Title (EN) INTERNET ANSWERING MACHINE
(FR) REPONDEUR POUR INTERNET
Abstract:
(EN) An answering machine receives and records both voice and email messages. The answering machine includes a telephone line interface, a modem, a processor, memory for storing the processor software and recording the messages, a speaker, a display and a keypad. When the answering machine detects a ring signal on the telephone line to which it is connected, it answers the call. The answering machine plays an outgoing message for the caller to hear and records the caller's incoming voice message. Periodically or at predetermined times, the answering machine may check for email messages by calling service provider. When the service provider answers the call, the answering machine logs in, downloads and stores at least a portion of email messages that have been received. A user can view the display and review the messages. Voice mail messages are played through the speaker, and email messages are provided on the display.
(FR) Un répondeur reçoit et enregistre aussi bien la voix que les messages électroniques. Il comprend une interface de ligne téléphonique, un modem, un processeur, une mémoire pour stocker le logiciel du processeur et enregistrer les messages, un haut-parleur, un afficheur et un clavier. Quand il détecte un signal sonore sur la ligne téléphonique à laquelle il est relié, il répond à l'appel. Il émet un message à l'intention de l'appelant et enregistre le message vocal entrant laissé par celui-ci. Périodiquement ou à des intervalles de temps prédéterminés, il peut rechercher les messages électroniques en appelant un prestataire de services. Quand celui-ci répond à l'appel, le répondeur se met en route, télécharge et stocke au moins une partie des messages reçus. L'utilisateur peut regarder l'afficheur pour visualiser les messages. Les messages vocaux sont diffusés par le haut-parleur, et les messages électroniques affichés sur l'afficheur.
