This article describes an improvement for a centralized dictation system
wherein the improvement comprises storage of audio as phonemes.
In a centralized dictation system many principals using portable dictation
devices produce input for a plurality of transcription stations. Between the
principals and transcriptionists there is an automated interface controller directing
the work flow.
The portable dictating device uses discs, but cassettes or a digital storage
medium, such as bubbles, may be used. The portable has logic enabling
identification of the principal to the controller which enables the controller to
manage the total dictation system. Transmission may be via a phone network or
hard-wired. Alternatively the controller may poll the portables and take control of
one ready to transmit.
Controller functions include receiving information from the portables and
routing the dictation to secretaries. The controller keeps complete logs of data
such as priority, time dictation received, length of dictation, time transcribed,
which principal dictated and which secretary transcribed. Reports may be had
upon request in any format desired by adding a printer to the system.
The controller stores dictation in digital form via phonemes.

voice in a conventional manner. If the portable stores voice
conventionally, then the controller listens to the voice, translates
the sounds into its phone...
