NCH's Express Talk is a VoIP softphone that allows you to make calls from your PC or Mac instead of requiring the use of external/traditional handsets. Express Talk works with almost any VoIP SIP gateway provider and offers common VoIP features such as conferencing, call recording, caller ID display, and voice commands, and allows you to configure up to 6 distinct lines, making it most ideal for small businesses or enterprise offices that are on the smaller side. Additionally, it integrates with Microsoft Address Book and includes a phone book with a quick dial configuration. It even can be used with USB phones, headsets, microphones, webcams, and USB phones.

Note: There is a free trial version, however it is available for non-commercial use only.
