Alpha-numeric data for a paging transmitter is generated from DTMF input as from a telephone line. A user-friendly dataentry method from a standard DTMF telephone and synthesized voice feedback are provided and the need for operator assistance for alpha-numeric input to a paging system is eliminated. A rudimentary but full featured system can be built for under one hundred dollars. This system removes a major obstacle to the wide-spread use of alphanumeric pagers.
