Voice Elements is a software tool that brings telephony to the wider development community of Microsoft .NET. The tool enables .NET developers to develop IVRs, conference bridges, dialers, call centers, gateways or any telephony application. Supporting all .NET languages, such as VB.NET and C#, Voice Elements includes pre-made voice application modules, sample code tutorials, and reporting features such as call monitoring and logging.

The standard Voice Elements toolkit opens up the .NET architecture for telephony. A typical Visual Studio developer can easily learn the Voice Elements classes and create voice applications. Connection to all of the voice resources that a .NET application requires can be accomplished via our built-in SIP stack or our hosted cloud service.
