Download Ventrilo
Ventrilo is a scalable VoIP designed to solve problems with packet loss, uptime, network latency and administration. Although Ventrilo is popular with gamers, it is good for home and personal use and is a great tool for business conferencing and inter-office communication.

Ventrilo has sound positioning and special sound effects to let the user customize just how they hear sounds from events or from other users. Sound quality is crystal clear and this software is easy on the CPU resources so it doesn't interfere with other operations or a game that's being played. First time users can learn to operate it quickly, as the commonly used features are right there in front of them and it only takes one click of the mouse to activate them.

There are many unique features to this software that set it apart from similar products. It has TTS (text to speech) voice generation, user adjustable sound effects, a built-in server browser and it lets the user record and play back voice streams. A headset and microphone are used so that the user has their hands free to play a game or work.

Users can create an individual channel for their own use or to have a private conversation, which is ideal for a business environment with conferencing needs. Ventrilo has advanced channel control options and filters and wave file or TTS event notifications. There is no need to write down or remember IP numbers, as it has user assigned names for server connections.
