Abstract

There is a need to have a system like iDEN to be able to deliver voice mail (VM) messages to its subscriber units (SUs) without having the SUs dial- ing into the VM system to retrieve messages, This proposed system can provide substantial savings in RF usage, where it will take much less time to auto- matically deliver VM messages to SUs as opposed to having the SUs dialing into the system and retrieve messages. This will enable the system like iDEN to save valuable RF resources and better uti- lize available infrastructure.

TRANSLATING VOICE MAIL TO TEXT FOR SHORT MESSAGE DELIVERY

  There is a need to have a system like iDEN to be able to deliver voice mail (VM) messages to its subscriber units (SUs) without having the SUs dial- ing into the VM system to retrieve messages, This proposed system can provide substantial savings in RF usage, where it will take much less time to auto- matically deliver VM messages to SUs as opposed to having the SUs dialing into the system and retrieve messages. This will enable the system like iDEN to save valuable RF resources and better uti- lize available infrastructure.

  Upon receiving a new VM message, the VM system will interface with a speech-to-text (ST) sys- tem. The ST system main functions are to

1) convert the VM message to ASCII text message

2) format the text message in accordance with the Short Message Service (SMS) system specifications,

3) deliver the converted and formatted mes- sage(s) to the SMS system, which in turn will deliver the message(s) to the SU.

  This system will be able to automatically trans- late VM messages and deliver them into a SMS for- mat to a SU (busy or idle SU). As depicted in Figure 1 traditional VM system works in the fol- lowing manner:

  Upon receiving notification via pager or by dialing into VM system at random SU can retrieve voice mail messages. This procedure requires the use of RF resources which SU has to obtain to com- plete the...
