Abstract

Communication devices such as speaker phones and trunking radios have the ability to make voice communication heard by multiple users at one time without the knowledge or possibly the intention of the call initiator. Thus, possibly jeopardizing the "privacy" of the voice communication. Privacy in this aspect describes the ability of the caller to choose a more private mode of listening for the called user, but not that the voice communication would be secure in that it could not be intercepted or eavesdropped on intentionally by other means.
