Spokes Known Issue: ShoreTel Communicator 13 does not Work with Spokes


When using ShoreTel Communicator 13, all Spokes operations (including call control, mute synchronization and media player control) do not function on any Plantronics device, and the Smart Sensor™ does not function on devices that have it (such as the Voyager Pro UC, Voyager Legend UC and Blackwire 700 series).


Starting with ShoreTel Communicator 13, the ShoreTel installer no longer includes the TAPI (Telephone Application Programming Interface) client software required by Spokes to communicate with supported Plantronics devices.


Install the TAPI client software using the stand-alone installer, available from ShoreTel as the “ShoreTel Telephony Interface”; contact ShoreTel for further information.
