VOICE DATE/TIME IN NATIVE LANGUAGES USING MOBILE PHONE

by KUEK TECK HOCK

With an innovation herein described, the "voice related feature" of a mobile phone is enhanced by using the phone to provide in audio, the date and time in a users' native language.

This feature is particularly useful to users who prefer listening to reading or whose vision are impaired, and those who may be illiterate.

To use this feature, a user records his voice speaking each of the numeric numbers from 0 to 60, and these voice recordings are stored in the memory of a mobile phone in his native language. When the user wants to know the date and/or time, he can do so by depressing one or more switches on the phone and will then hear the time and/or date in his voice.

The audio representation of the time and/or date is composed of the voice recordings that are stored in the phone and the composition is accomplished under the control of a microcontroller in the phone. The figures below illustrate the process of storing the voice recordings and the production of the audio date and/or time composition.
