A softphone is a piece of software which enables a user to make phone calls via a computer using voice over IP (VoIP). Softphones can make calls to standard phones, mobile phones, and other some other softphones. However not all softphone applications can call other softphone applications.

With most softphone applications, you simply dial a number using your keyboard or click numbers on an image of a real phone that appears on your screen. When using a softphone you can use a headset or a special phone handset.
