Telephony Overview

Telephony is a technology that integrates computers with the telephone network. With telephony, people can use their computers to take advantage of a wide range of sophisticated communications features and services over a telephone line.

The Telephony application programming interface (TAPI) lets programmers develop applications that provide personal telephony to users.
