Tucson, Arizona-based Artisoft Inc has launched Version 4 of its Visual Voice toolkit for Windows 95 & NT computer telephony application development, which now includes multi-threading capabilities. Artisoft has been moving away from its core peer- to-peer networking – networks that don’t use servers – since June last year (CI No 3178), because Windows 95 has the capabilities built in. Rather than be left in limbo, it decided to develop Computer Telephony, where the dream is to turn every personal computer into a telephone, and also concentrated on the small business with the i.Share modem and internet connection sharing software, where every computer on a network shares a modem or ISDN adapter. The toolkit is a 32-bit ActiveX control that turns an ActiveX compatible development environments into Computer Telephony development tools, capable of producing applications that support up to 96 phone lines and support for Voice Mail, audiotext, outbound calling, interactive voice response, and fax- on-demand. Visual Voice is shipping for $800, and Artisoft says 6,000 developers are using previous versions.
