Welcome to 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 a wide range of voice, Voip, fax and WebRTC applications. Possible applications include:

  • IVRs
  • Conference Bridges
  • Dialers
  • Call Centers
  • Gateways
  • PBX Applications
  • Fax Servers
  • WebRTC Applications
  • SMS Inbound and Outbound Applications
  • 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.

Voice Elements Toolkit

The Voice Elements toolkit opens up the .NET architecture for telephony. A typical Visual Studio developer can easily learn the Voice Elements classes and quickly create Voice and SMS applications. Voice Elements allows you to connect to our cloud bank and our carrier backbone, or if you prefer you can run a premise based Voice Elements server on your own equipment. Voice Elements conveniently provides FAX, Speech Recognition, Conferencing, and many more additional features of advanced voice applications.
