Abstract

When listening to messages recorded on a phone answering system, the user typically must stand by with a paper and pen or pencil to recording data such as the callers name, phone number, date of call, etc. This process of transcribing voice messages is time consuming and error prone. This invention combines a printing system and a phone answering system using caller ID and voice recognition technology.

Answering machine printer.

When listening to messages recorded on a phone answering system, the user typically must stand by with a paper and pen or pencil to recording data such as the callers name, phone number, date of call, etc. This process of transcribing voice messages is time consuming and error prone.

This invention combines a printing system and a phone answering system using caller ID and voice recognition technology.

When the user is away from the telephone, the answering machine records a caller's incoming message. Caller identification technology and voice recognition technology are used to digitally encode information about incoming phone messages. When the user returns to the phone answering machine and wishes to retrieve recorded messages they may be played as an audio recording or printed on paper for reference and portability.
