|The ID Voice is a 2-line,
external voice response device which is controlled by software on a
host computer. The unit allows an easy way to capture data from remote
users. Upon receiving a phone call, simple commands sent from the host
computer instruct the unit to play recorded voice prompts on the phone
line and collect touch tone (DTMF) input from users. Caller ID is
always captured so the phone number from which the user is calling can
be verified. All input and output from the ID Voice is ACSII text
enabling straightforward development for software programmers.|
The ID Voice contains voice file storage for each channel.
Voice prompts can be directly recorded to the unit with a telephone or
voice files can be downloaded via RS232. During operation,
the controlling application simply needs to instruct the unit as to
which file to play. Two independent phone line channels allow playing voice files and capturing data from 2 callers simultaneously. It also allows for application flexibility. You can either program both channels for the same application or run two different applications, one on each channel.
The ID Voice performs the following functions:
In response to the user input, your application would control what messages are played, what DTMF digits are expected, and how the unit will respond to incorrect input. Interfacing to the ID Voice from the host computer is accomplished via serial port or USB (using a converter cable).
- Answer incoming phone calls
- Captures Caller ID
- Stores messages and voice
- Plays any voice file
instructed by the application
- Reports DTMF didgits
- Allows validation of input
- Disconnects the phone call
based upon program command
- Plays system error message
and hangs up call if host application is not operating
Time and Attandance Application
One of the most popular uses of ID Voice is remote timekeeping of employees or contractors working from offsite locations. In this application, staff would call the office to both clock in and clock out. Employees can make these calls by using their cell phones, or in many cases, management will require them to call from the phone at the job site in order to verify their location with Caller ID. Time and attendance by employees and subcontractors working at remote locations can be tracked precisely using your application combined with the ID Voice unit.
Some of the industries using remote timekeeping are:
A typical flow chart for
- Home Healthcare
- Private Security Guard
- Home Repair
Device - End user can
easily make all connections. No internal cards to install.
Independent - No device
drivers needed. Standard RS232 connection to host computer or
USB connection with converter cable.
Command Set - Allows for
straightforward application control.
Data send via ASCII Text -
Caller ID and DTMF collected is sent to the application using fixed
field, space delimited text for ease of software coding.
Voice Storage - Each
channel contains 2 minutes of voice file storage. Record voice prompts
either directly using a telephone or download files via RS232.
Software - Included is an
EasyRecord program (and source code) to record and download voice files
to the ID Voice unit.
Independent Channels -
Each channel of the unit has its own processor, Caller ID chip, and
voice storage. This allows two calls to be processed simultaneously.
Data Collection - The
application instructs the hardware how many digits are to be collected
from the user at each stage of processing the call. Data sent to host
only after the preset condition is met.
Error Handling - The unit
will timeout and hang up the phone call for error conditions such as
wrong amount of digits are collected, no input is entered by the
caller, or the host application is not running.
Caller ID Collection - ID
voice will operate with Caller ID validation in virtually any country
that sends Caller ID signaling.
