Abstract

The transmitted telephone number refers only to the telephone of the caller, not to the actual person who is calling. So the receiver of the call does not know immediately the identity of the caller. In other words, only the information of the hardware from the user is transferred, not information about the user of that hardware.

Generally

Normally, when a call is placed, the number of the caller is transmitted to the display of the receiver of the call. Information about the caller’s telephone equipment may also be transferred.

 

Introduction

The transmitted telephone number refers only to the telephone of the caller, not to the actual person who is calling. So the receiver of the call does not know immediately the identity of the caller. In other words, only the information of the hardware from the user is transferred, not information about the user of that hardware.

Solution

The user is identified by detecting their voice, and the name is transferred to the voice pattern. This detection may be achieved by speech processing and acoustic pattern recognition. Discussion can only commence with the ensured unmistakable digital identification of the user’s voice. The caller and the other party will receive information about each other.

Looking at this solution in more detail, information from each user’s digitally recognised voice is transmitted to the destination. This information generated by the system must be accompanied by a suitable agreement with the service provider. A sample of the user’s voice must be sent to the provider, in order to facilitate the voice recognition. On request, calls could be transferred to various identified destinations. This could be completed by the provider or the telephone itself.� �
