Call recording for softphones and for headsets
The Oygo records and archives telephone calls that are made using a headset, if the audio is streamed to an audio device on the pc. The Oygo also records from softphones. When using a softphone, Oygo can record both sides. When the Oygo is used with another type of phone, the headset needs to support the recording option.

Oygo software for headsets and softphones
The Oygo is an application for systematic recording and archiving of telephone calls that are made using a headset. Oygo can record calls from a headset when the audio of the headset is streamed to an audio device on the PC. Recordings are stored on the hard disk of the computer.
To record calls using the software, the software needs to be activated first.
The program stores recordings in a versatile database. Pre-defined queries for time intervals are readily available. Custom queries can be made and saved. Recordings can be exported from and imported back into the database. The database has its own Windows style Recycle-bin.
The Call Recorder Oygo application can record from one or more audio sources at the same time. By default, recording is done automated. Manual recording can be enabled for each individual device in the Device settings.
To record from an audio source, such as a headset, the audio source must be available on the PC as an audio recording device. If available, the audio source will be listed in the Devices drop-down box on the Devices screen. Not all headsets present their audio as an audio recording device on the PC. Depending on the type of headset, it might be needed to make changes to the configuration on the headset base station, to make the audio source available.
Make sure that the headset base station is connected to the PC, for example using a USB-wire. If there is option in the headset base station to enable recording, enabled this option. It might be needed to enable SoftPhone functionality on the headset base station, to make sure an audio recording source is available on the PC. For details about how to configure your headset, consult the manual of the headset that is used.
