Functional VOR for Telephone Recording Systems

Functional VOR (Voice Operating System) capabilities are incorporated into a remotely controlled telephone recording system for reducing blank blocks between recorded segments and preventing clipping upon start-up without utilizing an audio buffer.

With the system in the record mode and audio being received from a dictator at a remote telephone and detected, recording takes place in a normal manner. When there is a specified time lapse without detected incoming audio, a talkdown tone is generated by the system and transmitted to the dictator. The beginning of the talkdown tone is also the beginning of a timed period within which audio must be received to prevent the system from automatically changing from a recording mode to a stop mode. When the system is in the stop mode, a tone indicative thereof is generated and transmitted to the dictator. Positive action on the part of the dictator is then required to change modes and continue recording.

At the beginning of the stop mode, disconnect timeout begins and rollback to the recording position at the beginning of the talkdown tone is effected to conserve recording medium and eliminate blank blocks between recorded segments. The system will prevent the dictator from again entering the record mode until rollback is complete.
