Speak Freely 7.2

Speak Freely is an Open Source Internet Telephone that lets
you talk to others over the Internet just as you would a
regular telephone. There are several features, including
compression, encryption, and an answering machine for when
you aren t available but want others to leave a message for

ABOUT PC-TO-PHONE CALLING
Speak Freely does NOT allow you to call regular telephones
around the world. Each person must be using Speak Freely in
order to communicate at all. Obviously, it would be a great
feature to add, but doing so would be expensive to maintain
a set of gateways. I did manage to develop such a service for
Go2Call.Com using parts of Speak Freely, but I don t think they
would want me to publish that source code. :)
WHAT S NEW
Version 7.2 fixes a long-standing audio bug, so you should
notice at least some improvements in audio quality. Some
will notice more of a difference than others.
The help file has not changed from 7.1, because I don t have
the old Microsoft Help Compiler. I will have to rewrite most
of it using their new HTML Help format. Urgh.
Updated the source code to compile with Microsoft Visual C++
Removed the Money Saved indicator since it was confusing a
lot of people into thinking they were being billed for the
calls they made. I don t like it when companies remove
features either, but I just got tired of all of the questions
about this one.
