Abstract

This device provides control and interfacing of a voice response (VR) device with data processing equipment and features discrimination of inter (syllabic/word) quiet versus true quiet in human speech for efficient use of mass storage. The VR device is shown in Figs. 1-3. It is an input/output (I/O) port that enables a data processing system to record and reproduce the human voice. Figs. 4 and 5 illustrate human speech waveforms. A VR device digitizes the human voice so that it can be stored on disk or some other digital storage device; it will also reproduce the original voice from stored digital data.
